Dyson Overview

Much has changed since James Dyson launched the bagless vacuum that started our business. In the time since, Dyson engineers have invented heat-free hand dryers, bladeless fans, long-life LED lighting and even our own digital motor.

Today, vacuums represent just half of our sales. And Dyson has even broader ambitions still. With a future technology pipeline spanning 25 years, the next few are set to be our busiest yet. 3,000 new people. 100 new machines. And four brand new product categories by 2020. So get ready for the next big thing.

Market Overview

Our story begins in 2004 and today we have more than 800 people working in Singapore. The high technology manufacturing facility in West Park produced its 10 millionth motor in July 2015. With an investment of another $100m, we will now be able to increase our motor manufacturing capacity to 11 million a year. In our research and design hub in Alexandra, the engineers focus on developing the Air Multiplier™ technology, as well as other enabling technologies in electronics, software, robotics and many others; they help drive future portfolios of technology and develop areas of cross development between our product categories.

Function Overview

Dyson’s success is all about its people. To meet ambitious growth, our Talent Acquisition team is rapidly expanding our ranks – from engineers and marketeers, to legal, financial and strategic brains. Not just finding the best people, but the right people for Dyson - whether they come with experience or potential. It takes a deep understanding of our culture, departments and often complex roles. Working closely with candidates and senior stakeholders, it’s a dynamic, fast-moving environment. As we head into unknown global and technical territories, new challenges await. And each recruitment experience must put Dyson ahead of the competition.


The University Talent Acquisition Partner (Engineering) is a new role based in Singapore, resourcing for our Research, Design & Development Intern & Graduate programmes based in Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. We are looking to raise our profile at key universities across Asia Pacific to ensure we are an employer of choice for graduate and undergraduate talent. You will be at the forefront of driving marketing initiatives, defining the candidate experience through the delivery of professional, personal candidate management, and managing the assessment and marketing events to ensure the best candidates are engaged and influenced to join us.


You'll need to be passionate about recruitment and the opportunity to bring the best Student talent into Dyson.You'll demonstrate this through previous recruitment experience, ideally from in-house or RPO recruitment roles, and an understanding of the challenges and timelines for volume recruitment and assessment processes. Direct involvement with University recruitment in Singapore, Malaysia, and across APAC is an advantage, as are local languages, as you will need to identify key partners, build relationships with faculties, networks and students. You'll be based in the HR team but working as part of the Global 'Early Careers'  Talent Acquisition team, needing to work collaboratively but equally as comfortable working to your own agenda and on your own initiative. Your focus on delivering exceptional customer service and a positive candidate experience is key. This is a fast paced environment so flexibility, a can-do attitude and willingness to "muck in" are essential.
