Procurement Strategy Manager

SGD Competitive Remuneration Package

Singapore, Singapore


As procurement in Dyson is growing rapidly in size and in complexity, with a rising number of transactions and touch points, we are going through a transformation toward increased control and streamlined processes. The responsibility of the Procurement Centre of Excellence is increasing with business process ownership, and more experienced resources are needed to successfully take that effort on.

Market Overview

In 2000, Dyson moved production from Malmesbury to Malaysia to be closer to our supply chains and open up international growth. The small team of 10 has now grown to almost 1,200 – forming Dyson’s second biggest global hub. Located in the exhilarating industrial heart of Johor, it’s also home to RDD, IT, operations,  finance, creative and HR.

The RDD facility is central to our plans to launch 100 new machines in the next four years. To meet these ambitions, we recently expanded the site to 30,000m², with 50 advanced technology labs and 700 new engineers. In the Dyson world, there’s no more exciting place to be.
