Programme Management Industrial Attachment Program

Competitive

Singapore, Singapore

Description

At Dyson, our internships are about getting hands-on from day one. Not getting bored. In fact, our interns often get to share their ideas with our senior leaders and management. Dyson opened its new Singapore Technology Centre earlier this year. In this ambitious, top secret centre, some of the world’s brightest engineering minds continually push the boundaries of science & technology.

Market Overview

Our Singapore story began in 2004 and today we have more than 1000 people working here. At the beginning of 2017 we opened our new, state of the art, Singapore Technology Centre in Science Park I, minutes from Singapore’s technology and start-up community. This new Technology Centre houses some of Dyson’s most advanced facilities including Robotics and Sensors laboratories and Smart Home, Connectivity & Mobile Applications laboratories as well as an Advanced Control Tower with the latest technology to develop its analytics driven activities. Not too far away is West Park, our flagship advanced motor manufacturing facility where we develop our autonomous robotic manufacturing capabilities – more than 300 robots assemble our Dyson Digital Motor (DDM) here. It is here that we develop our next generation of motor technology.

Function Overview

Dyson’s Programme Managers play a critical role in delivering Dyson’s future technology. Coordinating and communicating across all disciplines of design, procurement, manufacturing, commercial and marketing to ensure the effective and timely delivery of projects, against defined boundaries of time, specification and cost.

Accountabilities

During this placement you’ll be working on reputation-defining projects from day one as part of a global team of Programme Managers. You’ll play a critical role in the development of new Dyson technology ensuring project deliverables are met in a timely manner. This is a broad and varied role, meaning no two days are the same. Some of your responsibilities could include:


•Coordinating and communicating project status cross-functionally to ensure effective and timely input

•Taking an active, hands-on role to understand how engineering problems are resolved thoroughly and help support that resolution

•Utilising established Dyson development processes, good engineering practice and discipline to deliver solutions

•Governance and organisation of project related information

•Supporting the allocation of resources against time plans and support finance in overall project cost management

•Working with development teams to ensure new technologies maximize the performance of new products

Skills

You’ll need outstanding communication and interpersonal skills with the confidence to negotiate with and influence a range of stakeholders across the business, from engineers to marketers. You’ll also be able to demonstrate how you manage your time effectively and multi-task so experience of a high-pressure, competitive environment would be beneficial. You are likely to be studying for an engineering degree, as this will help you understand the complexities of our business requirements, but this is not essential. Demonstrable commercial awareness would be advantageous. We like people who show some get-up-and-go and passion for what they do. We’ll expect a lot from you. And no day will be the same as the last.

Benefits Overview

Professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to fuelling and realising ambition.
