Market OverviewNestled in the Cotswolds close to landmarks of the revolutionary Victorian engineer Brunel, Dyson Northern Europe shares offices and has close links with Dyson HQ. As Dyson’s most established market, Northern Europe provides unique challenges to our growth. We thrive on confronting these head on: developing new categories, stronger claims, more targeted marketing and more engaging retail environments to fight off tough competition. It builds great camaraderie and cross-team support – and motivates us to set increasingly ambitious targets.
Function OverviewDyson machines work differently to others. So those who sell them need to think differently and understand complex engineering. Our Retail Sales teams are experts who bring the retail world up to speed. Training. Introducing our new technology. And ensuring the Dyson brand stands out. We gain deep insights into competitors and customers alike, driving national sales strategies to bring Dyson technology into more stores and homes. It’s an energetic team in a fast-paced retail environment. And like everyone at Dyson, we constantly challenge how to make future technology even more successful.
You will be responsible for driving sales value growth and brand awareness across the Kent region by building brand advocacy and strong relationships with our retailer colleagues in store.
Where we demonstrate, we win. You will lead a team of Dyson Demonstrators in-store, motivating, coaching and ensuring the compliance strategy is executed. There is a requirement to work at least two weekends in any four-week period.

You will have a proven leadership background within a multi-site retail environment. Experience of working to and exceeding targets. A skilled negotiator with brilliant presentation skills.
