Dyson Overview

Things move quickly at Dyson. In twenty years, what began with one man and one idea has grown into a global technology company, with 6,000 people and a presence in over 70 countries. From Malmesbury to Malaysia to the US to Australasia and many countries in between, we’ve sold over 80 million machines.

And it’s just the start. From 2016 our Malmesbury HQ is doubling its footprint. The US, our biggest market, is doubling their sales scope. And new frontiers are opening up across South East Asia and beyond. More people, more ideas and more space for more invention. The next four years will be our biggest and busiest yet.

Market Overview

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Wiltshire, but only 15 minutes from the M4 and well connected by rail, our Malmesbury HQ is home to more than 3,000 people in a growing campus that houses our IT, Finance, Group Commercial, RDD and GB & Ireland Market teams. With 3 cafes, a gym and sports facility and a selection of iconic engineering legends including our Harrier and Lightning jets, it’s an inspirational place to work and the Digital team is based in the most recently built, agile workspace.

Function Overview

Spanning across Dyson’s presence online, transactional capabilities, customer care, marketing support and the front and back office technology that makes Dyson work, it is the nerve centre of Dyson. The team spans many specialities from Technical to Business Analysis and Testing. Crucially, as we look to drive future growth by increasing direct sales, becomes our most vital global sales channel. Like Dyson products, we embrace the latest technologies, excelling in quality and usability.


The role will be responsible for overseeing the solution architecture of the SAP ECC implementation, interaction with internal teams and contacts outside of IT to include business stakeholders and 3rd parties. You will oversee the production of detailed design specifications, maintain application portfolios, develop strategies and support business reviews across all landscapes and will help lead the next major design step-change for ERP with a move to S/4HANA ; a multi-year, multi-step critical change in the way our enterprise capability is provided.


We are looking for someone that demonstrates a proven track record in enterprise level application design / application architecture and has experience in senior stakeholder management from a technical and non-technical view point.

You must have had experience of the general SAP ERP solution landscape (and underlying technology), ideally SAP ECC 6.0, with a desirable focus on Sales, Logistics and Finance. Knowledge of SAP APO and/or IBP supply chain capabilities such as demand and supply planning would be an advantage
