Dyson to create 200 jobs in the UK as part of £2.75bn global investment
2 Minute Read
Dyson begins its search for hundreds of the brightest minds in science, health, software, electronics and engineering. The new expansion – focused on the UK and Singapore – is part of Dyson’s £2.75 billion global investment plan, first announced in November 2020, and builds on its commitment to deepen research into advanced robotics and AI with investment into new specialisms.
With plans to hire 250 additional engineers at its Headquarters in Singapore, Dyson will double its existing software and electronics engineering teams. After creating a unique workspace in the heart of Singapore, it will shortly move into its new building, St James Power Station, whilst maintaining its current centre at Science Park 1. While Dyson’s Singapore Technology Centre is retained as a hub for digital, engineering and cybersecurity activities, the move to St James’ Power Station will more than double the company’s existing Singapore footprint.
Alongside the expansion in Singapore, Dyson plans to hire 200 new science and research roles on its Malmesbury and Hullavington Innovation Campuses in the UK. The roles will be focused on fundamental scientific, mathematical and engineering breakthroughs across a range of fields including energy storage, AI, Machine Learning, high-speed digital motors, sensing technology, and material science.
James Dyson, Founder & Chief Engineer, said:
“We are growing our research and engineering teams to achieve radical leaps in the performance of our machines, underpinned by technologies such as solid-state batteries and robotics. The recruits will join a very broad team, from our Dyson Undergraduates at the Dyson Institute, to world-experts in their fields. Dyson is a very global business. Research and Development teams increasingly span UK, Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia and US, we sell in 83 markets globally, and our headquarters are in Singapore.”
With the new research-focused roles based on Dyson’s UK Innovation Campus, the site continues to grow as one of the largest R&D hubs in Britain. The site is home to one of the largest and most advanced energy storage labs in the UK as well as suites of scanning electron microscopes, electromagnetic compatibility chambers, semi-anechoic chambers, microbiology labs, hair-science labs, air filtration chambers, and advanced rapid prototyping facilities.
