Dyson to create 300 jobs after record £1 billion turnover
17 February 2012
The British technology company, best known for its vacuum cleaners, has announced the creation of hundreds of new jobs.
This comes after Dyson hit a £1billion turnover for the first time in the company’s 20 year history.
Two thirds of the 300 new jobs will be engineering positions, while the rest are said to go to graduates. These new positions equate to 8%t of the 3,600 staff Dyson employs worldwide.
This follows on from the news that after ten years as Dyson CEO Martin McCourt is passing the baton on to Dyson’s American President, Max Conze.
Commenting on his time at Dyson, McCourt says: “Dyson has been an incredible experience. Having seen it develop from a UK business to a global technology company, I’m in a good place to end this chapter and begin the next.
"I’ve worked closely with Max and he embraces Dyson’s outlook – technology is always our focus. I am proud of the exceptional team that will propel Dyson forward.”
James Dyson, founder of the company, adds: “Martin’s leadership has resulted in an exceptional team achieving great things, for which I am very grateful. Max shares my faith in young talent – or inexperience – and, as we begin a new phase, we are redoubling our efforts to bring in the brightest graduates, not just in engineering, but across Dyson, here in the UK and overseas.”
