Dyson could provide graduate job opportunities

Published: Tuesday, 27 April 2010   Category: Science, Engineering and IT

Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in science, engineering and IT may be interested to hear that Dyson plans to increase the number of engineers and scientists from 350 to 700.

The jobs, all based at the company's base in Malmesbury, will be in addition to the 2,500-strong global workforce and provides a shift from their outsourcing efforts to the far east.

Sir James Dyson, the owner and inventor of the Dyson vacuum cleaners, said that the recession had treated his firm well and that he was looking to employ more people as a result.

He added: "We have always been big recruiters, and now we are looking for a range of graduates with the specialist skills to work on new products as well as further development of existing products such as the Airblade [hand-dryer]."

Dyson's boost may have something to do with French footballer Thierry Henry, whose dubious handball that denied Ireland a World Cup place, led thousands of Irishmen and women to shun the Henry vacuum cleaner.
