350 new science and engineering jobs in Wiltshire

Sir James Dyson, One of the World's Leading Engineers

Sir James Dyson, One of the World’s Leading Engineers

Dyson – the second highest UK patent filer after Rolls Royce plans to create 350 science and engineering jobs in Wiltshire. New positions will include graduate design engineers, mechanical engineers and acoustic engineers.

The new engineers, mainly university graduates, will work at Dyson’s laboratories in Malmesbury, where machines are conceived, researched and designed.

Last month, Sir James Dyson, one of the world’s leading design engineers, called for more investment in science and engineering industries in order to make the UK Europe’s leading hi-tech exporter.  “We need to inspire and enlighten people: science and engineering can change lives, society and the economy,” he said.

Dyson employs more than 2,500 people worldwide, with 1,000 of those working in Wiltshire. The main areas of expertise include microbiology, fluid, mechanical, electrical, electro-magnetic compatibility, thermal, acoustic and software engineering. The company have seen a surge in their research and development efforts since 2005, with new technologies including the Dyson Air Multiplier fan, the Dyson Airblade hand dryer and Dyson’s smallest-ever vacuum cleaner – DC26 City.

Sir James said: “I am extremely proud of the new technology developed by our engineers in Malmesbury. “It is vital that Dyson – and the UK – continues to invest in the nation’s engineering talent if we are to stay ahead. With excellent young aspiring scientists and engineers in our schools it falls to companies such as Dyson to encourage this future generation.”
