Dyson are looking for their next generation of sales leaders.

Full job description

Dyson are looking for their next generation of sales leaders. Our Sales Graduate programme is based within the Great Britain, Ireland and Nordics market. This gives our Graduates great exposure to the wider GBI&N sales team through broad and specific business experience and building the appropriate skills to allow them to lead, manage and motivate a sales team.

Dyson Overview

Much has changed since James Dyson launched the bagless vacuum that started our business. In the time since, Dyson engineers have invented heat-free hand dryers, bladeless fans, long-life LED lighting and even our own digital motor.
Today, vacuums represent just half of our sales. And Dyson has even broader ambitions still. With a future technology pipeline spanning 25 years, the next few are set to be our busiest yet. 3,000 new people. 100 new machines. And four brand new product categories by 2020.
