The Workplace

Challenging projects. Real responsibilities.

You’ll work alongside Dyson technology experts for three days of the week, throughout the four year programme. These work rotations form an essential part of your Apprenticeship qualification and whilst they do not carry credit, they have learning outcomes that need to be met in order for you to progress to the next part of the Programme. The specific information about what you can expect to learn in rotations can be found here.

In Years 1 and 2 you will complete 4 engineering rotations in the workplace covering the following areas (2 in each year):

  • Mechanical engineering
  • Electrical and electronic engineering
  • Software engineering
  • New Product Innovation (NPI)

These rotations will happen in new product development teams or technology research teams which will give you a broad experience of the product development process. The engineering rotations will help to consolidate your understanding of engineering fundamentals in practice.

For your final two years, you'll have the opportunity to choose your preferred specialism in the workplace to complement what you study. We'll work with you and Dyson Technology to place you in a team depending on your, skills, experience and the business need.

Working hours: You're working a real job and as an employee of Dyson you'll be expected to maintain normal office hours: typically either 8:00–16:30 or 9:00–17:30 Monday to Thursday, finishing an hour earlier on Fridays.
