Dyson To Hire 250 S’poreans As Part Of Its S$5.1B Global Investment
On Wednesday April 14, Dyson announced plans to allocate its S $ 5 billion global investment in new technologies and research programs to hire at least 250 additional engineers and scientists in Singapore over the next five years.
There are currently around 700 engineers and scientists working for the Dyson team in Singapore, which has 1,400 people.
Dyson chief executive Roland Krueger said the tech giant was creating new roles in the software and electronics teams, as well as the creation of a new global cybersecurity center.
Thus, they will have to hire the right talents in the city-state to develop patentable technologies “more complex and intelligent”.
Currently, Singapore is the global headquarters of Dyson, the center of its engineering teams with a focus on commercial manufacturing and supply chain operations.
Last November, Dyson announced that Singapore would be one of three markets it plans to invest more in, along with the Philippines and the UK. In 2020, Dyson hired over 100 engineers in Singapore
Dyson is set to open a new global headquarters in Singapore in the colonial landmark of St James Power Station, next to the VivoCity shopping center at HarbourFront. The first phase of the head office restoration work is complete.
It also plans to build more research and manufacturing facilities and university research programs in Singapore. They will build a new cyber fusion center for the development of future technologies at their current £ 330million (S $ 608million) headquarters at Science Park 1.
Hailing from the UK, Dyson is widely known as a household appliance brand specializing in vacuum cleaners, air purifiers, fans and lighting. It is a multibillion dollar company that has experienced healthy and rapid growth over the past decade.
Dyson moved its headquarters to Singapore in 2017, shifting its tax base from the UK to Singapore.
The move is part of Sir James Dyson’s vision to develop a new chapter in cybersecurity, robotic engineering and artificial intelligence. Further down the pipeline there are plans to build their own electric cars.
“Dyson is focused on developing smart technologies and making products that know and anticipate what you want before they do it. Machine learning gives our products the intelligence to understand and respond to the environment, ”said Sir Dyson.
Dyson’s strategic move to Singapore, along with massive investments and recruitment plans, demonstrate the company’s confidence in Singapore’s talent pool and the regulatory environment conducive to the development of new innovations and technologies.
Dr Beh Swan Gin, Chairman of the Singapore Economic Development Board, welcomes Dyson’s development plans. In his view, Dyson’s operations will provide exciting opportunities for the growth and development of top engineering and scientific talent in Singapore.
Currently there are 132 active vacancies in Singapore on the Dyson career page.
All kinds of engineering and research positions are open for commercial manufacturing, storage and logistics, supply chain operations, software and robotics, cybersecurity, as well as medical technology. Other positions include roles in business development, operations and management, human resources and finance, IT risk and compliance, content design and production.
