Description

Engineering company Dyson has announced new job creation at its UK headquarters in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. It is recruiting for 400 engineers to join the company in 2014.

The jobs are part of a larger 25-year plan to create 3,000 new engineering jobs in the UK. It is thought that the numbers employed at the Malmesbury site could increase from 2,000 to 5,000. The new jobs are linked to the "ideas factory" division of the business; Dyson's Research and Development arm.

The jobs are further good news for the company which had previously announced job creation at the same site in 2012.
