Up to 240 jobs could be at risk at Dyson

Up to 240 jobs could be at risk at engineering firm Dyson.

The company, who's headquarters are based in Malmesbury in Wiltshire, is planning a restructure.

A Dyson spokesman said the changes would lead to a number of redundancies in middle-management and non-engineering roles worldwide.

Dyson says not all of the 240 employees would lose their job, with other offices being used to offer them new roles.

To be fit for the future we must make some changes to concentrate our resources on technology and product development. Most of the changes are very positive, but others are more difficult.

We are proposing a restructure in functions where growth has caused an expansion of roles.

Regrettably this would lead to a number of redundancies, largely in our middle-management and non-engineering roles.
