“We’re recruiting a strong, talented workforce for our New Zealand office to deliver new category growth to retail partners in the long term, and can’t wait to get started.”

Andrew says over the past three years, Dyson has almost doubled its marketing investment in New Zealand.

“We expect to continue that level of commitment in future years with exciting innovations that will revolutionise categories.”
