DYSON has announced plans to create more than 900 jobs in Bristol and Wiltshire.

The company is looking for engineers and digital specialists after a strong financial performance last year.

The company's annual revenue was up 5 per cent, rising to £6bn worldwide.

The new jobs in the south west are part of Dyson's largest ever recruitment drive, with a £600m cash injection into technology and laboratories scheduled for the year ahead.

The new roles will be based in Bristol city centre and other sites including campuses at Malmesbury and Hullavington Airfield in Wiltshire.

The firm's founder James Dyson said: "We like looking at problems in the wrong way and pioneering our own solutions. As a result, we are succeeding and growing. But to continue this exciting journey we need the best and brightest engineers and digital experts to join us."
