What’s the role?

We’re looking for the next generation of high-performing, post-graduate technical talents to take our company forward. This is a management development programme like no other, spanning multiple years and with international exposure and real responsibility from day one.
We’re seeking civil, structural or mechanical engineering graduates with commercial acumen and an interest in an international career. You will have the opportunity to work on some of the UK’s biggest construction projects whilst at the same time receiving world-class training and development to take your career to the next level. As you perform and develop, we will provide the coaching you need to step into a leadership role within Hilti, whether that’s in the UK or internationally.
If successful, your starting role could be in the UK or Sweden, Denmark, Finland or Ireland so it would be good to know your preference in location when applying.
Please note that we will be closing our application window on 31 October 2021 and you will receive further communication from us throughout early November 2021.

Who is Hilti?

If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service.

With 30,000 people in more than 120 countries, which we’re looking to expand, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow your career.

What does the role involve?

We are offering a multi-year programme where you’ll step out from your area of technical expertise and broaden your skillset, with lots of exposure to senior management. It’s fast paced and challenging, but we’ll closely coach and mentor you.

To make you the best leader you can be at Hilti, you need hands-on experience of how we operate, so you’ll spend the first two years learning our business from the ground up, either as a direct sales account manager or a field engineer. No two days are the same but you’ll spend most of your time visiting our customers, wherever they’re busy working, to find out how we can help them. You could find yourself on construction sites or in offices and warehouses. You need to happy to get your hands dirty as this is a really hands-on job.

You’ll be rolling up your sleeves to demonstrate some of the most pioneering products in the industry, along with all the services and after-care that come with the Hilti name. You’ll be nurturing relationships with warm and responsive customers and helping them find the most innovative and cost-efficient solutions for their needs.

At the same time, you will benefit from close mentoring from a Sales or Marketing Director and will undertake many leadership courses at our award-winning training centre in Manchester to ensure we are preparing you for the demands of a leadership role. You’ll also complete a project with the rest of your cohort along the way.

Once you land in the business after the initial two years your development accelerates – there are opportunities across engineering management, product development and technical marketing, as well as a chance to work abroad if that’s of interest. From there, you will follow your interests to build your career across sales, marketing or engineering, with a defined path to a director role.

Hilti Finland has been rated in Finland the 11th Best Place to Work in the class of middle sized companies. As per the Great Place to Work employee opinion survey 2021 81% of our employees consider our company as a total a great place to work.

What do we offer?

You will be part of our outstanding culture. For us personal and professional development go together with the growth of our company. We develop, challenge and support our employees to develop and progress in their Hilti career. We’ll give you everything you need to excel in your role, including ongoing training and lots of responsibility from the start. In return for your exceptional performance and consistent results, you’ll receive one-to-one career mentoring, as well as exciting opportunities to move around the business.

Why should you apply?

We have an excellent mix of people and some of our best account managers joined us with no experience. So, if you’ve never worked in sales or construction, that’s fine with us. Success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background.

What you need is:

  • 2021 or 2022 graduate in Civil, Structural or Mechanical Engineering
  • Extracurricular activities (clubs and societies, start-ups, work experience in parallel with study)
  • High interest and passion for innovation – you’re an early adopter of technology
  • You need to be curious, energised by learning and an instigator of change – you don’t settle for the status quo
  • You connect the dots and have excellent problem-solving skills
  • You enjoy forming connections with others, building networks and inspiring those around you
  • You’re self-motivated and driven to achieve your goals – you’re always challenging yourself to go further
  • International outlook and ideally an interest in working abroad (if you speak another language that’s a bonus but English is our business language and the only pre-requisite)
