What's the role?
We’re looking for talented graduates to develop their career with us, starting in our sales function.
You will have the opportunity to work on exciting construction projects, whilst at the same time receiving world-class training and development to take your career to the next level. But this is no ordinary sales job, as ours is a uniquely high-performing and supportive working culture.
Please note this role is open to both experienced candidates seeking an immediate start and current students seeking a graduate role from September 2018.
The assessment centre will be held in Central London on Tuesday 1st May to cover all locations.
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 some 27,000 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?
As an account manager, 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.
Ours is a model of professional consultative selling, and it’s a really hands-on job. It means 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. Far from traditional cold calling, it’s about nurturing relationships with warm and responsive customers and helping them find the most innovative and cost-efficient solutions for their needs.
