What you will be doing

Who is Hilti?

Hilti is where innovation is improving productivity, safety and sustainability in the global construction industry, and beyond. Where strong customer relationships are creating solutions that build a better future. Where there is pride and a sense of belonging across our 120 locations, carrying right into our lives and homes. Where people are exploring possibilities, leveraging their potential, owning their personal development and growing lasting careers. Hilti is very proud to be ranked as the UK's 12th best large organisation to work for in the Great Place to Work survey.

What's the role?

We’re looking for the next generation of high-performing, multi-lingual, post-graduate talents to take our company forward. Hilti Outperformer is a global management development program like no other, with real responsibility from day one.

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.

What does the role involve?

Hilti Outperformer is a two-year program, where you’ll quickly be involved in a range of international projects, with lots of exposure to senior management. It’s fast paced and challenging, but we’ll closely coach and mentor you. The program is split into four main stages of work:

12 months as an Account Manager or field engineer in Great Britain.

3 months on an operational project in Northern Europe office: either Sweden/Denmark/Finland or Ireland. It could be logistics, HR, finance, marketing or engineering.

6 months on a strategic project at regional headquarters in Manchester, GB.

3 months on an international project outside the region. If you’ve come from a mature market, you’ll work in an emerging market, and vice versa.

We want your thirst to learn, courage to challenge and desire to improve things, including yourself

What you will have

You have recently graduated, or you’re preparing to graduate in 2023, with a Master’s degree or PhD. Your degree is likely to be in business management, finance or engineering, but we’ll consider subjects like economics, politics or international studies if you can prove you have a mind for our business.
You have spent at least three months, in a professional environment, like an internship, apprenticeship or work experience, or have just started your career and want an opportunity where you can perform well and progress.
You are multilingual – at least fluent in English and at least one other language – and you’ve gained international experience during your work or studies abroad.
You are curious and committed, a flexible team player with good communication and social skills. You’re a global thinker, interested in general management topics, keen for intercultural experiences and opportunities working abroad.
  • What do we offer

  • Show us what you can do and, in return, we promise you the experience of a lifetime, the opportunity to work internationally, and a fast-track career in global senior management with an unlimited contract. You’ll also take part in some fascinating courses and events:

    Leadership development program – a comprehensive learning journey with IMD business school in Lausanne, Switzerland, with a qualification from IMD.

    Business management training – individual training at Hilti. A focus on behavioural profiles, personal strengths, leadership styles and communication skills.

    Global summit – 4-5 days at our global headquarters in Liechtenstein. A look at the way global business units function, plus soft skills like situational leadership and international teamwork.

    Social project – 7-8 days ‘building a better future’. A hands-on and hugely impactful community project, like our recent house building for displaced refugees in Bosnia.

    We really value our people and we’ve worked hard to develop a competitive reward package that reflects this. 

    Some of the benefits we offer include:

    • Genuine career advancement (more than 80% of all leadership roles are filled internally)

    • Competitive salary and above-average performance bonus

     • 6% employer pension contributions

    • Private Health Insurance and Employee Assistance Programme

    • 33 days' holiday (inc. Bank Holidays) plus the ability to purchase 5 days more annually
