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?

You will initially be working on the ground in an Account Manager role, learning the commercial aspects of our business, before progressing on to a pathway role in Sales or Marketing, either moving into team leadership (where you’ll become part of our Emerging Leaders programme) or developing in an expert role.

What does the role involve?

The Sales and Marketing Programme is a two-year scheme, where you’ll quickly be involved in the day to day running of our business, whilst at the same time gaining exposure to senior management. It will be fast paced and testing but it’s designed for you to best understand how the business works, before moving into a more senior landing role.

Throughout this two-year programme, you will be mentored by a member of our leadership team, who will work closely with you on your development. You will also have dedicated time with our HR and Learning and Development teams, to ensure you have a full range of support throughout your time on the programme and that we use your preferences and skills to help guide you to the right career path for you.

Upon successful completion of the programme, you will progress into a role in either Sales or Marketing, which could see you working as a Sales Team Leader, an International Product Manager or even a Marketing Business Partner – the possibilities are endless!

Show us what you can do and, in return, we promise you a wealth of opportunities for your career progression (in both the UK and beyond) and a fast-track career, in either a Sales or Marketing pathway.

What you will have

You have recently graduated, or you’re preparing to graduate in 2023 (ideally you’ll have either a Master’s degree or a Bachelor’s plus some commercial experience gained through an industrial placement or internship)
We recognise Master’s degrees and internships aren’t accessible for everyone, so if you don’t have these you’ll need some work experience in a customer-facing role plus a 2:1 or above predicted at undergraduate level
You are curious and committed, a flexible team player with good communication and social skills
You need to be nationally mobile as your initial Account Manager role could be based anywhere in the UK
You need a full, valid manual driving license.
