What's the role?
We’re looking for customer-focused field engineers to kick start their careers in a rewarding, high-performing, international company.
Who is Hilti?
If you’ve worked in engineering, you may well 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 78 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service. With some 29,000 people in more than 125countries, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth as you learn, grow and carve-out your career.
What does the role involve?
As a non-structural field engineer, you’ll be working with our customers, sales teams, contractors and designers to drive the sales of specific products.
This involves educating key influencers on construction projects about the proper use, advantages and value of Hilti products, with a view to securing their specification in the designs. You’ll then communicate these product specs from design teams to sales teams, assigning account managers with their conversion into sales. It means visiting job sites to assess design problems - as well as opportunities - giving technical advice, solutions and support, and adding value through the use of Hilti products.
It might also mean looking into new business prospects by running customer surveys for product development, and working with sales teams to develop local strategies. Day to day, you’ll report to your Technical Manager.
What do we offer?
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, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. If you have two or more years’ experience in engineering or construction, it’ll be a big advantage.
What you need is:
- • A bachelor’s degree, ideally in mechanical engineering
- • An agile approach to solving problems
- • Strong communication skills
- • Enthusiasm to learn and drive to succeed
