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 home country
• 3 months on an operational project in Asia Pacific country
• 6 months on a strategic project in regional headquarters
• 3 months on an international strategic project in another region

80% of our management positions are filled with internal candidates. It’s testament to how much we value, develop and look after our people

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:

Why should you apply?

We have a high-performing culture for highly passionate people. If you’ve never worked in sales or construction, that’s not a problem. Success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background is.

What you need is:

  • You hold a master's degree (economics, business administration, international management, engineering, marketing or finance)
  • You’ve spent at least three months, and up to two years, 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 have gained international experience through your work or studies and have spent between 3 months to 2 years in a professional environment
  • You enjoy learning and are mature, asssertive, curious and dedicated
  • You're a flexible team player, with good communication, social sklls, and enthusiasm to inspire others
  • You're internationally mobile and is a global thinker who is keen for diverse cultural experiences and the opportunity to work abroad

“I don’t have a sales background and, when I went to my careers fair, most companies only wanted to speak to you if you had the right experience. Hilti were completely open-minded. They were more interested in me than in which degree I was doing.”
