Account Manager

Singapore
Reference No: WD-0003256

What's the role?

We are looking for candidates with strong business acumen to unleash high potential at Hilti, starting as Account Manager. This is no ordinary job. Our people come from all different backgrounds with a shared dedication to high performance, consistent results and outstanding customer service.

Who is Hilti?

If you’re new to our 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 first-rate service. With 30,000 people in more than 120 countries, 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 an Account Manager, you will directly report to the Area Sales Manager. You’ll be out and about visiting our customers, wherever they’re busy working, to find out how we can help them. You could find yourself on construction sites and plants or in offices and warehouses.

Ours is a model of consultative selling, and it’s really a hands-on job. Professional knowledge in products, market and service are fundamental to the role as key responsibilities involve developing and growing the assigned sales territories. You will need strong winning mindset to identify new sales potential and turn leads into our customers. Far from traditional cold calling, it’s about nurturing relationships with warm and responsive customers. From day to day, challenging tasks and responsibilities will help you pave your way to becoming an ambitious market leader.

At Hilti, you’ll enjoy all the perks of being part of a big company, but with the autonomy of running a small business.

What do we offer?

We’ll give you what you need to excel in your role, including ongoing training from the start. Your responsibilities will be great and, with them, we'll give you the freedom and autonomy to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding results.

Show us what you’re made of and we’ll offer you opportunities to move around the business – to work abroad, experience different job functions and tackle different markets. It’s a great way to find the right match for your ambitions and achieve the exciting career you’re after.
On top of these, we have a thorough people review process, unlike any we know of in any other business. We screen everyone in the company in a yearly career performance matching process. It means we can pair talent with opportunities - developing our people in their current roles or challenging them to work in new ways or in new places. It’s how we find the right fit and further our teams personally and professionally.

Why should you apply?

We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. So, if you’ve never worked in construction, that’s fine with us. Success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background.

What you need is:

  • Degree in any discipline, preferably in Engineering
  • At least 3 year of sales experience or equivalent customer facing experience gained in MNCs
  • Previous experience in Interior Finishing would be highly advantageous
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Dynamic personality with strong winning and high performance mindset
  • Self-motivated and a quick learner
  • Highly adaptable with a “can-do” attitude
  • A driving license is essential based on the nature of the position

This may include selecting, evaluating and recruiting candidates for roles or positions that differ from the above job description, but for which we believe that you may be interested in or appropriate for.
We look forward to receiving your application and regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.

“How am I going to sell power tools? I’ve never drilled a hole in my life! That’s what I thought when I first joined Hilti, but it’s really not like that. It’s about nurturing your strengths and being rewarded for hard work.”

- James, Customer service representative (sales)
