What's the role?
We are looking for customer-focused Specification Engineers to kick-start their careers in a rewarding, high-performing, multinational company.
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?
Our products are specified by Structural Consultants, Builders and other specialist Design and Engineering personnel. As a Specification Engineer, you will be working with our customers, sales teams, contractors and designers to drive the sales of specific products – and will have the opportunity to work on exciting and ground-breaking projects!
This involves building long-term relationships with specifiers to gain knowledge of specifications on projects and educating key influencers on construction projects about the proper use, advantages and value of Hilti products.
You’ll then communicate these product specifications 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 also involves keeping track of specifications in SAP system, communicating specifications and educating about Fastening Technology Manuals, technical literature, Design & Software through field visits and/or seminars. Conduct Technical seminars in specifier’s offices and at potential sites to develop both short & long-term business opportunities/leads for company.
Day to day, you’ll report to your Technical Manager who will help manage your career and long-term aspirations.
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:
- Bachelor/Master degree in Engineering, Civil, Structural Engineering preferred
- Minimum 3 years’ experience in civil consulting firms
- Proven commercial experience in direct/specification sales to Consultants with a high level of knowledge of the design and construction process in projects is highly preferred
- Professional Engineer designation is a plus
- Strong communication and influencing skills
- Due to the nature of the position, a driving license is required
