Specification Engineer (Civil)
What's the role?
We’re looking for customer-focused engineers to kick start their careers in a rewarding, high-performing, international 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 some 29,000 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 a specification engineer, you'll be working with our customers, sales teams, contractors and designers to drive the sales of specified products.
This involves driving engagement of specifiers with Hilti differentiated engineering products and services through dedicated engineering planning and execution. You will build up trust with your assigned accounts by educating key decision makers on the latest codes and engineering topics on fastening and fire protection, and assist them on the adoption of proper design methods, master specifications, and use of the right Hilti products in projects with full compliance to local and international codes and standards. You will also ensure a smooth project delivery by channelling specification details to respective account managers to ensure full and timely Hilti specification conversions to meet project delivery timeline.
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:
- A bachelor's degree in engineering, ideally in civil engineering
- An agile approach to solving problems
- Strong communication skills
- Enthusiasm to learn and drive to succeed
- Due to the nature of the position, a valid driving license is essential
