What's the role?
We’re looking for talented people who combine a Masters or MBA education with sales experience in an international environment to accelerate their career with us, demonstrating excellent results and benefitting from the training and development to achieve a director-level position within 12 to 18 months.
You will have the opportunity to work on some of the UK’s biggest construction projects whilst at the same time receiving world-class training and development to take your career to the next level.
You need to be able to hit the ground running in a fast-paced, high-performing, international working culture.
Who is Hilti?
Unless you work in construction, you probably haven't heard of us. We're a hidden gem.
We provide cutting-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the professional construction sector. Our customers are loyal and enthusiastic about us. So are our people.
We regularly win Great Place to Work awards globally and are very proud to have been placed on the Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For list in the UK by our employees for the past 10 years.
Hilti offers the best of both worlds friendly teams locally and roles across the UK combined with the opportunities only a company of 30,000 people spread across 120 countries can bring.
What does the role involve?
Following substantial growth and investment in the past years, Hilti (Great Britain) Ltd. currently employs circa 1,000 employees, of which approximately 50% are in sales related positions.
You will learn the business as a Regional Manager, a commercial management position with a focus on operational and strategic business in your designated region, combined with people management.
As a Regional Manager, you’ll be expected to meet and exceed business targets, plus maximise profitable growth in your region.
This means partnering with our customers to understand their businesses, while developing loyal, win-win relationships. It also involves working with other management teams to capitalize on business potential across territories, and taking an active role in handling key accounts.
You’ll direct a team of 7-10 Account Managers, which calls for training, developing and motivating them, both individually and as a unit.
In fact, we’ll measure you as much on developing your team as on achieving your targets.
You will also benefit from dedicated mentoring from senior directors within the organisation and a bespoke career plan to allow you to reach your full potential in the organisation, whether that is in the UK or internationally
93% of our people say they’re proud to work for Hilti, thanks to the quality of our products and the way we look after our people.
What do we offer?
We really value our people and we've worked hard to develop a competitive reward package that reflects this. Some of the benefits we offer include :
Our Head Office is currently based next to Old Trafford but in early 2021 we will move to state of the art new premises at Circle Square in Central Manchester.
We will continue to offer free parking for employees and will be located a short walk from Oxford Rd train station and St Peter's Square tram stop.
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people and some of our best account managers joined us with no experience. So, if you’ve never worked in sales or construction, that’s fine with us.
Success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background.
