What's the role?

We are looking for a Senior Sales Account Manager to join our technical sales team in the UK. You will work within our specialist team within Building Envelope (Façade) trade, selling to and developing customers on relevant Hilti products.
This role covers Liverpool, Manchester and surrounding areas.

Our Specialist division work on major business areas relating to customers involving Government and Firestop, Building Envelope (Façade) and Rail across the UK.

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. This is no ordinary sales job, as ours is a uniquely high-performing and supportive working culture.

Who is Hilti?

Hilti is where innovation is improving productivity, safety and sustainability in the global construction industry, and beyond. Where strong customer relationships are creating products and solutions that are Making Construction Better. Where a passionate and inclusive global team of 34,000 employees across more than 120 countries is exploring possibilities, leveraging their potential, owning their personal development and growing lasting careers. Hilti Great Britain has been consistently recognised as a top employer for nearly two decades and is currently ranked in top 20 UK’s Best Workplaces by the Great Place to Work institute.

What does the role involve?

Ours is a model of professional consultative selling, and it’s a really hands-on job. It means rolling up your sleeves to demonstrate some of the most pioneering products in the industry, along with all the services and after-care that come with the Hilti name. Far from traditional cold calling, it’s about nurturing relationships and developing contacts on site with warm customers and helping them find the most innovative and cost-efficient solutions for their needs.

On a day-to-day basis, you can expect to:

  • Go out into the field to see our customers, ask them open questions to understand their needs and provide a tailor-made solution
  • Demonstrate our innovative products and state-of-the-art software to customers on-site
  • Further develop ‘focus’ customers by building relationships, as well as uncovering new business leads
  • Be responsible for the operational, organisational and strategic management of your sales area, fully utilizing the top-in-class CRM system, Salesforce

You’ll be managing your own time – your vehicle is your office and you’ll be responsible for setting your own diary to ensure you’re visiting your customers when they need you so you need to be a self-starter who is comfortable working autonomously. You’ll be part of a supportive, field-based regional team who are only a phone call away but you’ll be working by yourself on the whole, so you need to be comfortable with building relationships remotely and motivating yourself.

Being at Hilti means joining a community of 33,000 people, 127 different nationalities working together across 120 countries

What do we offer?

At Hilti we have a passionate and inclusive global team and a caring and performance-driven culture. This means you are part of something special – a place where you can grow, surrounded by colleagues who support you and safe in the knowledge your results will be recognised and rewarded.

In addition to a competitive base salary and uncapped bonus potential, we offer a comprehensive benefits package and other perks, including:

  • Extensive onboarding & training process and companywide events in Manchester
  • Incentives for best performers such as trips to places like New York City, Milan, and Miami
  • Minimum 10% salary increase after 2 consecutive years of high performance through our Star Development Programme
  • 33.5 days’ holiday (inc. Bank Holidays) with opportunity to buy additional days
  • Private healthcare, life insurance and wellbeing support
  • 6% pension contribution
  • Company vehicle and a fuel/charging card
  • Company laptop and mobile phone
  • £2,000 reward for referring a successful candidate to Hilti

What you need is:

  • Customer-facing/sales experience gained in any industry
  • Construction industry/ technical experience desirable but not essential
  • Solution-oriented approach – you have the ability to uncover customers’ pain points and needs in order to provide our best-suited solutions
  • You share our values – commitment, teamwork, courage and integrity
  • Resilience and adaptability – you will be comfortable to meet all levels of customer from a site operator to managing director
  • Drive – a motivated approach to achieving success and overcoming challenges
  • Curiosity – you have a passion to learn, develop and grow
  • Organizational skills – you are excellent at managing your time and priorities, and can easily work autonomously
  • A full, clean, manual UK driving license to visit our customers on site 5 days a week, Monday to Friday
  • Who should apply?

    We don’t expect you to be a construction or sales expert. For us, it’s about the right person – our training will cover the rest!

    Click through the 'Apply Now' button where you will be asked to upload your CV and answer a couple of short questions – the whole process should take around 90 seconds.
