What's the role
We’re looking for an Account Manager to join our team in the Metropolitan area.
You will have the opportunity to work on some of the Finland’s biggest construction projects whilst at the same time receiving world-class training and development to take your career to the next level. In this role you are responsible for developing the accounts and sales in your own territory.
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 solutions that build a better future. Where there is pride and a sense of belonging across our 120 locations, carrying right into our lives and homes. Where people are exploring possibilities, leveraging their potential, owning their personal development and growing lasting careers.
What does the role involve?
As Account Manager, no two days are the same but you’ll spend most of your time visiting our customers, wherever they’re busy working, to find out how we can help them. You could find yourself on construction sites or in offices and warehouses. You need to be happy to get your hands dirty but also be able to adapt your approach to the customer in front of you – it could be a senior management team one day and a sole trader the next.
Our sales is a model of professional consultative selling, and it’s a 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.
You’ll be managing your own time – your car is your office and you’ll be responsible for setting your own diary to ensure you’re visiting your customers when they need you. 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.
Hilti has been rated the 4th Greatest Place to Work in Europe and the 8th Greatest Place to Work in the world in 2022.
As per the Great Place to Work employee opinion survey 2022 89% of our employees consider our company as a total a great place to work.
What do we offer?
You’ll get into Hilti's excellent corporate culture. With us personal growth, professional growth and company growth go hand in hand. We develop, challenge and encourage our people to develop themselves and provide only the best possible service to our loyal customers.
You’ll get a company car and all the needed equipment. We provide continuous training and a lot of responsibility from the very beginning.
We will give you all the tools you need to succeed in the tasks.
The onboarding period contains i.e.:
WIN Basic training, duration 4 one-week periods from which 2 weeks will be held in Manchester

Why should apply?
We have an excellent mix of people and some of our best employees joined us with no previous experience from construction industry.
