What's the role?

The Hilti Global Fellowship Program (also known as the Martin Hilti Foundation Internship) offers globally-minded, German-language-proficient early career professionals the opportunity to build their qualifications through an immersive international work experience.

The 12-month fellowship is based at Hilti’s Global Headquarters in Schaan, Liechtenstein and will focus in developing professionally within one of our corporate functions, though no formal related work experience or previous internship is required.

At Hilti’s Global Headquarters in Liechtenstein, Fellows can strengthen their German language skills, learn to collaborate across nationalities and corporate functions, and learn valuable professional skills. Fellows will also gain a strong understanding of Hilti’s business and the construction industry, which will be valuable as they pursue future opportunities.

The Hilti Foundation is committed to helping people around the world become economically independent through their own efforts, allowing them to lead better, self-determined lives.
