We’re looking for the next generation of high-performing, multi-lingual, post-graduate talents to take our company forward.
Hilti Outperformer is a global management development program like no other, with real responsibility from day one.
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. Hilti is very proud to be ranked as the UK's 12th best large organisation to work for in the Great Place to Work survey.
What does the role involve?
Hilti Outperformer is a two-year program, where you’ll quickly be involved in a range of international projects, with lots of exposure to senior management. It’s fast paced and testing, but we’ll closely coach and mentor you. The program is split into three main stages of work:
12 months as an Account Manager in Great Britain.
6 months intense training and learning in finance and accounting functions in both the GB teams and in the Northern European Hub, based in Manchester, GB.
6 months on a strategic financial project outside the region. If you’ve come from a mature market, you’ll work in an emerging market, and vice versa.
We want your thirst to learn, courage to challenge and desire to improve things, including yourself.
Once again Hilti has been awarded as a Great Place to Work®. We are proud to rank 8th in Best Workplaces in the World!
