Intern - Corporate Sustainability (m/f/x)

What's the role?

Hilti is committed to becoming a leader in sustainability within the construction industry. Join us on this exciting journey! As an intern, you’ll actively contribute to our sustainability team by working on projects and assisting with the development and implementation of various aspects of our sustainable strategy. Your role will help shape the mindset across our international network. 

Start date is flexible to the student's availability, duration for minimum 6 months.

Who is Hilti?

For the sixth time in the past 11 years, Hilti has been named one of the best employers by Great Place to Work.

What began as a family business in 1941, founded by brothers Eugene and Martin Hilti, has become a leading industry player with over 120 locations worldwide and a workforce of more than 32,000 colleagues. Our incredible journey, from humble beginnings to a global powerhouse, is a shining example of the rewards of a hard-working and dedicated team.

At Hilti, we provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software, and services for the global construction industry and beyond. Our purpose is making construction better based on a passionate and inclusive global team and a caring and performance-oriented culture.

We invest a substantial amount of our annual profit to the Hilti Foundation, which focuses on initiatives that empower people to live independently and autonomously, contribute to building stronger societies, and create networks of competent partners to achieve sustainable and scalable impact.

What does the role involve?

At Hilti, we provide diverse internship opportunities in our sustainability team, tailored to your academic and professional background:

With an environmental or technical background , you will help us to achieve our CO2-reduction goals, support us in our Circularity initiatives, gather information for certifications, work on energy-efficiency initiatives or the improvement of our buildings. 

Following your studies in marketing & communication or business administration , you will support the team with sustainability or circularity initiatives focused on our offering for customers or work on regulations. Other internship areas could be within communication, tool donation and our corporate volunteering program “Engaged Beyond Business.”

If IT or data management is your background, you will support us on data and reporting projects, focusing on the corporate perspective or the product view. 

You will work in a highly motivated team and will be in charge of your own projects. This includes independent alignments with stakeholders within the organization, structuring and processing contents as well as bringing forth and implementing improvement processes. You’ll work closely with our experts to develop our way to drive sustainability at Hilti.

Clara, Intern Corporate Sustainability: “Right at the beginning of my internship, I was warmly welcomed by the team and was directly assigned my own project. I was not only able to work independently on a task but at the same time I had the opportunity to contribute to team projects. This approach allowed me to sharpen my project-management, communication, and critical-thinking skills from the beginning on. Through the regular exchange in the team, I broadened my understanding of sustainability and acquired valuable insights for navigating a dynamic work environment.”

What do we offer?

Joining more than 2100 colleagues from over 70 nationalities at one of our headquarters locations in Schaan, Nendeln, or Buchs is more than a career move. It’s your opportunity to enjoy the energizing, alpine lifestyle - where Liechtenstein, Austria, and Switzerland seamlessly meet.

Share your interests and become a part of one of our employee groups leading change locally, for example, supporting female empowerment or the LGBTQ+ community or joining a leisure group for a Wednesday mountain bike ride or tennis match. If you are passionate about giving back to the community, we have various opportunities to volunteer through our engaged beyond business program locally and internationally.

Additional benefits of our headquarters location include shared e-bikes for your commute, an on-site gym, three restaurants, language courses, learning and development training opportunities, tax insurance, financial guidance, child care, relocation and spousal support, and more.

What you need is:

  • Enrollment in a relevant Bachelor/Master’s program for the entire internship period
  • Passion for sustainability topics
  • Great communication and project management skills
  • Independent and well-structured work style
  • Good communication skills in English

Why should you apply?

We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. So, if you have no knowledge of construction, that’s fine with us. We’re more interested in your ability, commitment and drive to succeed.


Hilti is an equal opportunity employer.

We take our time to get to know you. As part of your recruitment process, you’ll get to talk to your internship coach as well as your HR Manager who both can answer some of your burning questions
