Employer: Hilti North America

Expires: 12/16/2017

What’s the role?

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 rotational program like no
other, with
real responsibility from day one.

 

Who is Hilti?

We
provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global
construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a
worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service. With
23,000 people in more than 120 countries (3,000 here in North America), we’re a
great place for you to show us your worth as you learn, grow and carve-out your
career.

 

What does the role involve?

Hilti Outperformer is a two-year rotational program,
where you’ll quickly be involved in a range of projects, with lots of exposure
to senior management. It’s fast paced and challenging, but we’ll closely coach
and mentor you. The program is split into four main stages of work:

 

·        
12 months as a field engineer in the United
States.

·        
3 months on an operational project at
the national headquarters that fits your skills.

·        
6 months on a strategic project at the
national/regional headquarters.

·        
3 months on an international
project. If you’ve come from a mature market, you’ll likely work in an emerging
market, and vice versa.

 

What do we offer?

Show
us what you can do and, in return, you could have the experience of a lifetime,
the opportunity to work internationally, and a fast-track career
in global senior management with an unlimited contract. You’ll also take part in some
fascinating courses and events:

 

·        
Leadership development
program – a
comprehensive learning journey with IMD business school in Lausanne,
Switzerland, with a certificate from IMD.

·        
Business management training

individual training at Hilti. A focus on behavioral profiles, personal
strengths, leadership styles and communication skills.  

·        
Global summit – 4-5 days at our global headquarters in Liechtenstein. A look at the way
global business units function, plus soft skills like situational leadership
and international teamwork.

·        
Social project – 7-8 days ‘building a better
future’. A hands-on and hugely impactful community project, like our recent
house building for displaced refugees in Bosnia.

 

Why should you apply?

Ours
is a high-performing culture for very driven people. If you’ve never worked in
sales or construction, that’s not a problem. Success at Hilti is down to
teamwork and ability, no matter what your background.

 

We’d
love to hear from you if:

·        
You’ve recently graduated, or you’re preparing to graduate, with a
master’s degree or PhD. Your degree is likely to be in engineering (mechanical,
civil or structural engineering preferred).

You’ve spent at least
three months, and up to two years, in a professional environment, like an
internship, apprenticeship or work experience, or have just started your
career and want an opportunity where you can perform well and progress.
You’re multilingual, fluent
in English plus another language or two.
You’ve gained
international experience during work or studies abroad.
You’re mature and
assertive, curious and committed. You’re a flexible team player with good
communication and social skills. You’re a global thinker, interested in
general management topics, keen for intercultural experiences and
opportunities working abroad.
