What's the role?
We’re looking for customer-focused field engineers to kick start their careers in a rewarding, high-performing, international company and join our team at Hilti BeLux.
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 some 28,000 people in more than 120 countries, 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?
As a field engineer, you’ll be working with our customers, sales teams, contractors and designers to drive the sales of specific products.
This involves educating key influencers on construction projects about the proper use, advantages and value of Hilti products, with a view to securing their specification in the designs. You’ll then communicate these product specs from design teams to sales teams, assigning account managers with their conversion into sales. It means visiting job sites to assess design problems - as well as opportunities - giving technical advice, solutions and support, and adding value through the use of Hilti products.
It also means looking into new business prospects by running customer surveys for product development, and working with sales teams to develop local strategies.
Day to day, you’ll report to your Field Engineer Manager, who will also be there to help guide you in your career.
What do we offer?
Show us what you’re made of and we’ll offer you opportunities to move around the business – to work abroad, experience different job functions and tackle different markets. It’s a great way to find the right match for your ambitions and achieve the exciting career you’re after.
We have a very thorough people review process, unlike any we know of in any other business. We screen everyone in the company in a yearly career performance matching process. It means we can pair talent with opportunities - developing our people in their current roles or challenging them to work in new ways or in new places. It’s how we find the right fit and further our teams personally and professionally.
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people and some of our best account managers joined us with no experience of the construction industry. So, if you’ve never worked in sales or construction, that’s fine with us. Success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background.
What you need is:
- At least a bachelor’s degree, ideally in civil engineering
- You can look back on a first experience within the construction industry
- An agile approach to solving problems
- Good knowledge about AutoCad/Revit
- Knowledge about BIM is big plus
- Strong communication and interpersonal skills
- Enthusiasm to learn and drive to succeed
