Field Engineer

Essex
Reference No: 17616

What's the role?

As a Field Engineer, you will be working across the North East London area, providing technical input and support to customers in this region. You'll be working closely with our sales team to maximise sales opportunities and win key applications with these customers.

Who is Hilti?

Unless you work in construction, you probably haven't heard of us. We're a hidden gem.

We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the professional construction sector. Our customers are loyal and enthusiastic about us. So are our people.

We regularly win Great Place to Work awards globally and have been on the Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For list in the UK for the past 13 years – we are proud to have been voted #35 in 2019.

Hilti offers the best of both worlds – friendly teams locally and roles across the UK combined with the opportunities only a company of 30,000 people spread across 120 countries can bring.

What does the role involve?

In the role of Field Engineer you will provide engineering support and coverage to both consulting engineers and focused customers, to secure specifications and provide a valuable engineering service. No two days will be the same - you'll could be working on-site one day and then working with the office technical team the next.
You will also provide technical support and training to the company’s personnel and customers to ensure the delivery of a high quality engineering support service at all times.
You'll need top plan and prioritise your day to ensure optimum use of time and cost, so good organisational skills will be required.

We were proud to be voted #35 in the Times Top 100 Best Companies To Work For in 2019 - our 13th consecutive year in the list.

What do we offer?

We really value our people and we've worked hard to develop a competitive reward package that reflects this. Some of the benefits we offer include:

*Genuine career advancement (more than 80% of all leadership roles are filled internally)
*Competitive salary and above-average performance bonus
*6% employer pension contributions
*Private Health Insurance and Employee Assistance Programme
*33 days' holiday (inc. Bank Holidays) plus the ability to purchase 5 days more annually
*Paid leave to work on charitable projects
*Hilti Benefits Box, a reward platform offering a cycle to work scheme and shopping and lifestyle discounts/cashback

Why should you apply?

We have an excellent mix of people and some of our best account managers joined us with no experience. 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:

  • Degree in Structural or Mechanical Engineering
  • A good knowledge of the construction industry, and the design & construction process
  • Strong ability to network and develop business relationships with key internal and external stakeholders
  • Ability to communicate clearly and work effectively as part of a team

Whilst we still wish to invite applications for roles and will conduct first-round video interviewing, please note that due to the current situation we will not be holding a formal interview process for some weeks and we ask for your patience during this time. If you have been successful after initial screening you will be informed of our intention to interview you in due course.

“I love the fact that my job isn’t just technical. It involves planning and dealing with people too. The culture is brilliant. It’s challenging, yes, but it’s friendly and welcoming too. It’s all about teamwork, and your ideas are really taken on board.”

- Andreas, Head of Corporate Research and Technology
