What you need is:

  • Degree in Structural, Mechanical or Civil Engineering

If you need any support with your application please contact gbcareers@hilti.com.

Once you're in the formal process, there are three stages – a first interview with a Engineering Manager, a day-in-the-life 'field ride' to give you a real feel for the job and a final interview with the Head of Engineering. We'll also pay your expenses if you have to travel to meet us.

If we don't have a suitable role for you at the moment, we will keep you in our talent pool for the future so your recruitment process might take a bit longer but we'll be sure to stay in touch.

“How am I going to sell power tools? I’ve never drilled a hole in my life! That’s what I thought when I first joined Hilti, but it’s really not like that. It’s about nurturing your strengths and being rewarded for hard work.”

- James, Customer service representative (sales)
