With some 29,000 people in more than 120 countries, which we’re looking to expand, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow your career.
What does the role involve?
Your goal is to sustain our strong growth with Direct Fastening tools and consumables. You take over part of the operational and strategical responsibility for an entire portfolio of Hilti Direct Fastening products, like a real Product Manager. You will work closely with our experts to identify the critical success factors to drive the business and define what needs to be done using the strategy tool-box of a Global Product Manager. Customer- and market analysis, portfolio performance reporting, competitive benchmark analysis and marketing communication are some of the tools in the tool-box you will be using. You will also support our Global Product Manager team to conduct marketing activities, prepare upper management presentations and drive our digital business.
You will be part of a young and dynamic team that will support you through-out your learning experience in the shoes of a Global Product Manager.
What do we offer?
We’ll give you the tools you need to excel in your internship, including one-to-one coaching. You’ll enjoy a rare combination of autonomy and camaraderie, as you’ll manage your own project while being part of a friendly team.
You’ll not just be another pair of hands but a fully integrated team member with lots of self-responsibility. From there, we’ll trust you to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding results. Go the extra mile and we’ll reward you with strategic development discussions and career opportunities.
We’ll support you even before you start with us through relocation and integration support. With the international interns community at Hilti you’ll never be bored. Further, the snow-draped mountains, crystal-clear lakes and marvelous landscapes in the Happy Valley invite for lots of outdoor activities.
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team.
