Who is Hilti?

If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. 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 30,000 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?

As intern in our department you’ll be part of Global Lean Team. You’ll work closely with our Lean Managers and experts to develop the next steps on our Hilti Lean-Journey towards the global business excellence.

Your key responsibilities will be to develop learning materials with a learner-centric approach for current and new Lean-topics and make it available for the global community. Create marketing and communication materials and transform the message creatively to the visuals attractive and user-friendly for everybody. Support international projects and initiatives and help to organize global workshops like Kaizen workshops and events like Lean exchange or Lean summit. You will interact with Managers across different hierarchical levels and be involved in the decision-making discussions.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION: 12 team members, 9 nationalities across all seniority levels - our team is a perfect opportunity for you to get a global exposure not only within the team but across all our stakeholders.

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. So, if you have no knowledge of construction, that’s fine with us. We’re more interested in your ability, commitment and drive to succeed.

  • Bachelor or Master student with an engineering or management background
  • Ideally previous touch point with Lean (university or work experience)
  • Talent to structure and analyse data and problems
  • Strong communication skills, with excellent English and interpersonal skills
  • A proactive approach and self-reliant personality

We take our time to get to know you. As part of your recruitment process, you’ll get to talk to your internship coach as well as your HR Manager who both can answer some of your burning questions.
