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 an intern in our department, you will be part of a young and competent team, which has a high focus on the smooth operation of logistics processes in manufacturing.

Your key responsibilities will be to support the production logistics team by running continuous improvement projects. This may e.g. include the creation of a container tracking tool, the automation of reports, the implementation of label printing at one of our external partners or the analysis of value streams for specific product families. With the upcoming implementation of SAP MES, you might also have the chance to join us on our digitalization journey in manufacturing.

The Manufacturing Logistics Department plays a key role in ensuring a high product availability to our customers while at the same time attaining smooth and cost-efficient operations.

What do we offer?

We will give you the tools you need to excel in your internship, including one-to-one coaching. You will enjoy a rare combination of autonomy and camaraderie, as you’ll manage your own project while being part of a friendly team.

You will not just be another pair of hands but a fully integrated team member with lots of self-responsibility. From there, we trust you to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding results. Go the extra mile and we will reward you with strategic development discussions and career opportunities.

With the international interns community at Hilti, you will never be bored. Furthermore, 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 productive team. If you have no knowledge of construction, that’s fine with us. We are more interested in your ability, commitment and drive to succeed.

What you need is:

  • Currently studying in a Bachelor or Master’s program focusing on business administration, logistics / supply chain or business engineering
  • Affinity to conceptional and project work; prior experience in consulting or industry is a plus
  • Strong analytical and computer skills including MS Office
  • Fluency in German and English
  • High commitment and self-responsibility

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.

Hilti is an equal opportunity employer.
