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 will be part of the lean team with a high focus on the implementation of projects regarding operational excellence in the manufacturing area and indirect functions.
Your key responsibility will be to run/support optimization workshops across all functions of the plant and to support lean activities on a day-to-day basis. Working on strategic deployments of global standards as well as conducting tactical kaizen workshops will allow you to gain a good understanding of our operational excellence journey.
What do we offer?
We’ll give you the tools you need to excel in your internship, including one-to-one coaching. We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. 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, crystalclear lakes and marvelous landscapes in the Happy Valley invite for lots of outdoor activities.
