Intern or thesis student - Global Manufacturing Excellence
What's the role?
Are you interested to learn about leading a global manufacturing organization? We have an open position for an intern or thesis student in the manufacturing excellence team in Schaan (Liechtenstein). Help us to set the strategy for our plants worldwide, implement it together with the plants and push overarching topics like process innovation and industry 4.0. We offer you to write the master thesis in this topic or do an internship for 6 months or more. In doing so, you will make an important step forward to develop your personal career.
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?
In the manufacturing excellence team, you will work on the development, implementation and shaping of strategic topics and global processes for the global manufacturing organization. You will learn how to work with modern project management approaches like Scrum. Driving the implementation of strategic initiatives, you will contribute to improve our processes, our global production footprint and network, as well as our operational excellence initiative. With your communicational and organizational skills, you will help us to coordinate these activities globally. Your strategic thinking and your ability to create new concepts and ideas will help us to develop our strategic initiatives further.
You will work closely with international leaders and experts on a daily base. Additionally, you get the opportunity to write your master thesis within the context of your work.
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 intern’s 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.
What you need is:
- Bachelor's degree and currently studying in a master’s program with an economic or technical background
- You are self-motivated, responsible and strive to achieve something great
- Enthusiasm to learn and high commitment
- Excellent communication skills, with fluency in English and German
- Good Microsoft Office skills (Excel, Word, PowerPoint)
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.
