Intern or thesis student – Global Process Management for Product Innovation
What's the role?
Join our interdisciplinary team in Global Process Management for Product Portfolio Management at Hilti and contribute in defining the future of how we successfully bring service, software and hardware solutions to the market. Being part of a corporate function, your role is to drive our systematic innovation knowledge even further to boost our global innovation community. Internships in PPM are development positions – we don’t hire for a job. We hire for careers.
Start date is flexible to the student's availability, duration for 6 months
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 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?
As an intern in our department you will be part of a cross-organizational strategic project. You will work closely with our managers and experts to ensure a quick learning curve while giving you the freedom to act and show initiative.
Based on your specified assignment your key responsibilities will be to create your own network in the organization, collect information across business units (e.g. via interviews), support in workshop facilitation, build executive communication material and drive mindset change.
What do we offer?
We’ll give you the tools you need to excel in your internship, including selected trainings, coaching and mentoring. You’ll enjoy a rare combination of autonomy and team spirit, as you’ll manage your own tasks while being part of a high performing, global team.
You won’t 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.
What you need is:
- You are currently a Master student in engineering or business management – if you can prove having a mind for our business, we will consider other subjects like psychology or economics as well
- You have strong communication skills and you’re fluent in written and spoken English
- You've spent at least three months in a professional environment, like an internship, apprenticeship or work experience
- You have good Microsoft Office skills (PowerPoint, Word, Excel), SharePoint, JIRA and Confluence are a plus
- You're mature and assertive, curious and committed. You're a flexible team player with empathy, good communication and social skills
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.
