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.

As intern in our department you’ll be part of a small diverse-profile strategic team that executes strategic sourcing programs with direct link to the Business unit strategy. You’ll work closely with our experts to develop a selected workstream of one of our strategic projects. In this role, you will also have significant exposure to the senior vice president who leads the area.

Your key responsibilities will be to perform industry and competitor analysis, to facilitate make or buy decisions and finally define strategic actions resulting from a comprehensive fact base.

We spend over one billion Swiss francs a year on indirect materials & services globally. Management attention is high and we seek to deliver above expectations.

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?

To succeed you need to have a broad, flexible profile. Conceptual brain work interests you as much as getting down and dirty in documents, spreadsheets and slide decks. Show us your analytical and strategic thinking as well as hands-on project management. You are adept at convincing others, leveraging your knowledge and communicating precisely.
