What does the role involve?
As intern in our department you’ll be part of Hilti`s global inhouse-consultancy for Supply Management. You’ll work closely with our experts to develop the roadmap towards an inventory policy that is fully aligned with the risk situation.

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.
