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 strategy department in Schaan (Liechtenstein). Help us to set the strategy for our plants in Liechtenstein, Germany, Mexico and China, implement it together with the plants and push overarching topics like 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 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?

In our strategy department, you will work on the discovery, discussion and shaping of strategic topics for the global manufacturing organization and you will learn how to work with modern project management approaches (like scrum). Immerging in the implementation of strategic initiatives, you will contribute to improve our agile innovation process, our smart factories, 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 the global plants. 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.

CAREER - 80% of our entry positions at Headquarters are filled with interns. It’s testament to how much we value, develop and look after our people.

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?

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 studying engineering management, mechanical engineering, production engineering, technology and innovation management or similar
  • You finished your 5th semester or more
  • You are self-motivated, responsible and strive to achieve something great
  • Your communicational skills are advanced and you are fluent in English
  • You have experience in MS Office, in particular Excel and Powerpoint
