On our consumable portfolio you will develop, analyse and transform the results into strategic actions. Working in the strategic supply team of BU Direct Fastening, the candidate will have the opportunity to learn about statistical pricing analysis, our suppliers and strategic sourcing decision making.

The candidate will work and get exposure in a cross-functional environment, including the strategic supply team, plants and outposts across the globe. Additionally, the intern will obtain a great understanding of the supply chain system of a multinational company.

Start date is flexible to the student's availability, duration for at least 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 a master thesis student or intern in our department you will develop, analyse and transform the findings into strategic actions.

Your key responsibilities will be, for the specific material group or product family, to collect relevant data, understand its cost structure and cost drivers to serve as basis for the statistical model. After a deep analysis phase, it is expected that the candidate will implement the potential business case.

In Strategic Supply Management we define the setup of the global end to end supply chain for Hilti’s industry leading Direct Fastening products.

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 and more productive team. So, if you have no knowledge of construction -- that is fine with us. We’re more interested in your ability, commitment and drive to succeed.

What you need is:

  • Bachelor or (preferably) Masters student
  • Energy, courage and sharp thinking
  • A strategic approach and good problem-solving skills
  • Strong communication skills, with excellent English and interpersonal skills
  • Proficiency in MS Office
  • A proactive approach and self-reliant personality

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.
