About the company
Hilti is a global leader in providing technology-leading products, systems and services to the worldwide construction industry. Our success is driven by distinction, defying convention and powering some of the world’s most ambitious feats of engineering for our customers.
About the role
As a Sales Specialist, no two days are the same but you’ll spend most of your time visiting our customers, wherever they’re busy working, to find out how we can help them. You could find yourself on construction sites or in offices and warehouses. You need to be happy to get your hands dirty but also be able to adapt your approach to the customer in front of you – it could be a senior management team one day and a sole trader the next.
Ours is a model of professional consultative selling, and it’s a really hands-on job. It means rolling up your sleeves to demonstrate some of the most pioneering products in the industry, along with all the services and after-care that come with the Hilti name. Far from traditional cold calling, it’s about nurturing relationships and developing contacts on site with warm customers and helping them find the most innovative and cost-efficient solutions for their needs.
You’ll be managing your own time – your van is your office and you’ll be responsible for setting your own diary to ensure you’re visiting your customers when they need you so you need to be a self-starter who is comfortable working autonomously. You’ll be part of a supportive, field-based regional team who are only a phone call away but you’ll be working by yourself on the whole, so you need to be comfortable with building relationships remotely and motivating yourself.
We’ll teach you everything you need to know about our products, the IT systems you’ll use on the job and advanced sales skills – you just need to be motivated to learn.
- Customer-facing experience gained in any industry (sales experience preferred but not essential), or a degree in any discipline and a desire to build a career in sales
- Experience in Firestop or Fire Protection sales
- Mature, assertive and committed to your career development with good communication skills
- Ability to demonstrate that you’re a flexible team player with a hunger to learn
- Legal right to work in the UK
- Full, clean, manual driving license valid in the UK
