What's the role?
The commercial construction market in Ireland is thriving! At Hilti Ireland, we are growing, we have had over 20 promotions so far in 2021 with no signs of slowing down. To support the growth of this thriving sector we are searching for Ireland’s best Account Managers to join our dynamic, busy and supportive team.
The Hilti Account Manager role is highly consultative, proactive and opportunity focused. For us, it’s not about coverage with as many customers as possible, it’s about having meaningful interactions with a smaller amount of our existing customers to support their productivity and effectiveness using Hilti’s high-level products, solutions and innovation. The Account Manager role is highly collaborative, you will work closely with teammates and other departments to ensure an optimum level of customer experience with a strategic customer development approach.
We don’t expect you to be construction or account management expert. For us, it’s about the right person; the right person is passionate, curious, dedicated and a team player – our training will cover the rest!
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.
What does the role involve?
At Hilti, we work a little differently, this is not a typical account management role. We have a direct sales model which allows us to ensure a high-level customer interaction at every encounter. We love our customers! The Account Management role is strategic account development focused, partnering with existing customers providing solutions to optimise their current product basket. This is no ordinary sales or business development manager job; we don't believe in a hard sell because our strong core values allow us to focus purely on building long-term sustainable relationships with our customers.
The Account Management role is very autonomous, your red Hilti van will be your office and you will plan, organise and prioritise your time to ensure effectiveness within your territory. Hilti will put their trust in you, giving you plenty of responsibility, and freedom to grow and develop. What we want in return is someone who will go the extra mile, someone who will embrace change, and someone with the talent to move the business forward in their territory.
What do we offer?
At Hilti, it’s all about teamwork. We have an award-winning culture that is highly diverse and inclusive. We love to celebrate success and as part of the Hilti family you will be proud to work for an industry leading innovator. We promote over 80% of roles internally at Hilti, and as you grow you will be given opportunities to move around the business – to work abroad, experience different job functions and tackle different markets.
Your new role will be rewarding and challenging, and you will be given the support of your leader, your peers and Hilti to ensure you succeed. Within your first 3 months you will have 4 weeks (non-consecutive) training from our state-of-the-art hub in Manchester. This will include training on the Hilti approach, process and product training. The training doesn’t stop there! We have huge amounts of training available to continually grow and develop (including modules created in partnership with Ivy League Universities).
You will also enjoy:
→ A fully maintained van, with fuel card and toll pass
→ 25 days holidays (not including bank holidays)
→ Competitive remuneration with huge bonus potential
→ Health insurance, pension
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people and some of our best account managers joined us with no experience. So, if you’ve never worked in sales or construction, that’s fine with us. Success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background.
What you need is:
- Curiosity; listening to hear with customers to provide aligned solutions
- Drive; a motivated approach to achieving success
- Collaborative approach; you work great as part of a team to uncover creative solutions
- More curiosity; you love to learn, develop and grow
- Full working rights in Ireland
