Account Manager

Melbourne
Reference No: 10460

What's the role?

Construction in Melbourne is booming. Did you know in the past 6 months there have been almost 192 cranes operating in Melbourne? It's a steep increase compared to the other cities on the eastern sea board. We are experiencing exciting growth in the business to ensure we can give the best possible service to our customers and the industry. There is no better time to join us!

Who is Hilti?

We develop, manufacture and distribute state-of-the-art products, technologies, software and services to the construction industry. We can look back on 75 years of corporate experience and our ground-breaking products and exceptional service are known around the world. Hilti stands for innovation, quality and direct customer relations. With more than 28,000 employees in more than 120 countries, we offer you an impressive environment in which you can prove yourself, grow and shape your own career.

What does the role involve?

As an Account Manager you will work and expand a portfolio of existing accounts while building relationships with core customers. 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. We partner with our customers to understand their business needs and how our products can add value. This is why we stand out as the market leader.

Our tools are chosen for some of the world’s most exciting projects, like London’s Crossrail and Japan’s bullet train, as well as everyday buildings that make people’s lives better and safer.

What do we offer?

We’ll give you everything you need to excel in your role, including market leading training. At Hilti we pride ourselves on developing our people and as such, we will give you all the support you need to grow your career. We offer a flexible working culture as well as other great benefits including 5 weeks leave, a competitive commission structure, and a company vehicle.

Why should you apply?

We don't expect you to be a construction expert...but you will be once you've graduated from our award-winning training course. For this reason, we invite candidates from all industries to join our globally recognised team and begin a career where your development is always our number one priority! All we need from you is a great attitude and a customer centric approach to everything you do.

What you need is:

  • A methodical and driven approach to sales; with a sound ability to identify decision makers
  • Exceptional interpersonal skills and effective problem solving ability
  • Ambitious about your own development
  • Willingness to learn, passionate and driven
  • A real team player with an eye for detail

So do you have curiosity, learning agility and the passion for building a better future? Then what are you waiting for and hit apply.

“How am I going to sell power tools? I’ve never drilled a hole in my life! That’s what I thought when I first joined Hilti, but it’s really not like that. It’s about nurturing your strengths and being rewarded for hard work.”

- James, Customer service representative (sales)
