Specification Engineer

What’s the role?

We’re looking for a customer-focused Specification Engineer in London to kick start their careers in a rewarding, high-performing, international company.

Who are Hilti?

If you’ve worked in engineering, you may well 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 23,000 people in more than 120 countries, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth as you learn, grow and carve-out your career.

What does the role involve?

As a Specification Engineer, you’ll be working with our customers, sales teams, contractors and designers to drive the sales of specific products.

You will maximise the sales potential of Hilti products and services through architectural specifications with selected customer groups - and will have the opportunity to work on exciting and ground breaking projects!

This involves educating key influencers on construction projects about the proper use, advantages and value of Hilti products, with a view to securing their specification in the designs. You’ll then communicate these product specs from design teams to sales teams, assigning account managers with their conversion into sales. It means visiting job sites to assess design problems - as well as opportunities - giving technical advice, solutions and support, and adding value through the use of Hilti products.

You will also work closely with our Field Engineers within the project management process - and will form a strong relationship with our Building Envelope team to help steer business opportunities.

Day to day, you’ll report to your Engineering manager who will help manage your career and long term aspirations

"Our tools are chosen for some of the world’s most exciting engineering 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 ongoing training and lots of responsibility from the start. In return for your exceptional performance and consistent results, you’ll receive one-to-one career mentoring, as well as exciting opportunities to move around the business.

Why should you apply?

We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. If you have two or more years’ experience in engineering or construction, it’ll be a big advantage (Especially if it’s experience within Architecture, Façade or Building Envelope!)

More importantly, you need:

  • A degree or equivalent experience in Civil, Structural or Architectural Engineering
  • Proven experience in specification sales to architects with a high level of knowledge of the design and construction process required
  • Relevant experience within the construction industry with strong business development and commercial skills
  • Enthusiastic, proactive and self-reliant person with effective communication and relationship building expertise
  • Ideally living or willing to relocate to London

If we’re impressed with your CV, we’ll invite you for an interview and introduce you to the team
