Sales Specialist - Government
What’s the role?
We’re looking for sales professionals from a Government background in Southampton / Portsmouth to join our regional sales team! This is no ordinary sales job, as ours is a uniquely high-performing and supportive work culture
Who are 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 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 Sales Specialist, you’ll be out visiting our customers, wherever they’re busy working, to find out how we can help them. You could find yourself on military sites or dealing with the local authorities, NHS and other Government clients - so no day will be the same!
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, while selling our state-of-the-art software along with all the services and after-care that come with the Hilti name. Far from traditional cold calling, it’s about nurturing relationships with warm and responsive customers, and helping them find the most innovative and cost-efficient solutions for their needs.
"Hilti Great Britain is proud to rank in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to work for 2016 and as a group have won 25 top employer awards in 2015, among them ranking in the world’s greatest places to work!"
What do we offer?
We'll give you everything you need to excel in your role, including your own van full of tools and one-to-one coaching. You'll enjoy a rare combination of both autonomy and camaraderie, as you'll manage your own diary while being part of a friendly team.
We'll give you lots of responsibility, including your own portfolio of customers, and these might be trade experts, project managers or company leaders. 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 unrivalled training, development and career opportunities as soon as you're ready for the next challenge.
Day to day you'll report to your regional head of sales, who will also be there to manage your career.
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people - success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability.
What you need is:
- University Degree or equivalent preferred (though not essential)
- Relevant functional experience and commercial knowledge in order to interact with internal and external customers. Strong emotional intelligence and business acumen. You will ideally have experience working directly within the Government sector- although strong field sales candidates with the drive to succeed will also be considered!
- Ability to manage time, multi-task and prioritize effectively.
- Results oriented and pro-active -a consistent overachiever of goals and objectives.
- Ideally living in or willing to relocate to Southampton / Portsmouth
As part of the process, we’ll take you on a "day in the life field ride" to give you a feel for the job and the caliber of our people.
We look forward to speaking with you!
