Account Manager

Wellington
Reference No: 4357055

What's the role?

Hilti New Zealand is currently seeking a real go getter, keen on growing a sales territory within Wellington and maximizing the opportunity the current Construction climate has to offer. The ideal individual will have an entrepreneurial spirit and be hungry to succeed, taking their earning potential into their own hands.
This is no ordinary sales job, we are after a high performing dynamic sales person to join our team. If you are a recent graduate or a sales professional, we want to hear from you!

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 a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service. With some 24,000 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. In New Zealand we currently have 95 highly trained team members across multiple disciplines.

What does the role involve?

As an account manager, you'll be out and about visiting new or hunting down potential 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.
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 advising on 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 has consistantly been a best employer

What do we offer?

We'll give you everything you need to excel in your role, including your own ute full of tools and one-to-one coaching. You'll enjoy a rare combination of 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 trades 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 Area Sales Manager, who will also be there to help you manage your career.

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:

  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • Commitment, courage and competitive drive
  • A thirst to learn and challenge yourself
  • Degree or trade cert beneficial
  • Sales/Customer service/retail experience desirable

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