Account Manager - (Auckland, Wellington and Regional Locations)

Auckland, Wellington and Regional Locations
Reference No: 22204

What's the role?

To support the continued growth of the civil and construction sector, we are constantly looking for experienced, customer focused Account Managers to join our sales team throughout New Zealand. The ideal individual will be highly driven with a need to succeed.

Who is Hilti?

Hilti provides leading-edge power tools, technologies, software and services for the construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years with head offices in Germany, Switzerland and Singapore. We have a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and first-rate service.

What does the role involve?

At Hilti, we work a little differently. We have a direct sales model which allows us to ensure a high-level customer interaction at every encounter. We love our customers! Far from traditional cold calling, it’s about nurturing relationships and developing contacts on site with customers and helping them find the most innovative and cost-efficient solutions for their needs. It means rolling up your sleeves to demonstrate some of the most innovative products in the industry, along with all the services and after-care that come with the Hilti name to ensure that Hilti’s product basket is optimised.

You could find yourself on construction sites or in offices and warehouses. You need to be happy to get your hands dirty but also be able to adapt your approach to the customer in front of you – it could be a senior management team one day and a sole trader the next.

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. You’ll be part of a supportive, field-based team who are only a phone call away, but you’ll be working by yourself, so you need to be comfortable with building relationships remotely and motivating yourself.

In New Zealand we have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. With over 30 nationalities in our New Zealand offices alone, success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background. Keeping in mind our core family values and customer orientation we never discriminate.

What do we offer?

Show us what you’re made of and we’ll offer you opportunities to move around the business – to work abroad, experience different job functions and tackle different markets.

Why should you apply?

This is no ordinary sales job, as ours is uniquely high performing with a supportive working culture. It’s a great way to find the right match for your ambitions and achieve the exciting career you’re after.

What you need is:

  • Strong Civil/ Engineering or Construction acumen
  • A customer centric approach and a passion for customer excellence.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Commitment, courage and competitive drive.
  • A thirst to learn and challenge yourself.
  • Bachelor's Degree preferred, but not essential.
  • Previous Sales/Customer service/retail experience desirable.
  • Full working rights in New Zealand.
  • Current New Zealand Drivers license.
