Rail Account Manager- West Midlands
What's the role?
We’re looking for a Sales Specialist to join our regional rail sales team in the West Midlands! But this is no ordinary sales job, as ours is a uniquely high-performing and supportive working culture.
Who is 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, which we’re looking to expand, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow your career.
What does the role involve?
As a Rail Sales Specialist, you’ll be out and about visiting our customers, wherever they’re busy working, to find out how we can help them. You will proactively grow the profitable sales of Hilti solutions to a defined portfolio of accounts within the rail sector through promoting additional services and value engineered solutions in the UK.
You will work with key decision makers within the rail sector such as Network Rail and their sub-contractor supply chain to secure specifications, technical approvals and recommendations for Hilti products.
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.
