STIHL helps people grow

STIHL stories

Read on to find out what our STIHL employees love about working for STIHL.

Reuben - Product Executive

There have been plenty of opportunities to learn and put forward my own ideas at STIHL. When I first started, the training period was very thorough, and overall the work has been varied enough for me to gain a range of different skills. I’ve been able to take on different roles and take on more responsibility since I first started as an intern which is exactly what I was after. 

So far at STIHL I’ve had the chance to be involved in TIMBERSPORTS® Championships, dealer shows, product roadshows, trips abroad and many other interesting and fun events. One of the best parts of STIHL is that we are always moving forward, with new products and projects to get stuck into. The support and friendly atmosphere is also a big part of why I like being here.  

My favourite STIHL product is the BGA 200 cordless blower as it’s a dream to use. When the carrying system is fitted and cruise control is on, it’s hard to imagine how it could be topped!

Matt - Warehouse Team Leader

At STIHL GB, I have been given the freedom to forge my own career path and the company has been by my side to share in the successes and support me when things haven’t gone to plan.  

What I love about STIHL is their commitment to tradition and family values while also embracing social and industrial change; promoting inclusivity and diversity, bringing new, environmentally conscious products to the market and constantly innovating to improve.  

Working for STIHL is like being part of a family. You are given the freedom to be yourself, you are supported and strengths are nurtured. There is no such thing as a weakness, only development opportunities where you are given the tools to be yourself better.  

My favourite STIHL product is the MS 500i chainsaw because we were the first company to market a fuel-injection chainsaw, a demonstration of the innovation that STIHL is committed to.

Amanda - Retail and Sales Trainer

Working at STIHL GB has allowed me to develop my creativity within the Learning & Development team. Being allowed to work in a creative workplace gives me the ability to come up with unique solutions to challenges instead of simply being told what to do. I’m encouraged to offer up ideas to improve processes and help make the business more efficient. This makes my job fulfilling and satisfying.  

I love that STIHL is a globally recognised brand and wherever I go, people will consistently tell me of their love for STIHL products. The fact that people trust in the brand, recognise the products as high quality and love that STIHL is family-owned, means that I have a genuine passion for working at STIHL which I also see in my colleagues. In fact when I joined STIHL it was immediately evident that everyone had a real passion for the company. This means a lot to me as many of the company values are also my own personal ones. 

My favourite STIHL product is the FSA 45 cordless grass trimmer. I love the flexiblity of this product and how easy it is to use. When I train customers on this particular product they are always impressed by how you can use pre-cut mowing line or the polycut blades that come with it and also that it can also be used for edging as well as mowing. It’s extendable and lightweight and well ... I could go on... I just love it!
