Leading solar firm renew their talent with specialist exec search
As the landscape changes for the solar energy sector, M3 Solutions has set Hyperion Executive Search the task of tapping into the talent pool to strengthen their position in the commercial solar and LED Lighting sector.
Hyperion Executive Search, a search firm that works solely within the renewable energy and clean-tech sector, have been retained to work exclusively on finding the ideal candidates for three new roles for M3 Solutions, a leading installer of solar PV systems and low-energy LED lighting.
After having already successfully found and brought on-board outstanding candidates for general managers North and South and two key technical roles, M3 Solutions have now set Hyperion Executive Search the task of finding someone to lead their LED lighting division. They are also recruiting a new layer of graduate calibre sales people, equipped to sell solar solutions in a post-FIT environment.
By strengthening their core team through Hyperion Executive Search, M3 Solutions is looking to keep moving forward throughout the upcoming challenges facing the sector. The company see a clear opportunity for the synchronisation of their solar, lighting and office-fit out divisions.
David Hunt, managing partner at Hyperion, said:
“We all know that the industry in the UK is facing tough times, as subsidies become scarce and policies inhibit the way forward. M3’s answer to overcome these difficulties is by adding key talent; filling positions of responsibility with forward-thinking candidates, and we’re grateful that they’ve chosen us to find the right people again.
“There’s a lot of great talent out there, but in such a rapidly changing industry it can be difficult to find someone who’s skilled and exactly the right cultural fit for your firm. Hyperion Executive Search work closely with our clients to clearly define the job description, before drawing upon our extensive network to find the right person.
“We understand what our clients need, we know the right interview questions to ask and, most importantly, we know true applicable talent when we see it.”
Shaun Beattie, director of M3 Solutions, said:
“Hyperion has always provided my business with first class service. They were able to fill a vacancy that we had struggled with for over 12 weeks in less than three; keeping me updated throughout the entire process and offering valuable opinions and insight. Our relationship has grown from there.
“We see a clear future for commercial scale Solar PV despite recent policy changes, building on our continued successes and reputation. Strengthening our LED lighting capabilities means we can provide a greater range of solutions, offering clients a strong ROI on both solar and lighting or combined systems.”
“We understand the need for stability in such a shifting industry, and we work hard to find dedicated team members and trusted partners, not just employees. We’re looking forward to seeing M3 Solutions continue to expand over the next year with their new team.”
Hyperion Executive Search was set up by David, following on from eight years of experience within the renewables industry itself, building upon his international network and thorough knowledge of the sector.
Although the organisation works across the entire spectrum of the renewable energy industry, they have recently been placing emphasis on solar PV and energy storage, the new technological frontier.
