What are the top 3 positions in high demand for renewable energy recruitment?
“The top three positions we're seeing in high demand in the renewable energy space are Energy Analysts, Machine Learning and AI Experts, along with Transactional Attorneys. As the industry continues to evolve, we can expect to see new job positions emerge, but existing roles such as Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, and Electrical Engineers are going to grow tremendously, which makes this a truly exciting time to pursue a career in the renewable energy space.”
What is your best advice for hiring in the renewable energy space?
“I'd say it's essential to stay up to date on renewable energy legislation, both at the federal and the state level because it'll greatly impact the demand for clean energy sources, as well as the availability of funding and incentives for the renewable energy projects.
Those projects look like battery storage systems, wind farms, and solar farms. Keeping up with those changes to the legislation can help professionals make informed decisions and stay ahead of the curve as this industry just continues to progress rapidly.”
What common challenges are hiring managers facing in renewable energy recruitment?
“The renewable and clean energy space is still in its infancy. There are people who have been dabbling in it for a couple of decades, but there are very few experts in this field, and honestly, it's just going to take some time to build a strong candidate pool. This is where partnering with a recruiter, specializing in this space, can be incredibly beneficial for you moving forward.”
As we conclude our discussion with Alex, it's evident that renewable energy recruitment offers abundant opportunities for professionals and businesses alike. With positions like Energy Analysts, Machine Learning and AI Experts, and Transactional Attorneys in high demand, individuals can forge rewarding careers in this thriving industry.
