Hyperion Executive Search targets international growth as it marks first anniversary
Hyperion was set up a year ago by David Hunt with the aim of matching the sector’s most successful companies with the best talent.
Unlike the majority of recruiters working in the sector, Liverpool-based Hyperion only works in the renewables industry.
Before setting up Hyperion, Hunt was a director of a leading renewable energy installer. He is currently the chair of Onsite Renewables for the Renewable Energy Association (REA) and was previously a member of the Parliamentary Renewable and Sustainable Energy Group (PRASEG).
Hunt also previously worked extensively in the recruitment industry sourcing and placing candidates both nationally and internationally including Europe, Scandinavia, the Middle East and United States.
Hyperion acts for clients and candidates across a comprehensive range of renewable energy sub-sectors including solar PV, solar thermal, heat pumps, biomass, wind turbines and fuel cells.
Specific disciplines the firm recruits for include general and senior management, sales and business development, operations and logistics, marketing, finance and asset management, design and installation at a senior level.
Hunt said, “While there continue to be a number of uncertainties surrounding the renewables industry in the UK, there are exciting opportunities to increase our work on international assignments.
“There has been an upward trend in the amount of international work we are winning during the second half of our first year and we have a number of significant assignments in the pipeline.”
Hunt added, “Clients have told us they like the fact we are not a & lsquo;database agency’. Instead, we pride ourselves on knowing who the best candidates are and matching them with the right organisations when the opportunities arise. This includes our strong international networks.”
