Unless you have been living under a rock for a while, you will know that the world is constantly changing.
While global warming may still be a controversial topic in some countries, it has not stopped renewable innovation from moving forward. Many countries are making it a priority to achieve a cleaner, greener planet. All countries face increasing energy demand and are under pressure to find eco-friendly ways to produce it.
The energy industry is changing.
The energy industry is going through more than a time of change. It has already changed.
We receive reports every day about innovations and improvements in the renewables sector. There are more new companies than Usain Bolt can run the 100m. And the old giants are investing millions in environmentally friendly projects and businesses. It doesn’t matter if it’s solar energy, wind power or bioenergy; it’s all growing quickly.
A fast-paced industry like ours can mean great opportunities for companies like Brunel. The sector is requiring talent at an amazing rate. This means new opportunities and career paths for candidates. Careers that require technical skills are also available. Employers face the challenge of finding the right people to help them with their projects.
Traditional education is finding it difficult to keep pace with the changing industry. Experienced people are becoming increasingly scarce. This is because experience in this relatively new industry is often limited or nonexistent.
How can this industry continue to innovate at such a rapid pace without having the right talent to do it? It isn’t as easy as offering the highest salaries and the best benefits to find and hire the right people. Finding talent in the renewables sector is difficult because they need to identify people who are either able to learn on the job or have transferable skills from other industries.
Online platforms and social media make it easier for HR professionals and recruiters to do their jobs. These platforms are great for the renewables sector, but do they work? These online platforms cannot handle complex job descriptions and changing responsibilities. These online tools are designed to help you find candidates based on your experience, past jobs, education, and companies. What happens if the candidate doesn’t have the relevant experience in an industry that is constantly changing? The job of a recruiter has become more complicated. Not only do they need to understand the client’s requirements, but they also have to predict which candidates will be able to learn on the job.
It’s not like searching for a needle among haystacks. Instead, it’s like searching through haystacks for a needle that isn’t yet designed or manufactured.
