Job figures improve for the renewables sector

According to the Renewable Energy Association (REA), there has been an 8% leap in the number of people working in the sector – from 102,987 to 112,055.

This compares to an overall rise in UK employment of just 1%.

Hyperion Executive Search managing partner David Hunt said: “Companies are posting more job opportunities which is not only creating opportunities for those in the industry, but also for those with transferable skills interested in moving across to the sector.”

Mr Hunt added there is a real opportunity for the sector to continue to attract talented candidates in related industries.

Hyperion Executive Search hopes that the new Conservative Government recognises the role it can play by getting behind the renewables industry and helping it to move forward with confidence.
