Recruiting in a Growing Sector: Why Securing the Best Talent is More Important Than Ever

"Hence, the old-school mode of recruitment—throwing CVs at clients and seeing what sticks—can have a negative impact on your company’s brand and profitability."

Talent acquisition is one of the most crucial challenges facing any ambitious business. A good idea or innovation is useless without the right people at the steering wheel.

And keeping the best talent and recruiting the most sought-after individuals is essential in clean hydrogen as companies look to become leaders in this burgeoning strand of the energy mix.

While receiving an alarming amount of investment and dominating conversation in recent years, hydrogen is still in an embryonic phase of development. There is a shortage of skills available to you in the market.

Hence, the old-school mode of recruitment—throwing CVs at clients and seeing what sticks—can have a negative impact on your company’s brand and profitability.

So, what if you’ve tried numerous avenues and still can’t find the person to best sell your electrolyser? Or you’re still at odds with your team about who might be best to help your product meet
the market’s growing demands?

Recruiting correctly is much more effective than rushing into making a hire or using every recruitment company available to advertise the position. Much of talent acquisition is about reach.

How can the most sought-after talent be made aware of your open position? Or what if your brand is not appealing when they do become privy?

What if the people you are hiring are being approached daily by competitors with a more established image? How do you stand out from the competition? Here are some benefits BOSS Energy can bring to the process:



We provide a bespoke and dynamic approach which is finely tuned to ensure that the short-term targets and longevity of your business are in safe hands.


Why partnering with a bespoke recruitment company is vital

A strong network of hireable individuals in your geographical region is not enough if you’re looking to globalise quickly.

And with the introduction of remote working, having a worldwide team of like-minded staff is evermore desirable for a growing business.

Even if you might not be looking to place staff around the world, your competitors are, so the race for talent is no longer on a domestic level. At BOSS Energy we are witnessing this battle for hydrogen talent firsthand.

After years of monitoring the industry’s trends—and adapting our processes—we are in a unique position to assist in your company’s strategy for hiring. We have pedigree in helping businesses scale.

If we understand your short- and long-term goals, we are better placed to find you like-minded talent.

If we understand your technology and can be talked through its similarities to existing energy infrastructure, we can find you candidates with the most transferable skill sets.

Equally, if we form a partnership, it’s easier to convey your message to candidates when approaching the best people, thus strengthening your brand and ensuring there is alignment in candidate and company aspirations.

A good-looking CV is only 10% of the job when hiring the right individual. In the world of recruitment, it’s vitally important to keep up to date with the sector, to become a meaningful actor within your domain. We understand the market.
