Working with Infinis
We’re committed to building a greener and sustainable future. A significant part of that is partnering with clients in the renewable energy space and helping them find the right specialist talent as the world transitions to a low carbon economy.
One of those clients is Infinis, the UK’s leading generator of low carbon power from captured landfill and mineral methane. Their capture projects already prevent the release of more than six million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) escaping into the atmosphere.
They were looking to diversify and expand their business to create long-term sustainability and had recently opened a new solar energy division. Some existing staff members would be transferred to the new solar division but their roles had to be filled first. That’s when Infinis turned to SThree.
The team needed to fill a range of vacancies including hands-on electrical instrumentation and mechanical technicians as well as controls and instrumentation engineers. Infinis specifically needed talent with high voltage experience. In addition to the challenge of having to find these niche, specialist skills sets, SThree had to deliver in a relatively short timeframe.
Given our market knowledge, we fully understood the scarcity of candidates with these skills, especially those with experience in senior leadership positions. We made these challenges clear to Infinis and helped them design a more attractive offering to attract talent with the right skills and necessary experience.
We applied our expertise in the electrical engineering space to identify candidates with the right experience profile. Then we approached our network of highly skilled professionals and found the specialist candidates Infinis needed. It has allowed them to expedite their growth plans into the solar energy market and work towards meeting their net-zero carbon emissions target.Find sought-after specialists
