How We Built a Team That Shares Our Vision for a Sustainable Future

Daniel Tonkin

As the demand for renewable energy in Australia grows, so does the need for skilled professionals to install and maintain solar energy systems such as solar panels. But these talented people don’t grow on trees. 

At Think, we make it our mission to find only the best people for our team. We recruit not only those who are skilled and have the right expertise for the job, but also those who are passionate about the environment and the role they play in working for a cleaner, greener world. 

As you can imagine, finding this potent mix of passion and proficiency is a bit like finding a needle in a haystack. And that’s why we decided to call in the professionals.

Why Finding the Right People Matters

Renewable energy isn’t just another industry. It’s a dynamic sector that’s fast shaping the future of our planet. That’s why we need individuals who understand the intricacies of solar, battery, EV chargers, heat pumps, and other renewable technologies. But technical expertise is just one piece of the puzzle. We want to hire people who are driven by a genuine desire to make a difference.

When recruiting for our team, we look for people who are:

Innovative and Efficient: The renewable energy sector is constantly evolving. We need team members who are curious, creative problem-solvers who can push boundaries and develop cutting-edge solutions.

Customer-Focused: At the heart of everything we do lies a commitment to our customers. We need individuals who are passionate about providing exceptional service, ensuring every customer feels empowered and supported on their renewable energy journey.

Knowledgeable: A deep understanding of the regulatory landscape, technological advancements, and market trends is crucial for navigating the complexities of renewable energy.

Building a Team That’s Passionate About the Cause

In the renewable energy sector, customer-centricity is so important. Technical skills can be learned, but passion for a cause and a desire to help people are qualities that come naturally to the right person.

Our commitment to putting customers first drives every decision we make, and this ethos begins with our team. By ensuring that each member shares our values and commitment to excellence, we can guarantee that our customers receive nothing but the best—whether it’s in the form of cutting-edge technology, impeccable service, or expert advice.

We’re proud that our team now consists of more than 40 like-minded individuals that show up every day with a passion for making a difference. But we didn’t get there alone.

Partnering with the Professionals

Partnering with a recruitment agency has been one of the best things we’ve done to ensure our customers get the service and expertise they deserve. Our recruitment partner, WOW Recruitment, has helped us overcome several challenges when it comes to finding top talent for our renewable energy company. Here’s how:

Leveraged their Network

Recruitment agencies have access to a vast pool of pre-vetted candidates with specialised skills and experience in the renewable energy sector. This significantly reduced the time and resources we needed to dedicate to the recruitment process, allowing us to spend our time better helping our customers.

Engaged in Targeted Searches

A recruitment agency that specialises in renewable energy understands the specific skill sets and personalities needed for success in this industry. WOW tailored their search to attract a pool of talent that perfectly aligned with our company culture and values.

Shared Industry Expertise

WOW’s deep understanding of the job market dynamics within the renewable energy sector helped us, and continues to help us, stay competitive in terms of salary and benefits so we can make sure our team always feels valued. 

Prioritised Passion

WOW assessed not just someone’s qualifications on paper but also their genuine interest and enthusiasm for the field. We were able to find individuals who were genuinely excited to be part of something bigger than themselves, who were invested in the company’s mission, and who would go the extra mile to see our vision come to life.

Scaling and Growing Our Team for a Sustainable Future

As the demand for renewable energy solutions continues to grow, so too does the need for our team to expand. Similar to one of our fantastic partners, Tesla, we’re a highly ambitious company, and that’s why we’ve found that partnering with a recruitment agency becomes even more valuable during the growth phase. 

Because recruitment agencies have the experience and resources to manage a high volume of applications efficiently, they can help fill positions quickly and efficiently, making sure that our team has the capacity to handle increased solar power needs and offer comprehensive customer support.

Through partnering with WOW, we’ve been able to scale our operations and position our passionate team as leaders in the renewable energy sector.

Empowering Our Team, Empowering Our Customers

Ultimately, finding the right people has a direct impact on every aspect of our business. A passionate, knowledgeable team translates into exceptional customer service, cutting-edge solutions, and a company culture that is driven by a shared commitment to sustainability. 

We’re also able to deliver exceptional service to a wider range of customers across Australia. With teams all over the country, including Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, the Southern Highlands, and Brisbane and the Gold Coast, we’re empowering more and more people to make the switch to clean energy with confidence.
