What we do for Clients

Hyperion is a client centred executive search firm, which means we work with our clients and tailor recruitment solutions according to their needs. Our executive search service is so effective largely due to our passion for the clean energy industry, we provide an insightful approach to talent acquisition.

We consider the nature of the role, level of urgency and level of difficulty to fill before suggesting the best method to help. Essentially we won’t ‘sell’ a solution until we have diagnosed the problem.

We spend our lives ‘in’ the industry; day in and day out we are speaking to clients, contacts and candidates in the renewable and clean energy industry. We have an active role within the industry to ensure our executive search methodology finds the very best candidates for your organisation.

While we keep every conversation confidential, it does mean we aggregate a huge amount of industry data, on market conditions, salary levels, activity levels, and candidate perceptions of your company. We use this data to help our clients define job briefs and to tailor a specific executive search campaign per assignment.

Some roles will require a retained search solution, where the fee is paid over two or three stages. This enables us to devote the required level of resources and time to the critical research stage of the process, making sure no stone is left unturned and no relevant candidate left unspoken to.

David Hunt and Hyperion have been involved in several high-level recruitments for EVBox, both in the UK as well as other European countries. Professional, thorough and consistently going the extra mile are but just a few reasons that we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hyperion Search when recruiting new staff.

Peter van Praet | CCO, EV-Box

For the expansion of my team at LG Chem, I was looking for somebody who could help find the right candidates. David came across as an extremely well connected individual with a legendary “keep calm” attitude from which I could truly learn. Although we had to re-adjust our search due to a variety of reasons (none of them related to him or Hyperion!), he reacted in a customer friendly way and most importantly, he found the right candidates. If you are looking to expand within the ESS world in Europe, David is your man!

Santiago Senn | Director, Energy Storage Systems EMEA, LG Chem

We retained the services of Hyperion Executive Search to help recruit a Country Director for the UK. Their reputation and industry connections in the clean energy sector are very strong. Hyperion took the time to take a detailed job description, and then kept me informed in every step of the process, from their research through to the shortlist and then to contract negotiation. It was a smooth and enjoyable process. We now have an excellent new member to the team. I strongly recommend working with David Hunt and the Hyperion Team.

Benjamin Schott | Director Business Development, Sonnen GmbH

For retained assignments you work exclusively with us, and we work exclusively for you. No candidate, no matter how good, will be offered to another client until you have filled your requirement. All the information we gather in the executive search process is exclusively yours. This is recruiting in true partnership.

We spend our lives ‘in’ the industry; day in and day out

Some roles will be well suited to a contingent search solution. In this instance no fee is payable unless the search is concluded successfully with a candidate we have put forward.

The same level of professionalism, care and effort is provided, but not the same level of research or exclusivity.

One thing we are not is a database agency. The vast majority of the candidates we work with are ‘passive’, that is they are not actively looking for a job, but are open to hearing about excellent opportunities. They do not post their CVs on job boards, or register with dozens of agencies. We work with people who value their career, and respect their current employers.
