Sol Systems

A leading solar energy firm, dedicated to building a more sustainable future.

The Partnership.

Sol Systems has financed or developed over $2 billion of solar energy assets to date. We work with some of the largest corporations in the world to achieve a carbon-free and sustainable future. Sol Systems has been founder-lead throughout its 15 years of operations and is backed by KKR, one of the largest private equity firms in the world.


The challenges they were facing.

As they went through a period of expansion, growing from a 40-person business to nearly 200 people that they are, they only wanted to partner with the right recruitment firm, as they have a small HR/ TA function, that understood them and the market.

They wanted to ensure that they partnered with those who could hire not only the most skilled professionals but also people who would fit well into the company culture.


The solutions we presented.

Sol Systems has a fairly lean HR/TA team (3 people) and with the high demand for true culturally aligned quality talent into the business, they needed to engage with a specialist recruitment business that could help them attract the best talent in the market at scale across many positions.

We offered support across a very wide range of roles and business units. This was across Project Development, field technicians, M&A, Engineering, Project Management, Contract Managers, Procurement, GIS, Real Estate Management, Origination, Construction, Project Finance, Interconnection & many more over our years of partnership.

We presented them with a “Project Retained” solution to be able to cover the highest volume of roles, at the lowest cost, that also streamlined their recruitment process. This improved their hiring rate while reducing the amount of time it took for each hire.


The Results.

We have placed 20 high-quality people into the business, delivering a best-in-class service and a true partnership that continues today.

Through the quality of service and the quality of the delivery by Piper Maddox, Sol Systems was delighted with the solution implemented and our service exceeded the expectations of the business.
