Sunly Energy hiring for a variety of roles including student summer positions
by Ethan Paquet
Sunly Energy sells and installs solar panels for residential and commercial buildings. Located in Stratford, they currently employ over 40 staff who work across the Island.
“We are currently hiring both field and office staff in roles such as Solar Installers, a Project Coordinator, a Solar Specialist, and a Solar Advisor,” says Kristin Hibbard, HR Manager. “We also have some positions that would be suitable for students looking to work this summer.”
On-the-job training is provided, and applicants applying for the Solar Installer position should be comfortable working with tools and working at heights, Kristin says. “For example, roofing experience is a transferable skill. Previous experience working in construction or with power tools or hand tools is also an asset. Previous solar experience is not a requirement.
“With our summer positions, we are really just looking for students who want to get into the renewable energy field.
How to apply
Current job listings can be found on Indeed.ca and WorkPEI.ca. Applicants are also welcome to email their resumé directly to Sunly.
Kristin’s advice for applicants looking to stand out is to be prepared to talk about past experiences and how they might fit the role they are applying for.
“Sometimes people don’t come prepared with an updated resumé, or they don’t include all their work experience because they don’t think it’s relevant to the position they are applying for. I
think it’s important to look at all the different experiences someone has had, so be prepared to talk about those in the interview.”
