Solar energy firm Be Solar has recruited four new staff in response to growth in the company’s business.

Three of the new recruits are Bermudian and the other is the spouse of a Bermudian.

Paul Gosling has been recruited as the new procurement manager. He is responsible for managing all procurement for BE Solar and ensuring inventory levels match the demands of the business by forecasting requirements in collaboration with the team.

Mr Gosling brings knowledge from the construction and telecoms industry, having worked across various multimillion dollar projects alongside clients such as London Underground, BT Openreach, Vodafone and Virgin Media.

He relocated to Bermuda in August 2019 after working in the UK, the Channel Islands, the Netherlands and Italy. He plans to utilise his procurement experience to streamline BE Solar’s purchasing and inventory control, and develop a sustainable procurement policy to align with the vision and mission of BE Solar.

Raphael Knight-Packwood is the company’s new solar IT specialist. He has a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Brock University. He is responsible for streamlining the solar monitoring programme and responding to different issues that arise on the various solar systems that BE Solar maintains.

He also provides the team with IT support and ensures that the office is well equipped with the necessary resources to function.

Jordan Rowse and Aaron Hooper have also been recruited as solar site technicians. The two young Bermudians will join the installation team to ensure that all the solar electricity systems installed by BE Solar consistently meet high levels of quality and are carried out in an efficient, timely and organised manner.

Mr Hooper is an experienced welder, bringing his skills of precision fabrication onto the roofs of Bermuda. Before his appointment to the team, he most recently constructed the Tourism Authority Information Container Building on Front Street, the tourism hub for the City and home of The Birdcage.

He has certifications from the Bermuda College, Huddersfield Technical College and St Andrew’s Community College. He has progressed from his first apprenticeship at the Works and Engineering department to projects such as the new terminal building at LF Wade International Airport and the American Consulate.

Jordan Rowse, 24, graduated in 2013 from Saltus and is currently completing an electrical certification course at Bermuda College. He has previously worked in the construction industry on both residential and commercial projects.

He has also worked as a lifeguard with the Bermuda Lifeguard Association and his life-saving skills will be leveraged in the health and safety component of the team’s operations.

Mr Rowse also works part time at Gulfstream restaurant on the weekends.

Stuart Kriendler, managing director of BE Solar, said: “We are thrilled to welcome these talented and passionate people to the BE Solar team.

“Our mission is to provide the highest-quality energy solutions that are accessible to all and we look forward to training our new team members to achieve this mission.

“They are now part of an expanding team of people that are passionate about Bermuda and the future of sustainable energy production.”
