Life at Midsummer Ireland
Midsummer began on a narrowboat in 2005. Our MD Andy lived off-grid and, as a former climate scientist, had experience with PV and battery systems in remote locations. The company has grown steadily from these modest beginnings, seizing the opportunity the feed-in tariff brought for the UK solar industry in 2010.
Now in its 15th year, we’ve recently moved into our 6th warehouse; opened an office in Dublin, Ireland; have gone international with our solar design software; and have added 16 brilliant minds to the business during the course of 2020.
We're a profitable and growing business that’s united behind a motivation to promote renewables widely, enabling as many people as possible to harness, store and intelligently use the free energy from the sun.
Working at Midsummer
As the best distributor in the renewables industry, we know what’s required to provide a consistent, exceptional level of service to our customers. It starts with our team, which is why we are continually investing in our training, development and culture.
Whether you join as part of our graduate training program or as an industry veteran, we have programmes that run across every aspect of the industry. From product knowledge and system design to business, operations and customer service, we ensure each team member has the knowledge and skills to thrive.
We’re proud that our employee turnover rate is below average for our industry. Our development programme is integral to this, ensuring our employees reach and fulfil their potential. Whether it’s developing within an existing role, maintaining the same level, or progressing to the next, working in a business and industry as exciting and innovative as renewables means there is plenty of opportunity. We also run the only Graduate Scheme in the industry - training the bright and ambitious people who'll take the renewables industry forward.
“Midsummer took me on as an intern on a two month contract and from day one I felt that something was a little different here! The people who work here and the management from the top make it a cracking place to be. The team ethos and camaraderie make getting through the tough times a walk in the park, and we believe in what we do. We're such an innovative company where everyone's input is valued and considered, and as a result, are ever-evolving and forward thinking. It's such an exciting place to be doing some good and the future looks very, very green."
