@ Drax

Drax is a unique and inspiring place to build your IT career. No matter what team you work in you will be supporting Drax’s clear purpose to enable a zero carbon and lower cost energy future; in our Generation business, we take pride in the part we play.

Our IT team covers all disciplines including Architects, Software Engineers, Project Managers, and Apps Support, Test and Business Analysts. We all work together to deliver multiple interesting change projects whilst also delivering a top class business-as-usual service to our stakeholders. Projects are very wide ranging, from standard upgrades to major business change like the conversion of our Drax Power Station in Selby from coal to biomass and gas, from optimising our rail and shipping deliveries to forecasting trading conditions.

The IT team at Drax combines our passion for innovation with a business strategy that is more critical and significant for our future than ever before. My career at Drax has allowed me to grow and to be challenged and, as Head of Generation IT, I am really excited to be able to provide the opportunity for more IT professionals to join us on this journey.

Jeanette Beresford, Head of Generation IT

About Drax

Our success is all down to hard work, innovation, being agile, and truly believing in the direction and strategy of the business. If you value these traits too, then you’ll fit right in at Drax.

Drax generates 12% of the UK’s renewable energy supply and we think that’s fairly impressive given we started life as the UK’s biggest coal fired power station.

We’ve converted 4 of our generating units to Biomass, replacing fossil fuels are our primary fuel, and we’re making plans for the last two generating units to be converted to Gas. We also recently acquired eight more smaller power stations across the UK, making Drax a flexible generator that can adapt to the needs of the grid, supporting when wind and solar aren’t an option, making sure the lights come on for 6 million homes. Drax is a pretty cool place to come to work every day.
