Drax Group are playing a vital role in helping change the way energy is generated, supplied, and used. Generating 11% of the UK's renewable energy supply, we're committed to enabling a zero carbon, lower cost energy future.

As we move ever closer to a coal free future, biomass becomes increasingly more important to our business strategy and you will have a direct contribution to our success. As many coal fired power plants close around us, we are charging ahead with an energy revolution. Along with moving away from coal we are piloting the first bioenergy carbon capture storage projects, the first of its kind in Europe, and if successful could make our renewable energy carbon negative. If you're as passionate about protecting the future as we are then you'll fit right in.

We are delighted to offer one exceptional candidate the opportunity to join the Commercial Trading team as a Junior Fuel Trader. You will join the fuel trading team based at Drax Power Station responsible for maintaining supply of fuel to the station and adding value to the portfolio. Within this role you will work closely with the Fuel Traders and support them with all aspects of physical commodity trading within the Biomass market, including financial valuations and modelling, contract management and market reporting.

You'll be confident engaging with relevant stakeholders both internal and external and be comfortable managing data across various systems. The successful candidate will take ownership over their areas of responsibility and work closely with the team to ensure tasks are completed accurately and efficiently.

This role will be joining a fast-paced, cross functional, dynamic team so ideally you will be able to react quickly to situations and challenge where necessary.

We are open to candidates from different backgrounds who are looking to build a career in a commercial environment within a growing industry. If you are excited by finding the best deal or the best commercial result then this role could be a great fit.

Drax Group offers a range of great benefits including minimum 25 days' annual leave, up to 10% pension contribution, private medical insurance, life assurance and income protection, as well as a range of voluntary benefits including dental insurance, cycle to work schemes and dining cards.
