Job Description

If you have experience in IT security, risk and compliance and are looking for a new challenge then this could be the perfect role for you. 

You’d be joining a team of dedicated security and risk specialists in an organisation that provides a nationally significant asset to the UK’s electricity supply. By Joining Drax you’ll be joining a business that recognises the importance of security and risk management, and an organisation that is really making a difference. We provide over 11% of the UK’s renewable energy supply and are looking to do more. We’ve moved 4 of our coal units over to sustainable wood pellets and have plans to bring the last two off coal well ahead of the government deadline of 2025 with ambitious re-powering projects.  

As you’d expect we have a high level of investment in security and look to leading edge tools to protect our business and you’d be developing the compliance knowledge and skills within the wider IT team by rolling out tools, policies, procedures, training and coaching and mentoring. You’ll ensure IT project teams have risk management and risk treatment controls embedded into their delivery schedules.  

You’ll also support the continual improvement of the group security framework, policies and standards, keeping an eye on compliance to relevant regulations. You’ll be able to engage and influence within our business units but provide central oversight to ensure consistency across our group.  

You’ll need a professional risk management certification, such as IRM, ISACA or an equivalent academic qualification and a recognised security certification, coupled with experience in delivering regulatory risk management compliance activities and working with a range of stakeholders.   

You’ll need to be able to influence and communicate well across the board to lead meetings, forums, audits and training. You’ll need to be flexible to travel across our network of office bases across the UK. 

Apply today to bring your specialist experience to a new and rewarding opportunity at Drax. And in our experience once you get bitten by the Drax bug, you’ll find it hard to shake. We’re a unique business in a complicated industry, you’ll find it hard pressed to find another place to work like ours.
