Are you an experienced DBA looking for a new opportunity?
Drax Group is 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 are committed to enabling a zero carbon, lower cost energy future.
As a Database Administrator at Drax your focus will include; documenting all operational systems and processes in your tower, working with the wider IT ops team to contribute to conjuring, maintaining and operating databases, installing/configuring/testing database components, providing day to day patching/indexing and monitoring of the database environments, ensuring availability, capacity and performance are maintained.
You'll also assist with escalations, requests, reports and audit logs as needed, as well as supporting the ongoing analysis of our database platform.
But we don't need to tell you what a DBA does, you already know that. You've been doing this stuff for ages. What you will be interested to know is the important role that you'll play in supporting the infrastructure of a business that literally keeps the lights on. You'll be part of a company that is striving to a lower cost, lower carbon future for the energy industry, and one that is making a real tangible difference to the world for future generations.
And that part is the unique part. A job to be proud of.
You'll need experience with SQL and Oracle database technologies, ETL processes with the ability to create complex packages using DTS and SISS, as well as AD and SQL security. You'll have excellent documentation skills, up to date industry certification and knowledge of proactive monitoring and system management tools.
We work closely at Drax, so having a genuine interest of what we're trying to achieve and understanding your role in that goal, will help you settle into the Drax family quickly. We look for people from different backgrounds and points of view to create strong teams, but what brings us together is the drive to support Drax to make the changes needed for the future.
Drax 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. Our inclusive culture, employee engagement activities and development opportunities make Drax Group a great place to work.
