About us

The Prax Group is a British multinational independent oil refining, storage, distribution and sales conglomerate dealing in crude oil, petroleum products and bio-fuels.

Our success has been achieved through our entrepreneurial spirit, dynamic team and lean structure. We are driven, forward thinking and passionate about our products, with a perpetual quest for quality performance across the board. We strive to limit our carbon footprint and to embrace the advent of transitional fuels.
Prax Lindsey Oil Refinery located in North Lincolnshire is a key asset for Prax and is a world-class supplier of quality fuels. Commissioned in 1968, it has the capacity to process up to 5.4 million tonnes of crude oil per year (109,000 barrels a day) and currently employs around 415 staff in addition to a similar complement of daily contract personnel.

The refinery extends over 500 acres and incorporates some of the most advanced refining and conversion processes in Europe, supplying products by road, rail, sea and pipeline. 
The refinery is a key strategic asset within the Prax Group, and we are investing heavily for the long term and are actively looking for new talent that can support our ambition.

We are looking for

Candidates who can demonstrate both their skills and technical knowledge, coupled with the ability to problem solve in a practical and dynamic environment. You should have a good academic history and be expecting a good classification of degree.
