ESL Fuels is an innovative and entrepreneurial fuel supplier. We were the first UK producer of biodiesel and followed that up that innovation with a fuel that transformed the industrial heating market. More recently we’ve been boosting our range with new processing capabilities and grades that look to bring further cost savings to our customers, both further differentiating ESL Fuels as a supplier.

We aim to participate in markets where our technical insight can be leveraged and where we can capitalize on our large-scale storage and blending operations across the UK. We operate from four terminals, each strategically located at major import locations and near local refineries.

We recognise the value that people bring to our constantly evolving business and want to recruit people who challenge the status quo and have the tenacity to implement new ideas, whilst being flexible and willing to support team members in delivering the day-to-day needs of our customers. We are keen to hire a graduate with the potential to develop quickly. It’s a rewarding place to work and a huge opportunity for any graduate who believes they have what it takes and a strong interest in a commercial career. The graduate will probably start in the role described but will gain exposure to all aspects of business.
