Britain’s Energy Coast (BEC) is a commercial organisation that specialises in owning, operating, developing and regenerating property.

BEC owns and operates Westlakes Science & Technology Park, a successful commercial development near Whitehaven. The park is home to more than 2,000 professionals working for companies working in the nuclear, energy and science & technologies industries, or provide supporting services to these world-class industries. Located on the A595, the park is close to the Sellafield site and other major industrial locations along the west coast of the County.

BEC uses its commercial knowledge and skill-set to generate profit surplus, which it then ploughs back in to projects in the districts of Copeland and Allerdale, particularly those related to low carbon energy.

BEC also undertakes strategic property interventions to help get key developments back on track. This has included work on the Northern Quarter of Whitehaven Harbour – the site of an old bus station on a key piece of seafront land in the Georgian seaside town.

BEC is on the look-out for people who can help deliver its important mission. We typically look to fill senior roles, providing competitive salaries and benefits to people who reflect the values and behaviours that are important to us.

BEC is owned by Copeland Borough Council, Allerdale Borough Council and Cumbria County Council, along with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, which is headquartered in the borough of Copeland. The BEC team work closely with a number of key local partners including the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership.
