Please note, candidates must be eligible to live and work in the UK to apply for all positions.

Mechanical Engineer and Senior Mechanical Engineer

We have some exciting times in front of us at DOCAN.  No day is the same, no industry is the same.

We would like to hear from engineers who are confident, experienced, and like a challenge.  We need multi skilled people who are willing to learn new things and contribute to the growth of the company and help train less experienced designers.  In addition to the basic requirement of being a Mechanical Designer, we would also like our ME’s to have a good knowledge of codes, standards and OEM handbook methods.  We would ideally also like our Mechanical Designers to have worked in at least one of the following industries – Oil & Gas, Drilling, Offshore, Subsea, Nuclear, Defence, Aerospace or Heavy Manufacturing.  All candidates will be considered on merit however. For Senior ME’s we expect the same as above, but a demonstrable level of experience of running projects and leading teams.  Candidates will ideally be capable of becoming Chartered Engineers.

Graduate Engineer

A graduate mechanical designer (2:1 as a min), ideally with some practical engineering experience, possibly gained from an apprenticeship or similar, with a detail orientated analytical mind, with a hunger to learn new and difficult things required.  The expectation is that the graduate will have some experience of CAD, FEA, CFD and CAE in general and is interested to develop these areas to an expert level.  At DOCAN, one day we can be working on product design, another we can be completing assessments to confirm fitness for service of equipment.  We work in all industries over the full product life cycle.

Technical Author

Technical author required with knowledge of creating cutting edge, fresh looking technical documents from scratch. Must have the ability to complete technical illustrations either using CAD as a template, or from scratch with appropriate software.  Must have exceptional technical English ability.  This is a developing area of work within DOCAN, and is therefore an opportunity for you to develop this role, methods and client base.


Drafter required with at least 5 years experience.  Expect exceptional skill with Solid Works with ability to create complex solid models, assemblies and detailed machining and fabrication drawings.  Would also like to see skills in areas such as reverse engineering (i.e. LIDAR scanning to CAD),  rapid prototype modelling for 3D printers and product data management.
