Who are DOCAN?
Let’s get the fundamentals out of the way. We are an engineering consultancy and software distributor based in the northwest of England. We have been around since 2017 and our aim, like all engineering consultancies, is to help clients solve problems at various stages of a project timeline.
What do DOCAN specialise in?

- Engineering simulation, design, assessment and analysis
- Term contracting
- Expert reviews
- Turnkey solutions
- Software training and solutions

What do DOCAN stand for?
Naturally, it’s hard to approach this without sounding pretentious or cliche – but as a company, we do have a set of core values that drive everything we do. They are:
- To have a can-do attitude
- To have accountability
- To have integrity
- To be honest and straightforward
- To deliver on value and quality
- To have a positive social impact
- To have a customer focus
- To have the most appropriate and innovative technology solutions available
- To be positive
- To have fun and learn on the way
Working for us will expose you to these values, many of which are applicable beyond the working environment.
So, why work at DOCAN?
Here comes the big pitch.
First and foremost, we offer the opportunity to work on advanced engineering projects across a range of industries and engineering disciplines, including new & emerging renewable energy technologies as well as established industries. Our engineers are exposed to a high variety of project types and industries to ensure progression is maintained, but are always mindful to play to an engineer’s specialism and strengths.
All of our roles encourage staff members to express their entrepreneurial side. We give everyone a fair opportunity to encompass their own ideas within the business. This is a fundamental part of the business development process, allowing us to grow as a collective with input from the whole team.
The nature of the industry means that we have to adhere to deadlines and, at times, ambitious objectives – but we do so whilst maintaining a relaxed and friendly working environment. We use best in class software to achieve our objectives, and we have formed strong relationships with leading software houses.
We would like to think that we create a great platform to help our people grow as both an individual and an engineer.
