Engineering Design Draughtsperson


To produce, maintain, issue and where necessary check 2D & 3D drawings such as Mobilisation Layouts, Mechanical devices, Structures, and Storyboards to meet the needs of the business.
The designs will predominantly relate to vessels, offshore construction operations, marine activities and subsea related items. These will mainly be grouped into two categories, design drawings detailing a proposed structure / layout, and drawings to aid procedures and planned operations.
You will manage and control the production of the drawings from concept to final delivery, ensuring and upholding the highest standards of quality assurance and draughting standards. This may also include being deployed outside the office, supporting any works during fabrication, installation and where necessary operations, requiring a willingness to travel, a can-do attitude and overriding commitment to safety by design.

Key Deliverables:

  • To be embedded in the Engineering team, working alongside others producing concept to detail design of equipment layouts, mechanical products and structures predominately related to offshore platforms, wind farms, ships, ROVs and underwater cables and in other fields as necessary.
  • Develop, maintain and adhere to Company drawing procedures, ensuring standards are uniform and appropriate for all the business units. This is part of the continuous improvement process.
  • Manage company drawings from mark-ups to final delivery, where these are carried out by others, ensure appropriate QA is in place.
  • Technically support other end users with design matters.
  • Develop and maintain Company CAD templates, libraries and draughting related information, identifying areas of improvement relating to drawing output and workflow.
