ÅF has hired 100 immigrated and foreign born engineers and provides manual for HVAC engineers in Arabic

Since ÅF launched its New Immigrated Engineers internship programme in 2016, through Diversity Coach Amir Nazari, 100 foreign born and immigrated engineers have been hired through the initiative.

Amir Nazari & Zain Nadra

Zain Nadra, an HVAC Engineer from Syria working in Solna, Sweden, was one of the first candidates in the program. Zain initially felt that the language was a challenge – it took time to get familiar with Swedish building rules, technical systems and terminology in the field of HVAC and sanitation – and therefore she started making a glossary. At first only for herself, but eventually the idea to create support for more newly immigrated Arabic speaking engineers grew.

The result, ÅF’s HVAC & Sanitation manual for Arabic speaking engineers in Sweden, is available for free download on the ÅF website.
