Jihad Suleiman is working as a technician for Arnon in Tampere. His journey to Arnon has been a bit different than usually. He was born in 1990 in Aleppo, Syria. He graduated as a PLC Control Mechanic – but after that, he had to run away the war. He worked for three years in Lebanon, experiencing in electrification and automation.
In 2015, Jihad found his way to Finland.
– I wanted to come to Finland. To the country that has better working opportunities in high technology, is safe and a good place for me to start to build a future. He had to stay in Finland for six months before he could apply for a job. He started to work in Pizza Service Hervanta, studied Finnish and dreamed about a job in technology industry. He had an opportunity to go through practical training and got a place for it in Arnon. This period was for seven weeks. As a result of great working attitude and willingness to learn he got his first contract.
– What is great about working in Arnon is that we have flexible hours, great and friendly team and I can see my future here. I have a versatile job and possibility to learn more every day. When I was working in Lebanon, we had different kind of tasks everyday so my experience for working in Arnon, is spot on.
