“Dosign stand by my side, also elsewhere in Europe”

Faiyaz Khan is among the most experienced engineers working on a project basis for Dosign. The London-based chemical engineer has been working in the process industry for more than 36 years, involved in projects in various countries in Europe, Asia and Africa.

Faiyaz came into contact with Dosign when offered a job through an agency at CB&I, on the Shell site in Wesseling (near Cologne). “As neither the recruitment agency nor CB&I had branches or affiliates in Germany, they couldn’t employ me directly", so Faiyaz.  “CB&I had then contacted Dosign to offer me a contract for a position at the CB&I Shell site. That was fine with me. The contract conditions were suited to requirements and the Dosign team seemed to be friendly and very forthcoming.”

Bert started his technical career in 1976 after graduating from LTS. "I went to work as a machinist," he says. "I came into contact with piping and was immediately fascinated: the work, the field, the welding. I then talked to my boss and soon started working in the piping workshop. Not long after I went into field work to build plants."
