The original advertisement for this post contained incorrect information, and has been completely retracted.

The previous versions of this advertisement did not explain that AECOM do not have any authority to act on behalf of the UK’s Department for International Development and the Stabilisation Unit, and do not have a live contract, being in fact involved in an ongoing tender process.

We apologise for any confusion caused by this original wording of the advertisement, and hope that the situation is now clear. Please feel free to contact us if you need any further clarification, or have any concerns.
