AECOM is one of the world’s largest International Development service providers, operating in 113 countries, coordinated through the work of 2,000 corporate and project staff. AECOM deliver International Development services through dedicated practice areas, working with clients in the public and private sectors to achieve sustainable development outcomes through cost-effective, innovative and equitable activities.

AECOM manages the Program Implementation Unit Consultant (PUIC) for the Indonesia Infrastructure Initiative (IndII) Provincial Road Improvements and Maintenance (PRIM) Program. The objective of the Program is to support the routine maintenance of provincial roads throughout Indonesia to benefit from better planning, more appropriate engineering in both design and implementation, and better supervision. PRIM aims to demonstrate a sustainable, replicable model for using conditional grants to incentivise better governance, quality and value-for-money in maintaining provincial roads. The current focus of the Program is capacity building, strengthening of government procedures and maintenance planning and effective delivery.

AECOM is currently recruiting a Team Leader for PIUC, which provides support to the Program implementing parties, including support in preparing engineering designs and bid documents, carrying out training and institutional strengthening activities and providing institutional support to the maintenance works program. Leading a team of international and national consultants, the role will have a primary focus on change management and building the capacity of Provincial Government counterparts and the District engineers, assisting to define and develop specific technical skills and build requisite competencies.

This will entail influencing leadership behaviours as well as driving governance changes. The position will continue to focus on the core activity of producing verifiable quality roads maintenance interventions and will involve providing technical input and support in the development of roads technical standards and norms, technical specifications and quality assurance mechanisms.

To be successful in this position you will have tertiary qualifications in engineering combined with a depth of expertise in roads engineering, ideally in rural road development. You will have experience leading multi-disciplinary teams in a developing country context and proven success in capacity building and institutional strengthening for operational sustainability. The ideal candidate will be able to effectively engage and develop constructive working relationships with a range of government and community stakeholders and influence national professionals and managers. A self-starter, you will thrive in a dynamic environment, driven by capacity development and actively facilitate positive change. A working knowledge of the Bahasa Indonesia is an advantage.
