As a fully integrated firm, we connect knowledge and experience across our global network of experts to help clients solve their most complex challenges. From high-performance buildings and infrastructure, to resilient communities and environments, to stable and secure nations, our work is transformative, differentiated and vital. A Fortune 500 firm, see how we deliver what others can only imagine at aecom.com and @AECOM.

We have a number of opportunities within our Dubai office for Quantity Surveying graduates to work within our project cost management teams, to help provide construction cost management services to our clients in the Middle East and around the world.

AECOM provides Cost Management services to Clients in both the public and private sector, and to organisations in all areas of the Construction Industry including:

You will have opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients including some very high profile names, often working alongside other construction professionals in multi-disciplinary teams. We believe that actually doing the work itself gives the best opportunity to learn, so you can expect to be given responsibility, and will need to be able to work both autonomously and as part of a team, all whilst receiving the guidance and support to allow you to develop.

+ Tax free salary of 12,000 AED per month

+ Flight, 7 nights accommodation, and 3,000 AED relocation payment if relocating from outside of the UAE

+ Costs of visas covered by AECOM

+ Medical Insurance
