Perhaps you can help me?

I am a Search Consultant currently conducting a World-wide search for a Client of mine. My client and I are looking for an engineer who would be headquartered in the U.S. in Chicago, IL, but spend large amounts of time in Pakistan. The Engineer would have a Hydropower and Geotechnical background and be involved with the Neelum Jhleum Dam Project just north of Karachi.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. You may contact me directly at the following number: 602.625.9005.
This is a very big opportunity and need to collaborate with someone familiar with the country, it's customs and educational system.
We can discuss a financial incentive for your assistance.
