English term or phrase: engage in
Before his extradition, I sincerely believed that he was willing to engage in any and all services required of him or recommended to him by the Department.
MB
ser empleado
Explanation:
Según el diccionario Inglés-Español Simon / Schuster's, cuando se trata de servicios la mejor opción es usar "emplear" o "contratar" para traducir "engage in".
También le sugiero usar la palabra "comprometerse", pues además de ser otra traducción válida dada por el mismo diccionario, quedaría bien en su contexto.

Muchos saludos afectuosos y suerte de Oso :^)
