"Although Switzerland has been my new beloved home since April 2019, Australia, where I led a wonderful life for 22 years, will always remain a special place for me. I am very motivated to work at SWISSAID, helping to creating a better world together with a fantastic team."
Book keeping for India, Myanmar and Tanzania
"I am mainly involved with the tenth SWISSAID country, Team Switzerland. I have met incredible people in this team: committed, motivated, uniquely tolerant, humorous and amiable. A team that challenges me every day and for which I gladly give my best!"
Human Resources and HR-Development
"What always impresses me most is the way our projects involve women. They are often the ones who give a project dynamism and enable them to move forward. SWISSAID gives me the ideal opportunity to combine my flair for languages and my fascination for numbers."
Book keeping Switzerland, Nicaragua, Colombia and Ecuador
"Whether in Asia, Africa or Latin America – project visits are incredibly inspiring. It is a constant reminder to me of how SWISSAID's work makes change towards a socially and ecologically sustainable future possible."
Head of Finances and Logistics Department & Member of the Executive Comitee
"The encounters with the people from our project countries have taught me that we are all equal at heart. It is enriching to work with people from a different cultural background – offering support, exchanging knowledge and understanding a different point of view."

"Whether it's a climate crisis or social inequality, the world is facing incredibly serious challenges that need to be tackled globally. I see SWISSAID's work as an important part of the solution – and I am committed to it together with over 180 employees worldwide."
