Meet Susana Gale - Accountant
I joined Jesuit Mission at the beginning of 2013 as the JRS accountant and in January 2015 was finally transferred to JRS.
I was born in Argentina, where I graduated as an Accountant and registered with the Professional Council of Economic Sciences. I have extensive international experience working for a wide range of organisations, from not-for-profit entities and small to medium enterprises to large corporations in Argentina, South Africa and Australia.
When the opportunity arose I joined Jesuit Mission and later JRS because I have always been attracted to Ignatian values – due to the Jesuits’ positive and long-lasting influence in my country of birth.
Since I began working at JRS I have witnessed the power of the Holy Spirit when translated into action by outstanding human beings (staff, management, volunteers, donors) who care about the struggles the asylum seekers and refugees are facing in our land and our world today. Hence I believe it is an honour to be part of the JRS family.
I also believe that JRS, like many other not-for-profit organisations, needs to address its own sustainability as well as finding solutions to the scarcity of resources and funding .
