The JACIE team recently increased to four F.T.E.* with the arrival of Áurea Villar to the team starting this week. Áurea is filling the newly created position of HR (Volunteers) Coordinator. This new role will focus on the critical volunteer contribution that makes JACIE the success story it is today - inspectors particularly but also committee members.

Áurea is from Barcelona. She studied Law and later completed a Masters in HR in 2012. She worked as a lawyer but a career change took her to Médecins sans Frontières where she worked as a HR coordinator for more than 6 years, both in headquarters and Africa.

Áurea brings to JACIE her multicultural experience, her knowledge in HR strategies for recruitment and retention, but most of all how to empathise, connect and take care of people. Do not be surprised if you hear from her over the coming months as she starts to gather information, opinions and impressions on the role of volunteers.
