I'm currently working in a bank so I want a professional job there..

Be aware that the banking industry is contracting; many of the larger banks are under extreme cost pressure and so have been laying off employees regularly for years now. (Several banks have announced yet more layoffs for this year...)
If marriage is not in the cards*, if your only route is a sponsored work permit, in addition to the difficulty of gaining a permit for a non-EU you are also looking for a job at a difficult time in your industry. So you need to think strategically.
One way some non-EU folks end up getting here is to first seek a job with a company in their home country that also has a presence in Switzerland, hoping for an international transfer down the road. Is this a possibility for you?
Another is to promote your unique skills to a group that is marketing to your home country - be it language skills, local knowledge, etc. This is something of a risk, however, because many companies eager to hire that local knowledge/language obviously prefer to keep the employee in the local location, where the clients are. (And because Swiss labor is more expensive than just about anywhere else on the planet many global companies try to move jobs outside Switzerland wherever possible.) But it might be a start.
What do you do in banking? Some info might help folks here to give you more constructive ideas...
But I'll second what others have said - learning German (French, Italian as applies) will strengthen your hand.
*And... along with Island Monkey I'll caution you about trying to make the leap here, turning your life upside down in the process, before your partner is ready to make a real commitment to you.
Wishing you all the best.
