Looking for help in finding a regular part-time job in Basel

My name is Nell. I am 18 years old and have just graduated from my high school. I plan to attend university in Australia next year, but until January of that year I will remain here in Basel and hope to save some money. I am looking for work for weekday afternoons (from 3pm onwards as I already have a job in the mornings) and possibly weekends. I am very interested in working as a part time nanny - collecting children from school, taking them home and caring for them into the evening. I have a lot of experience in child care and can provide references if desired. I am also willing to look after animals, clean or anything else similar. Furthermore, I have a completed CV that I will be able to provide to employers.
I would really appreciate any advice regarding where I should look, who I should ask or what I should do in order to find this kind of regular part-time work in Basel.
Thank you so much for your advice and guidance!

Welcome to the forum, but what Swiss permit do you hold?

Re: Looking for help in finding a regular part-time job in Basel

Well, if you want to keep that you'll need to talk to your gemeinde to see about putting your permit on hold until you return to Switzerland after your studies. A C permit holder can only be out of the country for a maximum of 6 months at a time, but there are provisions for suspending it for up to 4 years. The accepted reasons are being sent to work abroad by a Swiss employer, military service or further education.

Work-wise what about McDonald's as well? They offer part time working.

Re: Looking for help in finding a regular part-time job in Basel

Once I leave Switzerland I will not need my C Permit as I will not be returning to live here any time soon. Therefore, the permit is no problem as I will still have it whilst living and working here until January of next year. I have considered places like McDonalds; however, I already work at a restaurant so I was hoping to find some sort of part-time nanny job, looking after an animal, simple office work - anything that isn't necessarily working with food. Do you know of anywhere I could look?

Re: Looking for help in finding a regular part-time job in Basel

Well, there are usually noticeboards up in places like Migros, Coop, etc, with things advertised including jobs. Might find something there. And of course, there's the Jobs Offered section down in the Marketplace part of the forum.

Once I leave Switzerland I will not need my C Permit as I will not be returning to live here any time soon.
If I were in your position, I would go down to your local Gemeinde (municipality offices) and ask them about the possibility that Medea Fleecestealer (a smart person who knows a lot about permits) mentioned, of having your C Permit put on hold.

I think it would be worth it to find out what it would involve to get permission to retain your Swiss C Permit, even though you are going away to study.
Check if there are any fees to do that. Ask what it means about re-entering Switzerland, and about any tax (or other) financial responsibilities you may have if you do this. Ask if there are benefits, for example, in terms of insurance, if you return to Switzerland.

How long have you lived in Switzerland? Quite a few years at least, to be entitled to a C Permit.

You're setting out, now, to a new country (or maybe back to your previous country) but you cannot know for sure (after all, none of us ever can) whether your plans, there, will work out as you expect them to. Perhaps you'll love it there, and fit in right away and never want to return. But what would happen if, once there, it didn't work out and you found yourself longing for "home" (whatever and whoever that was) in Switzerland? Wouldn't it be great, then, to have your valid C Permit in your pocket, and the right to return?

Okay, that's my advice... though not actually what you asked for, in this thread.

Re: Looking for help in finding a regular part-time job in Basel

It might be worth your while to contact employment agencies which may have temp job postings.

Is there a possibility that you can extend your part-time job to full-time? Just my 2 cents worth....
