Need a little help with engineering please

Afternoon guys and girls,

I'm all set to start applying to companies in switzerland, was just wondering if anybody could point me in the right direction for agencies that deal with trades?

I'm a welder fabricator by the way

I have found numerous jobs online to apply for but was hoping to find out whether there was a specific site of agency that people tend to use.

Thanks very much and take care x

Not engineering. I know it's apparently ambiguous in the uk, but don't use that term for trades work. To nearly the entirety of the rest of the world, an engineer requires a BSc/BEng or MSc/MEng.

And you're going to have a very hard time without a local language.

Not quite the useful response I was hoping for, but then that's the joy of forums

Sure it is. If you're searching for engineering roles, you're going to waste a lot of your time sifting through roles you can't fill.

For trades, try the headhunters like manpower, page personnel etc. Easiest to get a foot in if you can convince the recruiter.
