Job Openings in Swiss Spy Agency

Today's Blick says that the Swiss Federal spy agency, NDB, is planning to hire an additional 20.5 spies and Ueli Maurer wants 80 more than that. Job duties include: bugging private rooms, eavesdropping telephones, sifting through e-mails, hacking computers and more!

No address is given on how applicants are to contact the NDB. That might be secret.

I'd do it in the day time but I don't like going out in the dark

About "job duties include: bugging private rooms, eavesdropping telephones, sifting through e-mails, hacking computers and more!" But we all do that

Re: Job Openings in Swiss Spy Agency

Eavesdropping, sifting or hacking would be OK, but I've never really seen myself as a bugger.

Regarding how to apply - presumably anyone who is even half-way qualified for the job would know exactly where and how to apply.

Re: Job Openings in Swiss Spy Agency

Job openings are here:
http://www.stelle.admin.ch/stellen/i...x.html?lang=de

(select "VBS").
Can't see any for "NDB" (the "Intelligence Agency" of Switzerland though.
Might also need a Swiss Passport.

Nothing in my line of work at VBS at all though - and most jobs are in Bern anyway...
But maybe they don't want direct external applications anyway but go through head-hunters or encourage internal candidates who already have some sort of "history" with their employer.

Re: Job Openings in Swiss Spy Agency

20.5! I suppose the last 0.5 is a part-time position then. I think I can do that between daycare drop off and be home to make dinner?
