English speaking contruction jobs
We have been here for abour a year now, and my wife's cousin is very interested in moving here too. Her husband works in the construction industry, more specifically driving cranes (or diggers - I'm not sure what they're called - not the tower cranes though). He is very experienced (about 12-15 years I guess) and runs his own company at the moment.
I've been asked to look around to see what his possibilities would be, so my question is this - do you think it's possible for him to work here not knowing any German? (I think the job would be somewhere along 'Kranfuhrer' - but I work in tax so I might be totally off here). He just started German lessons now so it might take a couple of months for him to learn.
Second question - are they salary levels decent in this industry? (i.e. taking an average salary of Chf5.5k a month, are they average, below or higher?
