Bund Schweizer Werbeagenturen (Leading Swiss Avertising Agencies).

Can you speak French or German? I think that would be necessary to land you a job in media/advertising here.

Most of the media/agencies/film production is located in Zurich. But some international agencies have offices in Geneva, e.g. McCann Erickson.

Re: English speaking advertising/media jobs in Geneva??

No I don't speak French or German.....Hmmm i thought it was going to be difficult to find something. This decision to move to Geneva has been quite a recent thing so i haven't had a chance to browse through websites. First stop was this forum. I think i'm going to take a look at some UK ad agencies to begin with to see if they have offices in Geneva. Like you said McCann do and M&C Saatchi or Saatchi and Saatchi have just opened an office out there (not sure which). More googling to be done i think!

Any other advice or pointers would be a great help!! Thank you!

Re: English speaking advertising/media jobs in Geneva??

Does anyone know of any companies in Geneva that are recruiting for Marketing/brand manager/advertising/media sorts of jobs that are entry level/grad opportunities?

I have 1 years experience in the industry so i'm not a fresh grad as such. Any companies or agency websites i can look at?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi, I have a friend who is in a similar situation as you once were. He is more of the creative type but does not speak French or German. I was curious to see how things turned out for you. Thanks!
