I am new to this forum and need to know more information on the project based B permit.
I am a non EU and working in zürich from past 3 years. got a project based B permit valid until 2016 October.
I am trying for a job change within zürich and recently got a good job offer as well.
Now my question is
1. If I accept this new job offer can I get a B open permit?
2. How is my existing employer involved in this process.?
Please help me in this regard.
Thanks in advance.

A project based permit just serves its purpose i.e. it allows you to work only for that project. if you accept a new job offer, then it is the responsibility of your new employer to apply for your permit and this application will be treated as a new permit for Non EU which means it has to go through normal Non EU hiring process which means the employer has to prove that he cant find anybody from Switzerland / EU to do this job. have you informed your new employer about your current permit status? if yes, then only your new employer can tell you what they think about their chances to secure a new permit for you. normally employers have a fair idea about whether their application for Non EU will be successful or not.
about your other question, i think the current employer may be contacted at some stage to inform that your permit is being switched over to the new employer. this is the case if both the present and new employers are in the same canton. Please note there is only one Arbeitsamt per canton and it is the same office that approves or rejects your new employer's application for your permit that would have issued your current permit for the current employer.
