Italian citizen wants to live and work in Switzerland

Hello everyone! Im Italian citizen and i want to come here in Switzerland and look for a job and live here . Since I already have a family here, I would live with them. Since im Italian I have full right of free movement in Switzerland. Im just curious what do I have to do to get my residence permit, where should i go, what should i have. Also im interested if does anyone knows some courses near Zurich on English language like for Maler(painter) or something like that. But I have also experience in hospitaliy like working in restaurant and bar. I was learning German for few years.

Cheers!

Surely it would be better to go to Ticino where you can train in Italian?

it's all in italian, read the website and you will find everything inlcuding address of the ZH migrationsamt. free circulation yes, but if you don't already have a job when you come you need to have 100 CHF per day to show, anyway you can stay as a tourist until you find a job i guess. Since you also speak german you have an advantage over all the other italians that want a job in ch.

for painter:

it's in german if you do it in zh, but it's like starting high school as a level of difficulty so maybe you can do it.

I have family in Zurich and I speak German, why would I go in Ticino?
I dont speak Italian, my dad never taught me Italian.

Yes but what if my family here support me? Im already here, I came 1 month ago, but I didnt look for a job yet. I go now on my ferien and when I come back i will look for one. Since im a lady I would look first for a babysitter job or something. I have A2 German cerificate.

I can do anything constructions, painting, anything. I have A2 German cerificate. Im a woman but i can do anything

Does anyone know do I need to finde 100% job or it can be like 50% to get permit?

I just assumed Italians spoke Italian. Sorry for not knowing your history.
P.s. I think A2 is not enough to do a course in German and I don't know of any English Fachschule.

Bad assumption.

Some speak German, others Ladin, however most can speak Italian to some extent.

But not all.

Not all Swiss speak German, either.

Yees dud haha I speak 3 languages. But not Italian.

I think I can speak and understand more than A2. I can also speak with someone on dailybasis and understand them.

Help

Does anyone knows how much % do I need to work to get B permit? I heard that u need to have money to support yourself. But the thing is that I live with my unte and she pays the apartment and all the bills for it. And I will stay with her even when I get the job. I have no intensions for living alone for now.

Re: Help

Ask at the migration office. It could be 50% if a job pays enough or it could be a 100% job that's doesn't. As someone said [above] CHF100 per day is the general figure to work to.
