Be honest, what use is a non German/French/Italian speaker in recruitment when the choice is massive ?
FWIW, I freelanced here between '92 and '07 and *many* of the agents I dealt with here were native English speakers with poor or little knowledge of one of the Swiss national languages.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that most IT business is conducted in English.

The Financial IT company that I am currently employed by has it's founding HQ in Germany and a string of subsidiaries in Europe, Asia and in the US.

The official language for all internal documentation is English. It's like that for many multi-national companies in CH, especially in the main cities.
