Re: Kraft moves European HQ from London to Zurich

I should keep on eye out for jobs there, considering my love of some of their products.

I think I've seen a Vegemite jar tie somewhere for sale. If I see one I will send it to you, might help with the interview.

It certainly adds to the pool of English speaking MNCs for us expat types...

Re: Kraft moves European HQ from London to Zurich

It will be interesting to know how many staff are coming with the move. Maybe there won't be so many new positions as one might expect.

Re: Kraft moves European HQ from London to Zurich

Hi,
it is good that they are coming to Switzerland. I just wish that there were more companies coming to Basel. At present more and more jobs are moving to Zurich which means if you don't want to live in Zurich you are faced with a long commute each day which can really disrupt your social life. At present I am lucky that even though the hq of the company I work for is in Zurich there is also a branch office in Basel so I don't have to go to Zurich very often.

In the long run I am quite worried about the majority of jobs being in Zurich.

Happy new year

Martin

Anyone heard anything about this move by Kraft recently? Recruitment wise

I can still only find details for the small Swiss office in Seefeld.

Re: Kraft moves European HQ from London to Zurich

Cheers,
