Hindi speaker needed in Zurich?

Hi,

my husband is Tibetan and fluent in Hindi. His English is intermediate.
Does anybody know if their are realistic job opportunities for Hindi-speakers in Switzerland, preferably Zurich? My husband has a bachelor in economy and has been working as an accountant. However all job-opportunities would be welcome for the beginning. Thanks for conveying your experience or information about the subject.

Unlikely, it's hard enough getting job without any German and just English. Perhaps a job in an Indian Restaurant while he gets his German up to speed?

Its a bit difficult to find Hindi speaking jobs, may be some Indian shops might need a hindi speaking guy to help them out, but wouldnt be a high paying job

The English language is not the be all and end all of everything, i just employed a person who speaks very little Enlish but very good Russian, which is what i needed.

Otlichno!

Agreed there's always niches but let's face it - the odds are somewhat obtuse...

Try hotels or the local tourist boards of Luzern or the Bernese Oberland. There are a lot of indian tourists around at these places.

Fully agree with you, but don't forget, Switzerland is stuffed full of small, medium and large sized trading compaines in a variety of products worldwide.

Tax law here is nice

He could try and see if there is any need at the Klubschule. They do offer Hindi as a language to learn to but the last time I applied for the course, I was told they didn't have any teachers!
