Working as a PA in Geneva...

Hi there,

Well this is my first post but hopefully I will become a regular user on here if my plan works out!

I am currently living and working in Dubai but it's looking like myself and my boyfriend will be moving to Geneva shortly. He has been offered a fabulous job and we're both really keen to move. The only issue I have is getting work. I've been a PA in large investment banks for the last 12 years or so. I have really good experience and never have an issue getting myself a job but i speak no other languages. (I'm British) I'm having French lessons to get the basics but i'm nowhere near conversation level. I'm doing ok though... anyway my question is this i guess... Am i dreaming thinking i'm going to get a job without French? and also... what kind of salary can i expect? I have a friend who has just moved out to Zurich and does the exact same job as me. Similar age and cv etc... she will be paid 85k CHF. But was told that anything between 70k - 110k is about right. This seems like great money?! More than what i am getting paid in Dubai!

Any feedback would be great! good or bad too!

Thanks alot,
