Finding a job in a Media Agency in Zurich without speaking German

Hi all,

I will be following my partner to Zurich in a few months time and I will have to search for a new job in Zurich!
I do not speak German at all and it worries me a bit. I would like to find a job in a Media Agency as a Digital Account/Project Manager.

I am french and currently work in Singapore.

Does everybody speak English in the media agencies in Zurich? (Mediacom, OMD, Zenith, MindShare, Carat...)
Since Account Servicing implies being in contact with local clients, I suppose it will be an issue not to speak German. Please advise.

I am happy to learn the language, of course, but it will take some time...

Thanks for your help,

Stephanie

Re: Finding a job in a Media Agency in Zurich without speaking German

Fab timing! I got a call this morning from a recruiter who told me about a role in a Basel media agency (English-speaking). Consequently, I'm not looking for anything but I'll pm you the details. =)
