Working without speaking German

What kind of job can you do here in Zurich when you don't speak German but French and English and have a background in Administration?
Any idea?

Re: Working without speaking German

By administration, do you mean administrative support? There are administrative assistant positions in international firms in which the business language is English, but I would think knowing at least some German as well would be helpful, if not a requirement.

French could be useful, depending on the company and who they're doing business with. Do you have a specialty in administration, e.g., legal, financial, general management, etc.? If so, hone in on those types of businesses and search from there.

The international language in aviation is English, so most aviation based companies like English speakers. Although some insist on English and German, others do not, so its worth looking in that field.
