Finance jobs in Berne or close to it?

I have the chance of a job in Berne. My husband is an accountant and I was wondering whether there will be difficult to find a job for him in Berne or within a commutable distance. He speaks English, Spanish and Italian but not German or French. I know that Geneva or Zurich are likely to be much easier but would Berne still present opportunities?

Thanks for your help.

Assuming he`s not Swiss qualified (front the Italian speaking part) I think he will struggle to find work. Most positions in Zurich area also require german. I`m an Accountant/ Controller who followed my wife here and have found it very difficult to get anywhere. Most of the jobs require a local language even those with multinationals.

There seems to be a bigger market for 2 to 4 years qualified. If your partner is more experienced there seems to be less jobs around as you get more senior.

Go to jobs.ch and go through and see how many jobs you can find that match your partners skills and only require English (as well as the other languages your partner speaks). That will give you an idea. It seems to help to know people at least around here and Im sure that helps in Berne.
