Part time work

Does anyone know if its possible to find part time work for example work for 1 week out of a month? Reason why is I am hoping to get a bit of work here and there but then still be able to travel and explore switzerland some more on my weeks off. I have british passport. I only speak english but willing to learn more of the local language when I am there. I have experience in IT hardware leasing, procurement (purchasing officer), Finance (accounts payable), plenty of customer service experience, hospitality, and don't mind getting my hands dirty (stocking shelves, factory work etc). I'll be moving to Switzerland in April or May.

Thanks so much

Re: Part time work

It is unlikely that you'll find a job like this.

Also, you need to earn a certain amount of money to be granted a work permit. At minimum wage I believe they want you to have at least a 50% contract.

This page from the Auslandschweizer-Organisation website has a list of job boards and newspapers in Switzerland. It could be useful:

For hospitality jobs there are specialized job boards such as:
