Transferring B Permit to a new job? [EU citizen]

I have a good friend who has EU citizenship and came to Switzerland a little under 6 months ago (B work permit). While their position is secure - i.e., they're not going to get fired - it's not the role they envisioned and are interested in working elsewhere but would like to stay in Basel.

Assuming they can find another job is it possible to quit their position mid-contract, transfer to another one, without losing their work-permit?

(Given their background and the open-ended search window, getting a new job offer would not be an issue.)

Did you actually search the forum or googled this?

The answer is very easy to find

Re: Transferring B Permit to a new job? [EU citizen]

I searched the forum. It was not clear to me whether or not the other situations discussed applied here: 1) breaking an employment contract (it's not simply expiring or a mutual break) then 2) transferring the work permit for an EU citizen. I haven't looked closely at Swiss government websites.

I gather the answer is: it depends on if the B permit is tied to the company or independent of it.

EU permits are not tied. They can change jobs without problems.
