Jobs in Basel

Hi All. Im currently looking for employment in English in Basel. I have experience in Banking (Credit & Compliance), Bookkeeping up to Trial Balance and also General Office Management including Logisitics . I have just emmigrated from South Africa so any help would be appreciated. I would even take on junior positions to get established…. Also are there any prefered CV formats in Switzerland and is a Linkedin profile helpful as it is not used much in SA. Thanks Rich

Re: Jobs in Basel

Welcome to the Forum.

Do you happen to have Swiss or EU citizenship in addition to SA, or perhaps you're on a family reunification permit in Germany?

I ask because non-EUs need to jump through extra hoops to find jobs in Switzerland, and you can't be a cross-border commuter unless you meet certain criteria.

If your location is in Germany, this simply isn't going to be possible unless you have an EU nationality as well.

For non-EU nationals to qualify for a G (cross border) permit you have to

a) have permanent residency in a neighbouring EU country (this would be a minimum of 5 years to get in Germany)

b) have lived in a border zone for at least 6 months.

If you have an EU nationality to call on then the above don't apply.

If you're based in Switzerland it also doesn't apply. However, there may be other rules you need to be aware of.

Okay, but are you based in Germany or Switzerland? If Germany it doesn't make any difference to the rules for a G permit outlined above.

Re: Jobs in Basel

Then a G permit isn't possible. The only way is if you get an employer to apply for a Swiss permit for you and the Swiss authorities agree to issue one, i.e. employer can't find a Swiss/EU national to do the job. And for that it would also require you to move to Switzerland.
