Chances of getting an English speaking job in Data Analytics?

Hi all

I presently lιve in Greece, i have 12 years experience in Banking in Greece and 2 years in Data Analytics in UK. I have decent programming skills in Python, R, SQL and some knowledge of other programms and systems (html, css, javascript, PowerBI, etc)
My English is good and know some basic German.

Do i have any chances of getting am English speaking job in Data Analytics in Switzerland?

If yes, is it important to move to Switzerland to improve my chances, or there is no big difference if i search from here?

Any comment is appreciated

Thanks

Nope. Sorry. This has recently been renamed to English-unemployed-forum, but the admins were too busy slacking off to update the logo.

Lots of data analytics/science jobs about.
No issue with English in Pharma.
Plenty of work in the UK also paying top dollar.

Apply from where you are, many first interviews are telephone only.

Re: Chances of getting an English speaking job in Data Analytics?

There is a chance, but competition is fierce and IT work is being largely outsourced to East Europe these days. You won’t be able to get a flat without work, so moving here first before searching would be difficult. You also have to consider residency/working permits depending on where you are from. Applying abroad with a cover letter implying your desire to move will help. Your expertise is needed in Pharma these days.

The fact you speak English is considered as basic education here, everybody speaks English......and most people one of the local languages, usually French or German.

Hi there.

Just read your post to my OH who is also here on a Greek passport. He says everyone's got SQL, but Python and R are always in demand. Get your CV loaded on Indeed.ch, ITjobs.ch and Jobserve, and chase opportunities that suit you.

Good luck!
