Companies in Zurich with English-speaking expats
 
Hello, I am new to the forum and it was suggested that I post here as this community is extremely helpful. I have recently moved to Zurich and am interested in learning about companies who have US, UK, Australian, etc. or other English-speaking expats in Zurich (or the surrounding Zurich area). I have no plans to contact these companies but rather am curious about all of the global companies who have English-speaking expats here. I may do additional research on the topic but want to start first with a comprehensive list of companies with English-speaking expats. Thanks so much for your help!

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

You might get more response if you say why you would like to know of these companies. First off though, all banks that have IT dept's will have plenty of English speaking ex-pats. Most of them spend most of their time on here ;).

You could also join the BSCC.

This is why I rarely post. Simply wondering if a list of companies who have placed English-speaking expats in Zurich already exists as to not spend hours re-creating the wheel. Sarcastic quote from Boxman was not appreciated.

silly me, I simply thought you could not be bothered actually searching. It's only the very top thread of the employment section.....

Well, you've confused me now - I thought you "rarely posted" because
you "only just" joined today...:confused:


And if you don't appreciate sarcasm, you're really in the wrong place :msnshock:

Do you suffer from OCD? Do you enjoy creating lists just for the purpose of creating a list? If not, kind of a strange curiosity especially as you have no plans to contact any of these companies.

Have another glass of wine, and don't mind the sarcasm. People get fed up answering the same questions repeatedly...in this case, as pointed out, the answer to your question is post no.1 in the employment section.

Post, but think before you post, or at least show you have made some effort to find out the answer before you ask the question.

You got the response that you probably deserved on this occasion. This forum CAN be extremely helpful, but sometimes you have to help yourself before asking 'others' to do your research for you. At least explain why you want this information.

Here's an old list of major employers in Switzerland most of which will employ a large number of ex-pats.
May be a good place to start.

Good luck and welcome,
