Temporary work contract - what type of accommodation should I look for??

I live in Geneva. I'm soon moving to Bern for a new job. My new work contract is until the end of June this year, potentially to be extended for 6 months at a time.

The idea is to initially keep my apartment in Geneva (maybe I'll look into subletting it) and take something cheap in Bern. I'm thinking about applying for a lease takeover on an apartment in Bern, but I have two concerns:

1. If my work contract doesn't get extended beyond June, can I find someone else to take over the lease after such a short time? Will it be easy?

2. Considering the type of work contract I have, would the agency consider me?

If for any of the above reasons this is not feasible, what other sensible accommodation options do I have? Airbnb would be expensive and I've looked into flatshares and sublets but had no luck.

Many thanks in advance for any replies from anyone who is more knowledgeable than me about these things!
