Moving from Reading to Geneva

Hi all just thought I would join the forum and introduce myself. I have recently been offered a role working in Geneva and am currently working out the options such as where to live, costs etc etc so please bear with me if I ask any stupid questions as I want to make sure its 100% right before I jump in with two feet.
