Re: Just moved to Switzerland

Bit more info on the field of work you are looking for might garner more helpful replies. Are you an EU or non-EU citizen?

In the meantime you could look at jobs.ch or indeed.ch.

Welcome to EF. I may be wrong and am sorry to potentially burst your bubble but I believe being at least bi-lingual is likely to be a requirement for those roles. Fluency in a Swiss language at least.

Re: Just moved to Switzerland

Welcome to Switzerland and the Forum.

It would be lovely if jobs just fell into our laps when we arrived, wouldn't it? Alas, it seems everyone wants to be in Switzerland for the great wages and fresh mountain air. So we have to do a bit of work just to find work.

Take a look at the stickys at the top of the Employment section - there are lots of links to get you started.

For example: https://www.englishforum.ch/employme...itzerland.html
