Non-Eu skilled worker for Permit??

I'm not sure if I should post this in Employment or Permits....

I wanted to know if anyone could tell me if someone with 10 years experience as a Unix Engineer would be considered a highly skilled worker?

I have been offered a job and I am waiting for the permit and getting nervous about it being approved. Reading around it sounds like you have more of a chance for a permit if it you are considered skilled, I'm not sure what they considered highly skilled.
Any advice or experiences would be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Non-Eu skilled worker for Permit??

In my opinion, you would, but I don't work for the Swis authorities.
You have 10 years experience in IT. However, Swiss have very strict rules and immigration laws for non EU. Anything is possible.

Re: Non-Eu skilled worker for Permit??

Short answer is yes, that's highly skilled.

I'm a Unix guy myself, and there's a bit of a shortage of us around here right now. ;-) Permits take a while, just got a new one myself (switched jobs) but don't worry too much about it. It'll come!

Besides, if it doesn't, nothing you can do about it now. ;-)

Cheers,
Lance

I came over here to work as a Webmaster for Google and they sorted out my work permit without any fuss at all. If you are really good at Unix - drop me an email and I will pass it on to the engineering team and see if they think you pass muster...

Re: Non-Eu skilled worker for Permit??

I am also a Unix engineer, and have family in Zürich. I have been trying for years to find out a job, but every prospect denies me because I don't have a permit, and not an EU citizen, (American citizen ) .

Anybody know recruiters that can help?

Zurich is one of Google's main European Engineering offices. Drop me a mail with your CV and I'll run it by our recruiters:
