Residence permit questions


I am an Australian citizen looking for some information on how to obtain a residence permit. I currently live and work in Slovenia and I will be moving to Zurich in March for work. My work has applied for my working visa for me which is a short term (annual) B permit.

I inquired at the Swiss embassy as to how I go about obtaining a residence permit as well and they advised me I can only do that after the work permit is approved and only after my arrival in Switzerland. I have lived in a few European countries and I have had to apply for the working and residence permit concurrently so I am not sure if I am getting the right information.

Is there anyone that could shed some light on the residence permit process: what I need to do, what documents I will need and how long it actually takes. It would be extremely helpful!

Thank you!
