Ittigen - well done for saving this from being another unanswered thread.

Sam - if you have a job, you have a twinky 'ikkle card with a number on it. That's your National Insurance Card.....albeit foldy plastic

Re: Swiss Equivalent to SSN/NI

Is the AVS Number needed for getting a job like a NI or SSN Number in the US/UK or is it different because you have ID Cards.

Yes, you need one to have a job and pay your social/retirement contributions. If you don't have one then your employer will get one for you.
