Redundancy and Working Visa Permit

Hoping that I can get some advice if possible please

I have recently been made redundant from my role as a Global Sales Manager. I have a Swiss Working B permit and am unsure as to the status of this now that I am unemployed and seeking a new job

I am not claiming any sort of benefits and am paying for Intensive German lessons in order to improve my chances of finding a new job, therefore I am not a burden to the Swiss Tax Payer in any way. I am English but very much plan to stay and live in Switzerland long term

Does anyone know where I stand with the working Visa? Is it still valid for me to live and work here for the 5 years that I am registered for, or is it linked specifically to my initial employer?

Any help would be very much appreciated

Thank you

If you are a UK Citizen (EU), there is absolutely nothing work permit-wise which would prevent you from finding a new job. A EU B Permit allows you to switch jobs and cantons at will per the provisions of the Swiss-EU bilateral agreements.

The Swiss tax payer does not pay your unemployment benefits, it is an insurance. Go ahead and claim the money you are entitled to.

The RAV will also pay the German course as well!
