If it's a job seekers permit then full time of course. That's the whole point of it, for you to find a job - preferably a full time one so you can pay your bills.

yes of course - but what if I wanted to take a short term project based job for 5-10 hours a week while searching?

Well, I think I'd avoid that until I had a more secure job and the permit was sorted out properly. They probably wouldn't agree to you doing it as it wouldn't pay enough money to keep yourself which is what the authorities are going to be looking for.

Re: working on L-jobseeker permit?

EU nationals can come to Switzerland and register as job seekers which means they have 3 months to find a job. It gives them residency rights while they job hunt. If they haven't found a job within the time frame then, if they can afford to stay here longer and continue their search, they'll be issued with an L permit for another 3 months, providing they have sufficient funds to support themselves. If the authorities don't think the funds are sufficient, the permit won't be issued and they'll have to leave the country.
