Do international companies in Geneva help their new workers with getting work permit?

Hello everyone. I am thinking about to work in Geneva so I need some information about work permits in this city. Can someone please tell me, do international companies in Geneva help their new workers with getting work permit? Letís Say Russian company Rosneft (I am interested in this company). Does this company do so?
Thanks in advance

Very generally speaking: if you are from the EU, you can apply for the permit yourself. If you are not from the EU (or Switzerland), the employer needs to apply for your permit.

Thanks you for your reply.
I am not from EU.
As I understood from your message does it mean that all Private companies in Geneva can apply for my permit or are there any companies that canít apply for permit for their workers. I mean in my opinion it doesnít make sense that company canít apply for permit otherwise how can I work for that company and live in Geneva.
Did I understand you correctly?
Please correct me if I misunderstood you?
Thank you very much.

If you are not from the EU or Switzerland, the employer will need to show that they could not find someone from EU/CH and now want to hire a non-EU person. Nothing to do with a company being private but rather with your nationality.

if you are from the EU, you can apply for the permit yourself.
or also if you are from EFTA countries Iceland or Norway.

The non-EU hiring criteria is outlined here:

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...zulassung.html

You need to have a university degree and several years of experience. It will cost your potential employer time and money to prove their case so unless they think they have a good chance of success they simply won't bother to apply.

To come back to your original question, if you have a job offer from an international company, HR will generally do all the admin associated with getting a work permit for you, in my experience.

Makes a change to be able to say something nice about them :-).
