UK Citizen: need information about visa

Hey all, I'd really appriciate some clear advice on this matter as I've been searching the internet for ages and still haven't found a clear response.

My situation is as follows:

I have come to Switzerland to spend some time with my boyfriend, who is a Swiss citizen. I have visited many times before, but this time I would like to find a job here. I will be occasionally going back to the UK for visiting my family and friends every 2 months or so for a few days, but would ideally like to work in Switzerland until December.

I read on many information websites that I am allowed to stay upto 3 months, without a visa, but does this allowance renew itself everytime I leave the country?

Also, I tried to register with Adecco, to find myself a job, but was unable to complete the registration page because I'm not sure what the situation is involving a visa. Do I need to obtain a visa now? Or, do I try to find a job without a visa, and ask an employer to apply for one for me? If the latter is the case, this makes it almost impossible to find a job, as potential employers see that I have no visa, and won't want to employ me.

I'm so confused.

Please help me!

Re: UK Citizen: need information about visa

You do not need a visa, period.

However, as a jobseeker you should register at the local town hall where you will receive a residence permit valid while you seek a job for 3 months. On being offered employment (good luck there) you should inform the town hall and they will extend your permit. If unsuccessful then you can get an extension for a further 3 months but that is your lot.
