Being allowed to work and reside in Switzerland

Switzerland, with 8.5 million people, has a foreign population of 24 percent. The country is not part of the European Union. Though, it has a set of bilateral agreements with the EU, that make working for citizens from other EU member states possible without any hindrance. A popular referendum in Febvruary 2014, which the xenophobic and rural right wing party, the SVP, initiated and by a whisker won, has challenged that status. Though the executive and the legislative have achieved a translation into a meaningful and constructive set of rules, which will be acceptable to the EU. Switzerland's economic growth and prosperity are very much helped and supported by a large well-educated expatriate population. Moreover, there is a continuous need for more professionals. The government reduced the number of work and residence permits for qualified people from outside the EU/EFTA countries from 10,000 to about 7500 work permits per year. This change in rules was a move to appease the rightwing nationalists, the SVP, and others,

The freedom of movement into Switzerland by EU and EFTA citizens does not apply to nationals of non-EU countries such as the USA, Canada, and Australia. Unless you are an executive transferee (i.e. a person sent by the parent company to do a management or technical job in the Swiss subsidiary), it is tough to get a work and residence permit for Switzerland. There are some exceptions for people who have unique and rare skills for which there is a shortage in Switzerland. As you can imagine, in a highly industrialized country like Switzerland, these allocated permits are used up and allocated very quickly.

There are short term work and residence permits for qualified people. Though, these types of work permits are often limited to 12/24 months, without the option of renewal. If you find an employer willing to offer you a job in a sector where there is a labor shortage ( nursing, IT, bioengineering, pharmaceutical industries) industry, , your prospective employer has to apply for an annually renewable Residence/Working Permit B. After five years, provided your behavior has been immaculate, you can convert that into a Permit C. This type of permit is something like the Green Card in the USA. In other words, you gain permanent residence status.
There are a few other possibilities to obtain time-limited work permits such as for seasonal workers in the hotel industry and agriculture, and stagiaire jobs (training jobs). Being able to speak one of the national languages obviously helps. The official languages of Switzerland are German (the spoken language is Swiss German, which even Germans find difficult to understand - with lots of variations - about 63%), French (27%), Italian (8%) and Romantsch (2% or less).
Many people, especially in banking, business and the tourist industry, science, and engineering speak English. The Swiss travel a lot and it is not uncommon to meet a secretary who speaks three languages and has been all around the world. The general education level is extremely high, and there is an extensive well-regulated state-controlled apprenticeship system for nonuniversity graduates, with apprenticeships lasting between 3 and four years for almost any profession and trade. There is a coveted state diploma at the completion. Getting a job without that, or its foreign equivalent, if you are from most EU countries, is almost impossible. Restoro
Switzerland is a country of "renters" and comparatively few people own their own home. Housing costs in Switzerland are extremely high. Though, condominium purchases have increased during the last few years. In some cities, such as Geneva and Zurich it is extremely difficult to find good and reasonably priced rental apartments. As a general rule, you have to expect to pay about 30% of your salary for your apartment.

The Swiss work longer hours than the rest of Europe, usually about 40-45 hours a week. They have about the average of paid vacation, four weeks per year for the first five years of a working relationship and five weeks after that. Though, the legal requirement is four weeks only. comfortable protective face masks

As a general rule though, local information is found under If you cannot locate a municipality, search through Google below.

There are regional JOB SITES in Switzerland, but they are usually in the respective local language (i.e. German, French or Italian). One of these local search sites is The site advertises jobs in the Cantons of St. Gallen, Appenzell and the adjacent areas of Thurgau (all about 50 miles east of Zurich towards Lake Constance). Just click on the company logos to see who offers jobs. The catchment area of around one million people is in and around the City of St. Gallen. St. Gallen, founded in the 7th century, only has about 78,000 inhabitants. One part (see is for the politics, cultural and social issues of the city and the surrounding areas - obviously in German! It has, like all localk papers, a "job-bourse"). There are all sorts of jobs on offer. However, all job descriptions are in German. The local daily newspaper of the area The Tagblatt (the "Daily") - owns the site. There are many regional sections to this paper.

Advice and Guidance to the Swiss Job Market

Until very recently, we gave free advise on how to go about, getting a job in Switzerland. But since January 2009 we are being overwhelmed with request. On some days we receive over 300 e-mails per day, asking for information. We want to give a reasonable assessment on whether a person, especially those from non EU/EFTA areas, have a chance of getting an employer to apply for a work permit and then being able to work in Switzerland. This is not an easy or cheap process. Because we have to pay an increasing number of people, we are forced to charge a reasonable amount for such advise. We offer three different programs that are priced on the basis of the effort we have to make, to gather material and respond to the questions posed.

Job Search and Advice Packages for Switzerland
A General Appraisal about your chances of being able to be employed in Switzerland and getting a work permit A Job specific Assessment of your ability to find a job in Switzerland with some Guidelines towards possible employers Detailed Advice on a Job Search with the identification of potential employers, and writing/editing of a Curriculum Vitae (in English). Ongoing Advice on a Job Search for three months with writing/editing of a Curriculum Vitae (in English) the identification of potential employers, review of each cover letter to employers and an appropriate generic Cover Letter for general use.

We cannot guarantee that you will get a job. Nor can we ensure, that you get a work permit. Though, if you find a job and are highly qualified, the work- and residence permit is not a problem. However, we can improve your chances and, tell you what you will find regarding the quality of life and the general job situation. We will not apply on your behalf and to whom you apply for a job is up to you. You should also be aware that many jobs will require, besides English, fluency in German and/or French. High School knowledge will not do for that.

Current Economic Position and Outlook for 2017/20

Comparatively, the Swiss economy, like the German and Austrian economies is doing very well. There are problems, especially with the strength of the Swiss Franc, since it makes Swiss exports a lot more expensive. However, much of the Swiss economy produces high value added products and is highly specialized, and while not insensitive to price movements, the combination of inventiveness, quality, and unique features always helps. 2011/16 has resulted in record output and exports, and while 2017 may see a slowdown, the Swiss economy is far from a recession. Labor shortages continue to plague the economy, and there is a shortage of highly skilled professions in the IT/programming and engineering areas, as well as in life sciences, bioengineering, and the health services sector. Construction is still booming, and rental costs are at an all-time high. Reasonably priced apartments, especially in the major urban areas (Zurich, Geneva, Lausanne, Basel, Bern), are difficult to find.

The US-American, and to a lesser extent, the EU countries attacks on the Swiss banking and taxation system continue, but the systems are slowly adapting to the new circumstances. Zurich and Geneva will no doubt survive as major world financial centers. Recent issues in general plebiscites have ended in defeats of some of the more lunatic proposals by the right wing parties. The last General election has returned a more center-left parliament, and the big foe of immigration, EU affiliation, xenophobia, etc., the right-wing SVP was the big loser, and the party has a reduced number of seats. Nevertheless, the more nationalistic and anti-immigration, as well as anti-European Union will no doubt come up with yet another issue that they think is important and should be added to the constitution. Despite the countries dependence on the markets of the EU, the attitude towards the EU is increasingly more negative. However, as always, there is a certain pragmatism, and in the end, that almost always wins. Provided that during one of the next public votes the young generation, those under the age of 40 feel the issue important enough and to go and vote. If that is not the case, the instability on such topics and public votes will continue, and predictions will be difficult.
