A Few Things about the Political System in Switzerland and its Relationship to the European Union and its Predessessors

If you want to work in Switzerland, you better understand a few things about the country. Since 1848, the Swiss Confederation is a Federal Republic made up of 26 relatively speaking, small states with an important element of independence within the Federal Constitution. There are three main governing bodies on the federal level the bicameral parliament (legislative), the Federal Council (executive) and the Federal Court (judicial).

Through referendums, citizens may challenge any law passed by parliament and through initiatives, introduce amendments to the federal constitution, thus making Switzerland a direct democracy.

Since 1315 and again in 1386 and 1388, the Swiss had fought to keep their independence against foreign rulers. Moreover, in the minds of many Swiss, there is no need to associate themselves with institutions or associations that restrict Swiss independence. Direct democracy has fostered and strengthened that resolve as can be seen from the many votes related to the European Union.

The Swiss population or at least those who bother to go to elections and vote on issues have repeatedly stated that they want to stay independent of the European Union. The first vote that made this clear was in 1992 when 50.3% of the Swiss voted against becoming a member of European Economic Area.

Chronology of Swiss votes about the European Union

3 Dec 1972 Free trade agreement with the European Communities is approved by 72.5% of voters
6 Dec 1992 Joining the European Economic Area is rejected by 50.3% of voters. This vote strongly highlighted the cultural divide between the German- and the French-speaking cantons. The only German-speaking cantons voting for the EEA were Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft, which border on France and Germany.
8 June 1997 The „federal popular initiative" negotiations concerning EU membership: let the people decide!" on requiring the approval of a referendum and the Cantons to launch accession negotiations with the EU («Négociations d'adhésion à l'UE  : que le peuple décide  !  ») is rejected by 74.1% of voters.
21.05.2000 TheBilateral I“ agreements with the EU are accepted by 67.2% of voters.
4. March 2001 The federal popular initiative "yes to Europe!" (« Oui à l'Europe!») on opening accession negotiations with the EU is rejected by 76.8% of voters.
5. June 2005 The Schengen Agreement and the Dublin Regulation are approved by 54.6% of voters
25.Sept. 2005 The extension of the free movement of persons to the ten new members of the  European Union  is accepted by 56.0% of voters.
26.11.06 The cohesion contribution of one billion for the ten new member states of the European Union (Eastern Europe Cooperation Act) is approved by 53.4% of voters.
8,February 2009 The extension of the free movement of persons to  new EU members  Bulgaria  and  Romania  is approved by 59.61% of voters.
17. May 2009 Introduction of  biometric passports, as required by the Schengen acquis, is approved by 50.15% of voters.
17. June 2012 The federal popular initiative "international agreements: let the people speak!" (Accords internationaux: la parole au peuple!) on requiring all international treaties to be approved in a referendum launched by the  Campaign for an Independent and Neutral Switzerland  is rejected by 75.3% of voters.
9. February 2014 The federal popular initiative "against mass immigration", which would limit the free movement of people from EU member states, is accepted by 50.3% of voters

Among these twelve  votations, three are against further integration with the EU or for reversing integration with the EU (6 December 1992, 4 March 2001 and 9 February 2014); the other nine are votes in favour of either deepening or maintaining integration between Switzerland and the European Union.
(Source and ©copyright: Wikipedia)

Switzerland is not part of the European Union, but affiliated to it by a large number of "Bilateral Agreements" (Bilateral I“) and the "Schengen Agreements." As a consequence, people from the EU and the much smaller EFTA, to which Switzerland was a founder member, can be employed and can find a job and live in the country without much bureaucracy.

That does not apply for citizens from outside the EU/EFTA. If you hold a passport from the USA, Canada, Australia, NZ or any other country outside the EU/EFTA, getting a work and residence permit is difficult, and you have to be well qualified and offer skills and education for which there is a shortage in Switzerland. Also, except for a few job areas, you have to know at least one of the national languages with reasonable fluency.

Switzerland has 8.4 million people, is densely populated on just under 16,000 square miles, much of which, such as the Alps, is uninhabitable.

Its Non-Swiss population, i.e. people not holding Swiss nationality is over 23%, and the largest groups are Italians and Germans, followed by people from former Yugoslavia, the Portuguese and Spaniards.

Non-EU and Non EFTA citizens are given work permits under a form of a quota system, In total there are around 10,000 work permits offered per year. Most of these go to highly qualified people.

About Work and Residence Permits

The Type of Work and Residence Permits issued in Switzerland

The important permits for people looking for a job are show in stronger green. The other permit are just there for completeness. You should not that you cannot simply go to Switzerland and then apply for a work/residence permit. You have to be (1) offered a job in writing with an employment contract and then (2) when you accept it by signing the contract , the prospective employer (3) has to apply for a Permit B work permit.

Type of Permit What it allows you to do Comments
B Permit A residence permit usually valid for one year and renewable annually. It is usually the initial residence/work permit for people from in and outside the EU. However, while EU citizens have a right to stay and look for a job within Switzerland, non EU/EFTA citizens do not have that right. For them their prospective employer has to apply for the B-permit and the numbers are strictly limited by an annual contingency. B permit holders are eligible for a C permit after 5 (Canadian, US, EU nationals)or ten years of obtaining the annual B permits
C Permit A permanent residence permit (about equivalent to a US Green Card) issued after 10 years of residence (5 years for Canadian, US, EU nationals) . A C permit may be issued following a 5-year uninterrupted stay when the foreigner has shown his or her capacity to integrate into the population
Ci Permit A work permit issued to the spouse of an employee of an international organization as well as to their unmarried children under the age of 21 on the grounds of family reunification. The validity of the Ci permit is subject to the duration of the post of the member of the international organization  
G Permit Grenzgaenger Permit - a work permit giving a person living in a neighboring country (France, Germany, Austria, Italy and Liechtenstein) the right to work - but not to reside - in Switzerland (cross-border worker) This permit has lost its importance, since citizens of the surrounding countries are all EU/EFTA members and have the right to enter, work in Switzerland and obtain a residence permit.
S Permit A residence permit for persons requiring protection (issued collectively) Refugee or some Asylum Seekers
L Permit A temporary residence permit for a stay of up to 12 months. It is linked to the employment it is granted for and may be subject to other conditions. Short Term Work Permit. Often used for seasonal workers in the Hotel and Tourist Industry and Agriculture for people from outside the EU/EFTA. Now also used for highly qualified workers on short term contracts or assignments (e.g. programmers, IT personnel)
F Permit Temporary permit issued individually and allowing asylum seekers to seek gainful employment as well as professional training. Validity up to 12 months Asylum Seekers only
N Permit A permit giving asylum seekers access to the labor market - but not professional training- during the time their application is being processed and starting on the 4th month following their application Asylum Seekers only

General Workforce, Education and Languages

The workforce in Switzerland is highly educated, and many people are bi- and multi-lingual.The official languages of Switzerland are German (the spoken language throughout all social classes, is Swiss German with lots of variations - about 63%), French (20%), Italian (7%), and Romansch (1% or less). Also, about 9% of the population speaks other languages. English is widely used, especially in banking, business and, of course, in the tourist industry, science, research, and engineering. Despite this openness, except for very few areas (e.g. nurses, IT, some Ph.D. level research jobs), solid knowledge of one of the official languages is essential, if you want to find a job and work in Switzerland.

If you are not from the EU/EFTA, it is tough to get a work/residence permit for Switzerland. There are
some exceptions for people who have unique and rare skills, for which there is a shortage in Switzerland (nurses, IT and telecom specialists, programmers, secondary school teachers, the latter only from the EU, life science researchers).
Another exception to this rule could be if you are an executive transferee (i.e. a person sent by the parent company to do a management or higher technical job in the Swiss subsidiary). Foreign, especially American companies, in the past, often circumvent the difficulties of getting local work permits, by employing transferees in their home country, and then having them work 3, 6 to 12 months in Switzerland.

There is now a short term work permit, the "L-Permit." While this type of work visa is primarily issued for seasonal employees and workers in the hotel and tourist industry, it is also given to highly qualified industrial workers, especially in the information technology sector, where many people work on time-limited projects.

Foreign employees start with an annually renewable "B- Permit." After five years, provided your behavior has been immaculate, you can convert that into a Permit C, which is something like the Green Card in the USA. In other words, you gain permanent residence status.

Employment possibilities, such as seasonal workers in the hotel industry and agriculture, and stagiaire jobs (time limited training jobs, au-pairs) are now also covered by the L-Permit.

The Swiss education system has changed significantly during the last few years with the Bologna Reform. Besides the two highly acclaimed Federal universities (ETH in Zurich and EPUL in Lausanne), there are world-class cantonal universities in St. Gallen, Basle (one of the oldest Universities in Europe), Geneva, Lausanne, Zurich, Bern, Neuchatel and the two new ones in Luzern and Lugano. Besides these, there are Paedagogische Hochschulen (Advanced Teacher Training Universities) in many Cantons across the country. However, the largest change has come with the creation of some Applied Science and Commercial Universities, the Fachhochschulen, which can award University Bachelors and Masters degrees in some subjects.

The Swiss operate a highly diversified dual education system. There is, additionally, the Swiss apprenticeship system, where young people, at the age of 16, enter a three or four-year apprenticeship with an employer. They will be trained on the job, while at the same time attending classes in particular schools. The result will be a State Diploma in professions and trades that range from secretaries, administrative clerks, bookkeepers to car mechanics, the building trades, carpenters, hairdressers and much more. Without that State Diploma or its foreign equivalent, it is hard for the Swiss to get a job. Despite a shortage of suitably qualified employees and relatively low unemployment, even under the present tight economic conditions, applicants from countries that do not have similar apprenticeship programs, have almost no chance of getting jobs in these sectors.

Additionally, the Swiss travel a lot, and it is not uncommon to meet a secretary who speaks and writes three languages and has traveled all around the world.

Housing and Working Hours in Switzerland

Because of the shortage of land, most Swiss are renters of their housing. Housing costs in Switzerland are extremely high and comparatively few people own their home. During the last few years, condominium purchases have increased. However, in most cities, especially Geneva and Zurich, it is tough to find good and reasonably priced apartments. As a general rule, you have to expect to pay about 25-30% of your gross salary for your apartment.
By comparison, the Swiss work longer hours than the rest of Europe, usually between 40 and 45 hours a week. They also have fewer paid vacation days, four weeks per year for the first five years of a working relationship and, in most cases, five after that. Though, the statutory holiday period for all employees is limited to four weeks only.

Help and Programs to Find a Job in Switzerland

For a long time, we have provided free information about employment and job searches in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and France. However, the current economic climate has resulted in an actual surge of requests. We now receive between 150 and 200 serious requests per day. To deal with these inquiries in a realistic, but also, professional manner, jobs4work,, together with JobLine International, formed a team of experts that can respond to these questions appropriately. Unfortunately, this cannot be done for free, but we have tried to offer programs which are affordable to anyone contemplating to go to Switzerland (or also Germany, France, and Austria).

The consultants who deal with the problems of getting jobs in Switzerland (as well as Germany and France) have all lived and worked in the country. Some are dual nationals (Swiss and USA, Canada, Australia or Britain) that have experience with the systems in either country. They all speak the languages, and most of them have homes in the country, about which they give advice.

Scientists Jobs in Engineering and other Manufacturing Companies

Switzerland like Germany, Austria the Czech Republic and Great Britain has a long mechanical and electrical engineering tradition and substantial numbers of manufacturing companies. Most of the Swiss ones are heavily export oriented with Germany, the USA and now increasingly China, Russia, and India as their markets. Also, there is a precision mechanical engineering sector (Feinmechanik) which had its origin in the watch (in the Cantons of Neuchatel, Vaud, and Bern) and sewing machine industry and is now increasingly involved in robotics. Machine tools and sophisticated textile machinery manufacturing is still important, though Italy and Japan are strong competitors in these fields

Types of Recruiters and and how they operate in Finding Employment for you

We will be using a standard classification for the types of recruiters which we show here. This is as follows:

Headhunters and Executive Search Firms Generally these search firms look on their own for employees at the top level, they want to place. Their targets are Board Members, CEO's, CFO's other first and second level management, high level staff and technical specialists. Only some of these recruiters will accept voluntarily sent CV's. The general rule here is:"We call you, don't call us!" But during hard economic times...... who knows!
Executive Recruiters These search firms will generally accept your unsolicited application. They might also recruit on behalf of companies at all levels, but generally specialize at the technical and middle to higher management levels.
Staffing Agencies (incl. Temp. Agencies) Staffing Agencies will deal with temporary and permanent staff placements. Some of them will recruit managers on a restricted time management (e.g. 6 months or one year), and others will specialize in certain economic sectors.
Internet Recruiters and Job Boards Some internet recruiters and job boards do not have offices you can visit, since their whole operation works over the internet. Most of these recruiters will deal with permanent placements only. Look out for reputable operations!

Selected Small and Medium sized Privately Held Companies

Besides some industrial giants, Switzerland, like Germany and Austria has a large number of highly innovative, privately held firms that are often the international leaders in their field. They usually range in size from 100 to 2,000 employees and within the German language area are known as KMU's, an acronym for "Kleine und Mittlere Unternehmen. (Small and Medium sized companies). There are obviously hundreds of these enterprises, and they often form the backbone of innovation and progress in Swiss industry. We have only included a few here.
