Swiss Recruitment Agency

Skills Provision is a professional Swiss recruitment agency based in the UK.

As an International organisation we are well positioned to find employment solutions for local employers and Swiss nationals.

Ranked in the top few countries in the world in terms of quality of life, Switzerland punches well above its weight, areas of dominance include:

  • Banking
  • Insurance
  • Chemicals
  • High end precision Engineering

With an ageing population Switzerland has to look outside its borders to fill vacancies, common areas include:

  • Healthcare
  • Care of the elderly
  • Education
  • Transport
  • Policing

Job seekers from the European Union and/or the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), are generally allowed to come to Switzerland for three months while they look for work. This period can be extended to six months during an active job hunt. Job seekers from other countries must have a guaranteed work contract from an employer as well as the appropriate visa before entering the country.

  • There is a cap on the number of third-state nationals allowed in Switzerland
  • The potential employer has to prove the vacancy was sufficiently advertised and that nobody already working in Switzerland or the EU was qualified or willing to do the job
  • The salary and working conditions of the potential employee must conform to local and industry-specific standards in order to protect residents of Switzerland from wage dumping
  • The applicant must possess the personal and professional qualifications required for working in Switzerland
  • The applicant’s potential for integration is assessed according to various criteria including age and language skills
  • Copies (and translations) of all diplomas and relevant qualifications must be submitted together with the application for a work permit

The reason local businesses like to deal with our Swiss recruitment agency is our extensive knowledge of the country's legislation and our positive strike rate.

  • Well educated
  • Will speak 2-5 Languages
