Interested in contracting in Switzerland?

What’s excellent about contracting in Switzerland with Access Financial?

The picture postcard beauty of Switzerland is almost a cliche, but the companies that either originated there or chose to have their European headquarters there are less known about Switzerland. World leaders such as Nestle, ABB, Novartis, Hoffman LaRoche, Givaudan, Rolex, UBS, Credit Suisse, Glencore, Chubb, Zurich and Richemont are all companies based in this small, landlocked jewel of a country that is Europe but not the EU.

World-class universities of ETH Zurich belong to the top 20 universities worldwide. Other Swiss institutions are well-recognised in academia and business, for instance, the University of Zurich, the University of Geneva, and IMD in Lausanne.

These powerhouses in a country of fewer than 8 million people with borders with Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland have led to one of the highest standards of living in the world and fantastic opportunities for those with the right skills.

All foreigners need a work permit to work in Switzerland and, since 2015, there have been quotas for foreign workers, but if you have high-level skills or work in a sector where there is a perceived shortage of talent, Access Financial can help you to obtain the legal right to work.

If you are a recruiter, then you should not carry out your business in the Swiss market unless, like Access Financial, you have the necessary authorisations. However, help is at hand, and we can help you stay within the law while conducting your business.

You may be a recruiter ready to invest in Switzerland but lack the expertise to set up and perform the back office operations. Again, help is at hand, as Access Financial has years of experience running the Swiss back offices of foreign-based recruitment businesses.

If you have permanent placements, you should not operate in Switzerland without the required permits. Conducting your business via Access Financial keeps you within the law and your contracts enforceable.

Since 2003, Nyon has been our home in the canton of Vaud, between Geneva and Lausanne in the French-speaking Suisse Romande. We have dealt with most of the majors and in all the business cantons. We like to think we know Switzerland inside out, and we probably do. Additionally, being part of the global Access Financial Group, we understand the legislation abroad just as well. We are perfectly placed to advise on the Swiss and foreign aspects of any assignment or project you may have.

Feel free to contact us at [email protected] or by tel: +41 22 365 4620, and we would be delighted to tell you more about how we can help you and your business in Switzerland.
