Recruitment in Switzerland

Recruiting Staff in Switzerland

We have been dealing with a few employers from Switzerland - mainly wealthy private households from Geneva- since 2008, and are now looking in 2019 and beyond to increase that number and range to broaden our multi-country general appeal, well beyond just our traditional UK client base.
While the Swiss employers we get contacted by are primarily private households looking for domestic staff (housekeepers, Nannies, Carers), we are keen to deal with small to medium owner run business employers looking for office and other staff as well.

Please see the relevant pages, using the menu links above for further information or use the contact page to get in touch with us, detailing your Switzerland staff recruitment requirements.

Housekeepers and Nannies in Switzerland

While Switzerland has no national minimum wage as a whole, The Swiss government introduced a minimum wage for domestic staff - this was to try and avoid exploitation that was/is rife in some parts of the domestic staff employment area. This wage exploitation is especially the case for Non-European household staff.
Geneva(local canton rules): 19.26 - 24.77 CHF
Federal Rates: 18.55 - 22.40 CHF
Some adjustment for up to nearly 1000 CHF is allowed for accommodation deduction for live-in staff. We, at Eastern Europeans Recruitment make no judgement on the wages that a family may decide to pay their staff as we understand household incomes can be tight, but we ask that any wage is fair and reasonable for us to be able to deal with it on your behalf.
