When new couples arrive in Switzerland, it is often the case that just one of the partners has been offered a new position with one of the local companies.  The other may decide to take a career break to look after children or set up the new family home.  When the time comes to start looking for work, the process will inevitably be more difficult than in the couple's home country, as job seekers struggle to come to terms with factors such as work permits, not to mention language and cultural barriers.

To help accompanying partners find employment, a number of organizations have been set up in Switzerland. Details are listed below:
