Work and Travel in Zurich

Help us grow. Share what you know about getting work in Zurich for travellers.


Please edit this section to tell travellers what kinds of short term work is available in Zurich all year round. Mention skills that are in demand here more than other places. For example, if you can get some work as a translator in Zurich but it is as hard as anywhere else, don't list it. If it's a region in China that cannot get enough English translators.... I think you get the idea.



What kinds of work are available in the spring time in Zurich. Remember to keep work that is all year round in the section above and not mention it again here.


Work that is needed by hosts in the summer in Zurich


What kinds of work are there in Zurich in autumn? Maybe it's harvest time, but do people need the help of foreigners for either cheap labour or expertise? This is the kind of thing we need to know here.


Skiing in Zurich - does it exist? Are there plenty of opportunities for people to get work in Zurich in the winter? What kind of skills are needed at this time of year? Please update this section and let fellow travellers know what you have learnt if you have worked in Zurich in the winter or if you are a Host and live here and can share your knowledge.


Locals are extremely opened to foreigners. It is a very multicultural city. The first language here is Swiss-German but everyone is bilingual, they speak French or English and sometimes both so it is very easy to get informations in and around.
