POSTED: 20 Sep 2023 JOB ID: ASOA30759



Our consultants have a wealth of experience finding roles for temps in Zurich, Geneva and across the country, making us one of the top temp agencies in Switzerland. Whether you’re looking for interim work for just a few weeks, fixed term for a year or more, or temp-to-perm roles to test the waters in a new industry, we can help.


If you are a citizen of EU/EFTA member states, you have the right to work in Switzerland. You can work without a residence permit for up to three months, or 90 days in a calendar year. More than that and you will need a contract of employment in order to register yourself and obtain a permit.

For citizens of countries outside the EU/EFTA who don’t already have an existing, valid permit, employers must apply for a work permit on your behalf before they can hire you.


Before applying for a temp role, you should update your CV to detail your most relevant experience and skills. Tailor your CV to suit the job requirements. For more information on how to apply for temp jobs, read our guide on CV tips.


FAQs about temping

Which temp jobs do you recruit?

We recruit for business support temp jobs in Zurich, Geneva and beyond, in addition to HR interim roles, private household temporary roles, family office positions, hospitality temp jobs, finance contracts and technology contract roles.

How do temp agencies work?

If you’re looking to sign up to a temp agency for temp work, submit your details or apply for a job on our website. Should your experience be relevant to the jobs we’re recruiting, we will invite you to meet with us for an initial registration interview to find out more about what you’re looking for. As we receive thousands of applications each week, unfortunately, we can’t get back to everyone. If you are able to accept our invitation to interview, however, we will also ask you to provide two sets of referee contact details. If you’ve noted that you’re open to temp and contract positions, we will call you if an opportunity becomes available.

During your temporary placement, you can submit and track your weekly timesheets in real time via our online timesheets portal. Through the portal, you can complete your timesheet at your convenience and submit your hours directly onto our payroll system.

Once submitted, the timesheet is sent to your authoriser to be approved; you’ll then receive an automated email to confirm that your timesheet has been accepted so you can be paid in the next weekly payroll run.

Do temp agencies pay holiday pay?

Yes, your hourly or daily rate will be made up of the basic gross rate, holiday entitlement, public holiday and if applicable, a 13th month salary.

How quickly can a temp agency find me a job?

It depends! Sometimes we place candidates into temporary roles on the same day we meet them. At other times it can be a little while before the right opportunity arises. If you can be flexible with your availability, hourly rate and job criteria, you are more likely to find a role sooner.

Should I quit my job for a temp job?

We have a number of temps on our books who work as full-time temps. If you’re interested in leaving your permanent position to pursue a career as a temp, it can be done – however your success will depend on a number of factors such as the wider job market, your experience and your long-term goals. Have a conversation with your consultant at the registration interview to get a better idea of what options may be available to you.

How do I find temp jobs?

Occasionally, our temp jobs are called in at the last minute, leaving us with limited time to advertise the role and call potential candidates in to interview. This means that we rely on a pool of reliable temps whom we are able to reach out to with immediate temporary requirements. If you’re registered with us, we recommend that you keep us updated on your availability and send us your updated CV. Flexibility is also key. The temps who are most often asked to return by companies are those who have proven their reliability for temporary assignments.

We specialise in temporary business support, HR, PA and executive assistant recruitment, advertising first-rate executive assistant roles, administrative assistant jobs in all major industries, as well as sought-after private household positions.
