Are you an engineer or project manager?
Dear Ukrainian citizens
Switzerland has a long-lasting tradition of international help and assistance for persons in danger due to war or international crisis.
Our association, the Swiss Association of Consulting Engineers, which represents the independent Swiss engineering firms, is extremely sad and concerned about the war in Ukraine. We strongly condemn the aggression and are in thoughts with the Ukrainian people.
We are thankful that the Swiss Government acted quickly and granted the protection status S to all refugees from Ukraine in a very pragmatic and non-bureaucratic way. We sincerely hope that Ukrainian refugees find safety and calm in Switzerland.
The protection status S also includes the right to work in Switzerland. No waiting period is imposed.
The member firms of our association share our concerns and are dedicated to offer short- or medium-term employment, internships, or similar occupation for Ukrainian refugees. Particularly, but not exclusively, persons with experience and knowledge in engineering, architecture, construction site management, project management, environment, planning etc., including civil engineering draughtsmen / civil engineering draughtswomen, are highly welcome to pronounce their interest in a Swiss employment.
The firm listed below are happy to receive any declaration of interest. They are willing to seek possibilities for employment in their respective firms, including potential further assistance (language courses, assistance with children etc.). Please feel free to contact the respective contact persons directly.
To usic member firms: If you wish to participate and to be listed on this website, please contact usic via E-Mail.
