I don't know if it's just a first impression and perhaps wrong but by a quick search on job serve for contracts Switzerland/Netherlands/Belgium seem to have a lot more opportunities than UK. Now, if you specify London then a long list of permie jobs is retrieved.

What happened to the contract market in UK?????? :confused:

Yes Switzerland is growing fast. There are some big companies moving out there from the UK.

Kraft foods is moving. It's come to something when the cost base in the UK is higher than CH!

I heard a rumour that ABN is recruiting big time but has no office space in UK so wants staff in Holland. But I heard another rumour that they are about to sack a few hundred.

No, they can't. They are smarter there.

In fact there are heaps of Indians working in Switzerland. It's very easy for them to get the visas.

There are a few (especially at the multinational banks) but not on the same scale as in the UK - i.e. visas aren't handed out like sweeties. It can be difficult enough for Aussies / Americans to work there, never mind other nationalities.

For EU citizens there are now no restrictions, in other words any company can recruit from the EU, and the work permit is automatic. In the past there were quotas.

I've spoken to plenty of Indians here, who are working for all sorts of companies. Its no harder for an Indian than it is for an American, and especially if its a temporary contract restricted for a few weeks.
