    Nat said it succinctly. 800 a day is standard. 1200 a day all in rate is bloody good. Zurich taxes lower then Geneva

    1500 is consultancy money. Don’t even embarrass yourself asking for that as a one man gig

    Englishforum.ch if you want to get slated for asking can I I live on 300k chf a year as a single man in canton zug

    By consultancy You mean contract? It is 6 months contract indeed.

    Nope a consultancy is not an individual contractor...
    merely at clientco for the entertainment

    It's 6-7 years since I contracted for a pharma which had a Swiss operation that I visited fairly regularly. Others who have more recent experience are probably a better guide but I remember seeing a very similar perm role to my then niche role which was offering something like 75% more than the UK equivalent perm salary.

    Have you thought about asking them for an offer based on your experience?
    At least that way you know the bottom price so don’t need to embarrass yourself.
    That's about £1250 a day? Sounds a tad optimistic. I had a junior support analyst/patching engineer working for me a while back and he wasn't even paid £35k salary...

    In Zurich any day rate looks low once you settle in there. Do all the maths to ensure you get a take home equivalent to UK take home and then add 50% extra to that and even then it might be on the lower side.

    That’s minimum wage isn’t it? Or near as damn it. Might as well work in a bar and at least get tips.

    If you're referring to the guy who worked for me and not someone who might earn £1250/day in Zurich, then to be fair, he was only about 22 and a few months out of a junior desktop support role. He's progressed his career a lot since, more than if he had worked in a bar!

    Thumbs up

    when I worked in zurich , I calculated that 800chf/day was equivalent to £350/day in UK from the savings perspective.
