“Switzerland Faces Critical Workforce Shortages in Key Sectors, Offering Opportunities for Foreign Professionals”

Switzerland is currently experiencing a significant shortage of skilled workers in various key sectors, as highlighted in the 2023 European Network of Employment Services (EURES) Report.

 This shortage is particularly prevalent in fields such as healthcare, engineering, IT, education, and the justice sector.

Specific professions facing shortages in Switzerland include environmental engineers, civil engineers, mining engineers, metallurgists, and other engineering roles. In the IT sector, there is a demand for computer network professionals, systems administrators, database designers and administrators, applications programmers, and software developers.

Healthcare professions such as health professionals, optometrists, ophthalmic opticians, physiotherapists, pharmacists, dentists, midwives, nursing professionals, and generalist medical practitioners are also in urgent need. Additionally, there is a demand for special needs teachers and university/higher education teachers in the education sector, as well as judges and lawyers in the justice field.

Switzerland, like Ireland and Norway, relies heavily on foreign-trained doctors and nurses to fill these gaps in the healthcare sector. The increasing demand for skilled labor suggests that opportunities for foreign professionals in these fields are likely to expand in the future.
