We are standing with Ukraine
Our services free of charge to support refugees from Ukraine arriving in Switzerland.
As more and more refugees from Ukraine are reaching Switzerland in search for protection, we have decided to offer our support. Thanks to the Swiss Government, Ukraines will receive a special status allowing them to settle down and work in Switzerland (see below). As such, we want to offer our help with what we know best: connecting female (tech) talents with companies committed to increase diversity.

Further important informtion
Protection status S for Ukrainian citizens
Under protection status ’S’, the persons concerned receive an S permit. This is limited to a maximum of one year, but can be extended. After five years, persons in need of protection may receive a B residence permit, which is valid until the temporary protection is lifted.
Persons who are granted protection status S may travel abroad and return to Switzerland without a travel permit. They may engage in gainful employment (including self-employment) without a having to wait a certain period to do so.
Work permit for Ukrainian citizens
With the protection status ‘S’, refugees from Ukraine can take up gainful employment in Switzerland. In order for the refugee to be admitted to gainful employment, the employer must submit an application to the cantonal labour market authority (in the canton of deployment).
