Swiss Market Report 2011

Download/ View PDF

The Swiss economy with low inflation and strong public sector finances emerged from the global recession in better shape that many of its eurozone neighbours. Growth in 2010, despite the strength of the Swiss Franc, was a highly respectable 2.6% and the economy is forecast to grow by 2.1% in 2011. Whilst the short term outlook is encouraging, the strength of the Swiss Franc, which in the face of global uncertainly has its safe haven status very much in tact, could take its toll.

The recovery in the Swiss economy is now broadly reflected in the Swiss corporate governance recruitment market. In Switzerland, as in other countries, there is a broad divide in the recruitment market between the financial services sector and the rest of industry and commerce. Whilst financial services recovered in early 2010, sustained demand from the rest of the economy did not become established until the second half of 2010. Currently in 2011 there is broad demand across the economy as the recruitment market returns to pre-recession levels of activity.

It is within this context that Barclay Simpson has produced its third Swiss Market Report. It takes a detailed look at the Swiss internal audit recruitment market and describes its unique features and various sectors. It reviews how the market has performed in the last year and is likely to perform in the year ahead.
