Job advertisement

If there is more than one location mentioned in the advert, for example “Bern or Zurich”, you can choose your job location. You will learn more in the interview. Also note that the advert will include information about whether and how often you can work from home.

If the job advertisement is no longer showing on our job portal, this means it has been filled. Tip: subscribe to our Job-Mail to keep up to date with all our latest vacancies.

Informal language is standard practice at Swisscom. We are all on first-name terms with one another; from apprentices through to the CEO. This means that, when writing to the contact person mentioned in the advert, for example, you should address them by their first name. This also applies when talking to them on the phone and at the job interview.

In our advertisements, we try to describe the requirements of the vacancy in as much detail as possible. You can then use the Skill Check to work out whether the position is a good fit for you and your strengths. The Skill Check will only take a few minutes. If you satisfy most of the requirements in the checklist, we welcome your application.


Fantastic, that’s what we like to hear! Check out our job portal. You’ll find lots of exciting vacancies waiting just for you. Use the search box or filter to find the position you are looking for. If a particular job piques your interest, click on the vacancy and complete the Skill Check. If this indicates that you are a good fit for the job, select one of the application options. See Your application for more information.

Immediately following the submission of your application, you will receive an automatic confirmation of receipt by e-mail. It will also include the reference number of the vacancy and the name of your contact person for any queries.

Have you checked your spam folder? It is also possible that you could have mistyped the e-mail address. In this case, please get in touch with us via our contact page.

Remember: sometimes, less is more.

Once you have submitted your application, you will be sent a login for your personal candidate profile by e-mail. You can then log into your profile at any time to see the current status of your application.

Speculative application

Job interview

Depending on the position you are applying for, you will have a number of interviews; the first usually in the form of a telephone interview or Web conference. During these interviews, we are looking to find out if you have the necessary qualifications and skills for the advertised position and if you are a good fit for Swisscom. We will ask you various questions according to the job profile and the role. We are interested in your career to date and would like to know more about specific work situations, the way you work and how you interact with customers and colleagues to gain the most rounded picture of you possible. In the interviews, you will meet future managers and/or team members and will also have an opportunity to ask them questions.
