Cosmopolitan, multilingual employees

Although French is the official language of Neuchatel, English and German - both compulsory at school - are commonly used in the workplace. With a cosmopolitan population, languages such as Italian, Spanish and Portuguese are also widely spoken.

Thanks to the free movement agreements concluded with the European Union, recruiting across borders is now a mere formality. This, coupled with the presence of several multinational companies in the region has fostered a dynamic economy with a strong focus on trade with international markets.



A network for recruiters


With an extensive network of partners in the State of Neuchâtel and beyond, the Service of the Economy  supports recruiters by strategically linking them with academic centers, vocational training schemes or with regional employment offices.


Support for training


Staff development often goes hand-in-hand with innovation, although this can come with costs. In certain circumstances, the canton can carry the financial burden of technical training, if it is a logical career development or employment transition. The result is a mutually beneficial and effective arrangement that not only helps businesses in Neuchâtel to develop, but increases the employability of the workforce.
