The Federal Council decided on 27 May to reinstate the job registration requirement from 8 June. The Check-Up to see whether a vacancy needs to be registered will also apply again from 8 June. The list of occupation types that are subject to the registration requirement that was drawn up for 2020 will remain in force.
User registration through Job-Room is required to obtain full access to all services available through work.swiss.
User registration for work.swiss is done through eIAM, the federal government’s secure identity and access management system. Please note that as eIAM is provided by the Federal Office of Information Technology, Systems and Telecommunication (FOITT), the web page design will differ from that of work.swiss.
The hours of support for eIAM are Monday to Friday from 7am to 6pm.
