Following publication of the latest Universum survey, highlighting 2020’s most attractive employers according to students in Switzerland, ESA is proud to be ranked among the top 100 employers, at position number 5 in the category for engineering and 9 for natural sciences.

“With many careers events currently suspended due to COVID-19, there have been fewer opportunities this year to reach out to students and professionals. As a result, the good news that ESA has been ranked among the top 100 employers by students in Switzerland is very welcome and we are proud that ESA continues to be seen as a an attractive employer by Swiss talent.” said Zineb Elomri, Talent Acquisition Specialist.

Although ESA does not have an operating base within the country, Switzerland is one of the founding members of the European Space Agency and many Swiss colleagues work in the different ESA locations across Europe.
