Switzerland can support individual applications for top management positions of political interest through lobbying at the final selection stages. To consider supporting an application, the FDFA requires a complete application file (job advertisement, application letter, CV).
In the case of elected positions, the relevant federal authorities will decide whether to submit an official candidacy on behalf of Switzerland and determine the scope of the election campaign if applicable.

The Centre for Information, Counselling and Training for Professions relating to International Cooperation (cinfo) can provide you with more information about joining international organisations and help in submitting applications for all career levels. To help with your application, cinfo provides certain services free of charge to Swiss applicants on behalf of the federal government.
