A combination of theory and practice. Our commercial apprenticeship.

At Credit Suisse, you can complete a commercial apprenticeship in any region in Switzerland. If you want to, you can also work towards your vocational baccalaureate at the same time – for example, in our new commercial apprenticeship model, the commercial apprenticeship with vocational baccalaureate focus*.

Once completed, you’ll earn a Certificate of Qualification of Vocational Education and Training in Banking from the Swiss Federation and, depending on the profile, a vocational baccalaureate.

* This focus is only offered in the Zurich region.

One apprenticeship. Many opportunities.

After the apprenticeship. Your career opportunities.

After your commercial apprenticeship, you will have exciting opportunities to continue your professional career with us – usually in one of the following positions:

  • Advising clients at the counter in our branches or by telephone in our digital banking department;
  • Assisting in client advice in the private or corporate client business;
  • As a specialist in the credit business or in other non-front office areas;
  • Advising clients at BANK-now or becoming an agent at Swisscard AECS GmbH, both of which belong to Credit Suisse;
  • Completing the vocational baccalaureate in parallel to your job – if you have not already – and then beginning full or part-time studies with a focus on banking at a university of applied sciences.

There are many more career opportunities – for example, in the bank's legal department (supplemented by internal training) or in various functions abroad.
