Commercial apprenticeship

A springboard into banking

Start a commercial apprenticeship! Learn in a well-founded commercial apprenticeship, gain practical experience, and work in a team that encourages you.

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 prefer to pursue an apprenticeship that will end with a Certificate of Qualification of the Swiss Federation and a Federal Vocational Baccalaureate qualification, there are also development opportunities available for you outside of the banking sector. In Zurich, you can also select the "commercial apprenticeship with vocational baccalaureate focus*" model. This apprenticeship begins with an attractive and varied initial full-time training year.

At you will find a wealth of information relating to occupational profiles, job applications, apprenticeship placements, salaries, training, the Federal Vocational Baccalaureate, and careers.

One apprenticeship. Many opportunities.

After the apprenticeship. Your career opportunities.

Exciting development opportunities await you once you have completed your banking apprenticeship. The bank offers professional career paths in various areas:

  • Digital client advisory services or assistance in the private or corporate client business, including preparation for the SAQ client advisor certification.
  • Working at BANK-now or at Swisscard AECS GmbH (both part of Credit Suisse).


  • Becoming a specialist in the credit business or in other non-front-office areas (e.g. Compliance).
  • Working in a role abroad.

With the Federal Vocational Baccalaureate, you study at a university of applied sciences either on a full-time basis or alongside your professional duties, earning a bachelor's degree at the end. You can also progress to studying at university by taking the additional "Passerelle" examination.
