Our ability to inspire trust and generate client satisfaction is a basic prerequisite for our long-term success. We can only achieve this if we have skilled, responsible and motivated employees.
Appealing Work Environment
The success of our company ultimately depends on the skills, experience and conduct of our employees. For our business to perform well, we must offer our clients best-in-class financial solutions and services. This goal can only be realized if we can attract and retain the most talented professionals in our role as an employer of choice. At Credit Suisse, we offer exciting careers, progressive employment conditions and wide-ranging training and development opportunities. As a result, our employees benefit from attractive long-term career prospects in an international working environment, helping us to retain their knowledge and experience within the bank and to derive maximum benefit from it in the interest of our clients.

Through this culture of sharing, we create opportunities for them to expand their skills, knowledge and networks across the bank, and to also enhance connectivity and collaboration across business lines. Our programs to support internal mobility include Internals First, an initiative that involves a proactive approach to contacting employees about internal opportunities, matching their skill sets to open roles across the organization. Career forums are also held regularly, providing insights into different business areas and career paths.
