WORK PERMITS

As an international organisation in Switzerland, we are able to recruit candidates from any country in the world. Our international employees will obtain a “Carte de légitimation” work permit that is tied to your employment at Gavi. In Washington DC, you will need a US passport or Green Card, although in some instances we may be able to apply for a H1-B visa.

PAID TIME OFF

All full-time employees receive 30 days of annual leave per calendar year. In addition, we observe 10 national official holidays that depend on the office location. Following the birth or adoption of a child, we offer 16 weeks of primary and 4 weeks of secondary parental leave.
