We appreciate your interest in joining our team. To give your application the best chance of success, please follow the steps outlined below: 

Our application process

1. Get your documents ready 

Make sure you’ve got your CV, reference letter and other documentation to hand before you start your application. If anything’s missing, we might ask you for it during the application process – so make sure you’ve got everything we’d need.  Think about your desired start date, salary expectations and reason for applying to Swiss Life Asset Managers. A cover letter is optional – but a short, snappy letter reflecting your passion for the role can help you stand out. 


2. Use your network to gain insights 

Connections can be a real asset during your job search. Try to leverage your network to learn about Swiss Life Asset Managers as an employer. Check if you know someone at the company who can provide first-hand information or even offer a recommendation: this personal touch can significantly enhance your application. 

3. Submit your application with care 

Once you’ve prepared your documents and tapped into your network, click the ‘Apply’ button and upload your documents. If you’ve been recommended by one of our employees, you’ll receive a separate link. The application tool contains a questionnaire covering your preferred start date, desired working hours, salary expectations and motivation for joining Swiss Life Asset Managers. Be truthful: this information is crucially important. Carefully review all your answers before hitting the ‘Submit’ button. Once your details have been approved, you’ll receive a confirmation email – marking the next step in your journey towards joining our team. 


4. Receive our feedback 

Once we’ve reviewed your documents in depth, we’ll contact you to provide feedback and guide you through the next steps. Typically, the response time ranges from two to three weeks. Regardless of the outcome, you’ll be emailed with an update on your status in our selection process. 

5. Get to know each other at interview 

If you’re successful, you’ll move to the next stage: our two- or three-round interview process. The initial round may be conducted either in person at our premises or virtually via Teams. You’ll be able to meet the hiring manager, tell us about yourself and have a chat about the role. Subsequent rounds may involve case study assessments and meetings with other managers, stakeholders and peers. These interactions explore how well you’d fit with our company, allowing you to showcase your skills and the contribution you could make. Additionally, discussions with our HR team will cover aspects such as compensation, benefits, start date and work schedule. 


6. Take the next step: join us or keep in touch 

If you meet our expectations  – and vice versa – we may make you an offer and express our enthusiasm in welcoming you to our team. If you’re not an ideal fit for the current role, we may ask if we can include you in one of our candidate pools for potential future opportunities (this is optional).
