GENEVA, A HUB FOR
INTERNATIONAL
ORGANIZATIONS AND NGOS
Laurie Barnier (PGE 03), Disease Fund Manager, The
Global fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria
After graduating from NEOMA Business School, Laurie Barnier
studied for a Master's degree in political sciences at the Sorbonne. It
focused on development aid and humanitarian action. She then worked for
AFD in Niger and for the EU in Vietnam, before joining the Global Fund in
2017, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to improving health systems in
developing countries, especially Africa: " I initially came to Geneva for family
reasons. As the city isa central place for international organizations, it also
made sense career-wise. The recent need to support management of the
COVID pandemic in the world required to open up additional positions, both
at the Global fund but also at GAVI, the vaccine alliance " she mentions.
However, the competition is high, just as in other sectors: " There are many
high-profile individuals who are looking to resettle in Geneva, because of
the high salaries and the quality of life. It would also be a break from living
in difficult countries " she explains. Before finding her current position, she
worked as a consultant for the International Labor Organization and
OXFAM. These consulting jobs enabled her to access long-term employment
contracts afterwards. If languages skills are important to work in
international cooperation - English of course and German for a local Swiss
NGO - opportunities are to be found in a variety of positions - communications,
marketing, project management or finance - that NEOMA Almuni can
be interested in. However, if salaries are very competitive, they may be
slightly lower than in the private sector.
AN OLD-FASHIONED
APPROACH TO
BUSINESS
Laurie Gautier (PGE 12), founder of
Haisai digital company
WORK-LIFE BALANCE
Floria Migniot (PGE 10), Global content & DAM senior manager
at Hublot (LVMH)
After an experience in Repetto's marketing department in Paris, Floria
Migniot followed her husband in Switzerland in 2017, but she had a hard
time finding an opportunity in her line of work: " I searched for a job for
6 months then gave up becoming a dance teacher, one of my childhood
dreams " she reveals. After one year into her new career, she was contacted
by a headhunter. They offered her a job at Hublot: " By that time I had
realized teaching wasn't a good fit for me so I jumped on the occasion.
I was lucky because watchmaking is rather closed to those who don't
already work in the industry. By choosing to hire someone who was not
from the sector, Hublot made a daring choice that is not common " she
comments, though she feels the industry is slowly evolving: " Polite and
efficient colleagues, as well as worklife balance " are part of what she enjoys
about her life in Rolle, a small but international city located between Geneva
and Lausanne, on the Leman Lake shores. " People start work as early as
7.30 am but finish by 5.30 pm so you can spend time with your family. "
After living in Hong Kong, London
and Australia where she worked in
digital business transformation, Laurie
Gautier moved to Switzerland with her
husband five years ago: " When I
decided to go back to Europe, the
market for digital marketing jobs
seemed almost saturated to me,
whereas Swiss companies were
slightly behind in their digitalization
process and lacked resources and
talents in that field. My experience
enabled me to find a job easily " tells
the alumna, who was then hired by a
big agency. After developing her
network for a few years, she decided
to leave her job to launch Haisai, her
own agency, with her husband: " We
created our company in February
2020 so basically at the worst time to
start anything! But it turned out to be
a key moment to launch our business.
Everything got done remotely and
companies not only wanted but
needed to up their digital game. We
had a great first year and as we only
worked remotely, we ended up selling
our house and moving to Verbier in
the Swiss Alps. We are now doing
really well as we doubled our client
portfolio this year. " She says, whose
clients are mostly in the luxury sector.
Her recommendation to anyone, who
looks to open a company in the
country: " Switzerland can be quite
'old-fashioned' in business and sales.
Who you know and who you work
with will be key to your success... I
have even been told that I was doing
a good job for a French person " she
smiles.
