Jungfrau Railways – speed networking with a difference: Employee recruitment on the chairlift

Jungfrau Railways is breaking new ground in employee recruitment: On Sunday, 18 February 2024, those who were interested had the chance to find out more about Jungfrau Railways as an employer during their winter sports day in the Jungfrau Ski Region. The first “speed networking event” on the Wixi chairlift was very well received.

At the valley station of the Wixi chairlift, for once it wasn’t a single line to the next free chair, but a career line. This gave winter sports enthusiasts the opportunity to find out about the various jobs at Switzerland’s most important mountain railway operator during the 6-minute ride on the chairlift with Jungfrau Railways employees.

“It’s important for us to break new and uncharted ground and appeal directly to people who are already travelling in our region and on our railways”, explains Jungfrau Railways Director Urs Kessler. True to the motto: came as a guest, stayed as an employee. Those who wanted to talk more about it had the chance to do so in the afternoon in the VIP lounge in the Grindelwald Terminal.

After the first speed networking event, Jungfrau Railways will offer further events in this or a similar form throughout the year.
