Hello

My family is Italian but I was raised in London - UK where I graduated in Business Management. My question is, can I get a job in Switzerland by speaking Native English and Portuguese? I can only understand italian I can`t really speak.

Please let me know that as I am eager to move. Thanks a lot.
