Coople is your legal employer and connects you with job opportunities. In order for us to do so, the first thing we need to do is to verify your identity and your work permit for Switzerland. We also need further personal information to register you for social security contributions and pay your wages correctly. Following, we provide you with a guideline on how to best provide this information in the Coople Jobs App and what we need them for exactly.


When opening the Coople Jobs App, you will find a banner at the top of your dashboard (🏠) that says: "Please complete your profile so that you can apply for jobs."

Tap on it to start a guided tour where you can fill in all the personal details we need, step by step. This banner will show as long as you need to fill in all the required information.

By the way: This guided tour will also start automatically, when you try to apply for your first Coople job, but still need to provide your personal information. (We recommend to take this way, as the user experience is better with a complete list of information that you have to provide, so you can do everything in one go.)


What information do I need to provide?

We need the following information to be able to connect you to flexible work:

  • Your nationality so that we know which right to work documents we need from you to check your permission to work in Switzerland.

  • Your identity document (ID/passport) so that we can verify your identity and work permit.

  • Your contact address so that we can create documents like your employment contracts and payslips.

  • Your OASI number (AHV) and civil status so that we can register you for social security contributions.

  • Your withholding tax details so that we can register you for withholding tax. (You only need to fill in this information if you are liable for withholding tax.)

  • Your payment details (bank account) so that we can transfer your wage to your account on time.

  • Your job profiles so that we can send you jobs that suit your profile. (If you apply to a job and have not added the fitting job profile to your Coople profile yet, this will happen automatically.)

As soon as you have entered all the information in your Coople profile, you will be able to apply for interesting jobs in our marketplace (🔍). Please remember to upload your up-to-date CV as well. We use your CV to check whether you have the required work experience for the selected job profiles and whether you qualify for the job you have applied for.

A good worker profile will increase your chances of getting hired. Have you been wondering what else you need to include in addition to your CV? Find out more in this step-by-step guide.
