At our world-class science and technology facility in Visp, we are developing products that will improve the lives of millions of people. This means that when you join us, you will experience the best of both worlds. A fulfilling job and career with the amazing lifestyle that the Swiss Alps can offer.

Rewards and Benefits

We want everyone who works at Lonza to be proud of their work, take ownership of their responsibilities and drive their career forward. In return, we offer competitive rewards packages. These include insurance and pension schemes, plus a holiday allowance that far exceeds Swiss legal requirements.

We also provide a wide range of lifestyle, family and leisure benefits, including family allowance, childcare support, discounted holiday apartments, discounted admissions and tickets, discounted phone contracts, travel allowances and subsidized meals at our employee restaurant.


Taking time off on a regular basis helps to recharge batteries and maintain a positive work-life balance too. This is why we offer holiday allowances that far exceed the basic Swiss legal requirement of 20 days holiday per year:


  • Age 20 and under: +10 days
  • Age 21 to 49: +5 days
  • Age 50 to 59: +10 days
  • Age 60 and over: +15 days

Work-Life Balance

Striking a perfect balance between your professional and personal life can be a challenge. At Lonza, we strive to create a healthy work environment. Specifically, we offer:

Parental Leave

We offer our employees fully paid parental leave. Our maternity leave policy includes 14 weeks at 100% compensation (instead of the 80% required by law). This increases to 16 weeks after three years’ service, if returning to work. Paternity leave is offered for 10 days at 100% compensation, giving fathers the opportunity to enjoy some time off work with their newborn.

Transport Connections

Commuting has a major impact on our well-being and job satisfaction. We encourage our employees to travel to and from work using public transport, as an easy and environmentally friendly way of commuting. In return, we will fund 75% of employee public transport travel costs from home to work in the form of a travel allowance.

Development and Training

Continuous personal development is key to the success of our future at Lonza. From learning new skills to career progression, we encourage our employees to work with their managers to develop their experience by taking part in:

  • On-the-job training
  • Structured learning opportunities including virtual reality (VR) training and LinkedIn Learning for Business
  • Mentoring and coaching programs
  • Personal development plans
  • Global experience network

At Lonza, we recognize that relocating for a new job is a big decision that can bring disruption and increased costs. We offer relocation support to help make relocating a smoother and easier process.

Work Permits

To join Lonza Visp, you need the right to live and work in Switzerland and have a valid work permit. If you are a citizen of an EU or EFTA country, we can take care of the Swiss work permit application on your behalf. If you are joining from outside Europe and non-continental Europe, your work permit can be arranged by our external relocation partner.

Relocation Assistance

The relocation package we offer depends on your current place of residence and the organizational level at which you join. In many cases relocation allowance includes costs such as travel, household removal, accommodation search and any other expenses incurred in connection with moving home.
