Helpers provide great support for the Centre during the busy times or special events, working very closely with the Short Term Staff and Long Term Staff.

Line manager

The line manager for this position is one of the Senior Leadership Team members of the Centre. Daily work is regularly supervised by Long Term Staff from different teams.

Team management

Helpers will have regular contact with other members of the Short and Long Term Staff team and it is essential to create a good working relationship and honest communication with them. Helpers must understand, respect and follow current KISC Staff rules and regulations during their entire stay.


Accident Insurance (provided by the Centre): Everyone is insured for accidents, both work and non-work related while working at KISC. Dental treatment is only covered if the damage was caused by an accident.

If you are accepted as a Helper, we strongly recommend that you arrange your own private travel insurance to cover sickness, routine dental treatment, travel to and from Kandersteg, and other cases/material that you consider important, as this is not provided by the Centre.

Visa Support

VISA: in the case you need a visa to enter Switzerland, we will support you with visa support letter in an early stage before May 2023. If you are accepted, please send a visa support request to 2023@kisc.ch.


If a helper would like to stay longer than the agreed amount of time (listed in Benefits), they must pay for accommodation and food at ex-staff prices. After this period they would also lose the benefits of being KISC Helpers.
