BRUSSELS, Belgium -- Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder has accepted a job as consultant for Ringier, the Swiss publishing company, the firm said Thursday.
Schroeder, succeeded by conservative Angela Merkel on Tuesday, quit his Bundestag seat on Wednesday.
He will take his new position in January, Ringier said in a statement.
Schroeder will be a personal consultant to company chief Michael Ringier on international politics, the Zurich-based company said.
There was no immediate comment from Schroeder, who has said he plans to resume practicing law and write a book about his political career.
Ringier has some of the largest-selling newspapers in Switzerland, including the tabloid Blick.
