Work and Jobs in Spain 2015/2016

This page is aimed at helping English-speakers trying to find work in Spain with the emphasis on finding a job in Spain in 2016.

You are most likely from overseas such as the United Kingdom, America, Australia or another European country and you are planning on moving to Spain.

If possible you want to get a job offer before you make your move and relocate.

So basically you are an expat looking for popular jobs vacancies in Spain and you are regarded as a foreigner in Spain.

The video below explains the differences between working in Spain compared to elsewhere:

We like to think of ourselves as the complete resource for finding work because with us you can list your jobs wanted or your vacancies if you are an employer.

Basically we are a job centre, employment agency and recruitment agency rolled into one.

Staff Required? Employers – please list your jobs in Spain below – IT IS FREE!!

Please leave your details below in the comments box if you WANT TO WORK IN SPAIN!!

Even better is to leave your comments on the most relevant job-specific page we have – see list on right.

Spanish Unemployment is Over 27% – Can I Really Find Work?

When looking for job opportunities in Spain you may need to lower your expectations of what type of work you can find.

We know you want to find the best paying jobs and no doubt you have dreamed of a better quality of life but you must realise in advance that unemployment is high in Spain at over 27%.

Job opportunities are limited and much lower paid than in Northern Europe and the USA. Working in Spain can be very hard and low-paid.

If you are moving to Spain and looking for a job then you are immediately at a disadvantage due to the language barrier. Our immediate advice is to learn some basic Spanish.

Even if you speak fluent Spanish (Castellano) many regions of Spain have their own dialects – for example in the Costa Brava (Barcelona) area they primarily speak Catalan.

Even if you are fluent in the language, in Spain most jobs are given to locals who are often close family members or relatives.

Competition for a job with a contract, which comes with an entitlement to medical care, is intense and employers can afford to be very choosy.

There are many illegal immigrants from North Africa and Eastern Europe competing for low-paid, menial job positions.

As a foreigner competing against Spanish nationals for jobs you are immediately at a disadvantage when looking for work and certainly it would be best to concentrate on looking for English speaking jobs in Spain.

The most common types of English jobs on offer will be bar jobs, construction and buildings jobs, sales jobs and jobs in the travel and tourist sector such as hotel jobs, driving jobs and catering jobs.

At least if you are from the United Kingdom, as an European Union citizen you won’t have the need to obtain a work permit and apply for a residencia, something which many Americans, Canadians and Australians who want to work in Madrid and Barcelona have to overcome first. Also most UK qualifications will also not be recognised in Spain.

Job Search by Regions

If you know exactly where in Spain you wish to search for situations vacant, then you can search by regions in which we have specific pages on the most popular towns and cities.

These guides give you an idea as to what sort of jobs you can expect to find advertised as well as an overview of the town or city – after all – while finding work is important, it is also just as important to choose somewhere good in which to live in which you can enjoy a better quality of life.

Spain is a large country and there are very big differences between the various regions.

The Costa del Sol is probably the best area of mainland Spain to search for jobs. This very developed coast is the most popular area of Spain for tourism and has a large expatriate population and arguably the best climate in Spain which makes it a lovely place to live.

The very good weather contributes towards a longer tourist season which is a help because these do tend to be the most popular types of jobs and include work in hotels, cleaning villas and apartments as well as the usual bar and restaurant type positions.

Our most popular Costa del Sol locations for finding work include: Marbella, Malaga, Fuengirola, Nerja, Torremolinos and Benalmadena. There are also plenty of other smaller towns and resorts along the Costa del Sol but they are very much smaller places with fewer opportunities. This is also a good area for Spanish golf jobs such as caddies and golf pros.

Slightly less popular are the Costa Blanca and Costa Brava areas which tend to comprise a series of former fishing villages with good sandy beaches but less job possibilities.

The best places to find jobs on the Costa Blanca include Torrevieja, Benidorm and Alicante while on the Costa Brava the extremely popular tourist resort of Lloret de Mar is a good choice as is Tossa del Mar, Sitges and Salou.

The best areas in Spain to find jobs for professionals and executives would be the major cities of Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia.

In these Spanish cities you will find offices of major multi-national companies. There are good opportunities for working here in IT as computer jobs do not require many Spanish skills.

If you are searching for summer and seasonal work then look at the islands of Spain which has more of an all year round season due to better weather and climate. This would apply more to the Canary Islands than the Balearic Islands as the Canaries are closer to Africa than mainland Spain.

If you want long-term work in Spain and not just seasonal work look to the Canary Islands of Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria (with the most popular resort being Playa del Ingles).

The Balearic Islands are also very popular especially Ibiza and Majorca/Mallorca (with the most popular resort for jobs being Magaluf).

Ibiza and Mallorca are full of possibilities for jobs as holiday reps, bar jobs, dancers, pr jobs, DS’s, waiters, waitresses, chefs, restaurant jobs, hotel jobs and many other tourism related situations vacant.

The islands are also good for water sports and marine jobs such as dive instructors, windsurfing teachers, sailing, crewing and boat maintenance.

If you are searching for work in the year 2016, be sure to subscribe to our latest job alerts by putting your name and email address into the special newsletter box (top right of page).

Spanish Job Regulations – Visas and N.I.E. Number

Do I Need a Visa?

If you are from a European Union country you are fortunate that you are entitled to work in Spain without applying for a visa. Other foreign nationals such as Americans, Canadians and South Americans must get a visa in advance of their stay in Spain which will last three months.

Do I Need a N.I.E. Number?

Many people in Spain are employed illegally, without a contract and therefore do not need a NIE number. This number is your tax identification number in Spain (Número de Identificación de Extranjeros).

To get an N.I.E. number in Spain, go to local police station or social security office and fill out the necessary forms. Some basic details are required such as address, name, passport number etc. Obviously the form is in Spanish. You should be issued with a temporary card on the spot.

Helpful information on getting NIE and residency in Spain.

Salaries and Pay in Spain – Employment Conditions and Working Hours

We are always being asked – what are the best paid jobs in Spain, what job offers are available and how much can I earn in Spain?

It is generally recognised that wages and salaries in Spain are lower than most other European countries however the cost of living is also comparatively lower.

The Spanish also tend to work very long hours due to the traditional siesta break in the middle of the daytime.

Always try to get the job that comes with an official working contract as this entitles you to state health care. With a contract your employer will have to contribute social security payments on your behalf. The only other way you will be entitled to free health care is if you become self-employed and pay into the social security system yourself.

For example if you have a salary of £30,000 and you find an equivalent job position in Spain you may be paid about €20,000 – and although the cost of living in Spain is lower – it isn’t that much lower!

If you are in a legal job your employer will deduct national insurance (social security) and tax from salaries.

Not only do jobs in Spain pay less you also tend to work longer hours. Most jobs start at around 9am some 10am with a long lunch break of two hours before resuming until 7pm or 8pm.

While you may have a long lunch hour for what is known as siesta time – if you have a young family then that is no consolation as you won’t see them much until the weekends.

It’s an unfortunate fact that many people who come to Spain searching for employment, a job and a better quality of life end up finding a job that is low paid and comes with longer working hours than they used to work back home.

Many people end up disillusioned and end up leaving Spain for financial reasons.

Be prepared to be flexible and completely change career direction. Most job vacancies are found through word of mouth and in local newspapers.

You will find the best possibilities for finding English jobs would be in the coastal areas which have large expat populations and therefore companies catering to the needs of these expats.

These areas primarily are the Costa del Sol (especially Malaga, Marbella, Nerja, Mijas, Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Torremolinos areas) and the Costa Blanca (Alicante, Torrevieja, Benidorm jobs, Calpe, Javea, Moraira and Denia areas).

To give you an idea of the most popular areas of Spain that people speaking English are seeking and searching for work – we get a lot of people emailing us asking where they can find job vacancies in Benidorm, Calpe, Torrevieja, Alicante, Malaga, Murcia, Marbella, Fuengirola, Benalmadena, Estepona, Torremolinos, Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia, Lloret de Mar and Tossa del Mar.

These areas are the most popular for expat jobs, so look for jobs in Costa Blanca and jobs in Costa del Sol where most expats live. Also look at the slightly less popular areas of Costa Brava, Costa Almeria and Costa de la Luz and many people live in Spain but go across the border into Gibraltar each day to work.

Expat Jobs

Other typical jobs for English speaking people you are likely to find would be jobs that cater to the large expat population in Spain, these include: pool cleaners, translators, beauty therapists, interior designers, singers, dancers, entertainers, gardening jobs, villa cleaning jobs, bar jobs and bar work, hairdressing jobs, shop assistants, cashiers and retail work in English and British goods shops, graduate jobs, taxi service, driving jobs including removals, restaurant jobs such as chefs, waiters and waitresses, fitness jobs, beautician jobs, pet care jobs, personal trainers, health care assistants, voluntary jobs at charity shops, computer services, business services such as graphic design, computer repair, contractors, babysitting, nanny jobs, au pair jobs, child care jobs, carer jobs, housekeeping, finance jobs, security jobs, accounting jobs, mechanics, insurance sales positions, hospitality jobs, customer service jobs, there are many English newspaper and magazines requiring writers and sales jobs in Spain etc – we hope this list gives you some idea of the types of jobs in Spain that are the most likely possibilities when you are job searching.

There are now many expat radio stations and newspapers in Spain so these businesses are looking for media people as DJ’s, presenters, writers, journalists, web design, photographers and sales positions selling advertising space.

One of the problems with jobs in Spain is the seasonal aspect – for example getting holiday jobs and summer jobs in Spain such as bar work in Spain or being a waiter or waitress is fine in the July and August but come October you may find you are out of a job!

Still if you are a student these jobs could be great fun over the summer. Many of these jobs will be on a part time basis.

7 Top Tips For Finding Work

  1. Have at least six months money as savings to live on while you try finding work in Spain.
  2. Learn as much Spanish as possible BEFORE you move to Spain as this massively increases your chances of finding job opportunities.
  3. Jobs for English speakers are limited so be prepared to turn your hand to anything to get a foothold in Spain and accept any jobs that are available.
  4. Be prepared to work much longer hours as jobs in Spain start earlier and finish later.
  5. If you are looking for work in Spain for English speakers be prepared to work for a lot less than you are used to as wages, job benefits and perks are much lower in Spain.
  6. Learn a new skill, especially something practical and use it to get a job or start your own business.
  7. If you have a skill or vocation, consider starting your own business in Spain, then you are in control. Also consider working from home. Most expats end up self-employed (becoming an autonomo) in order to earn enough money to survive in Spain.

Useful Resources for Finding Work

You will find plenty of professional jobs advertised on websites such as ours. Sadly, for most of the tourism jobs you will actually need to be here in Spain in the resorts and ask around going from bar to bar or from restaurant to restaurant in order to find work.

Be prepared to be flexible and completely change career direction. Most job vacancies are found through word of mouth and in local newspapers.

So where else can you find job vacancies, openings and postings? Try reading the classifieds sections of expat newspapers and contact recruitment agencies, job centres, human resources, or employment agencies. Here are some useful sources that we know of:

The major newspapers have job classified listings:

Costa Blanca News (English expat news).

Sur newspaper in English (covers the popular Costa Del Sol region of Spain).

El Pais (national Spanish newspaper).

The British Chamber of Commerce in Spain lists international companies operating in Spain.

Empresas de Trabajo Temporal (ETT) are recruitment agencies in Spain – mostly work of a temporary contract nature. Mostly professional and admin vacancies.

Global jobs website Monster has a specific Spanish online version.

Info Jobs – Website with thousands of Spanish jobs online. InfoJobs is the leading online job opportunities in the Spanish market, both for the number of visitors to its website and the volume of jobs listed. – Spain’s leading job search site for executive jobs, director jobs, Spain recruitment, bank jobs, IT jobs and travel jobs starting from €60,000.

  18. Hi all,

    Never really thought about moving to Spain, until recently due to our recent bad weather. And I thought do I really want to spend another winter here in over crowded, rude, expensive, cold south east England? I’m 46 and have no assets or ties. Places I fancy most are Galicia, Segovia, Murcia, Almeria, Granada and Malaga. I work in the plant hire industry at the moment as a small engine/tool technician, though also I did obtain my TEFL cert in 2006 which was a weekend course. Suppose in many ways now work is getting more limited for would be expats with limited Spanish. Though I am starting to learn Castillian and Galician (Gallego).

  51. Isabelle says:

    Hi, i am a an English female looking for some seasonal work during the winter in a bar/hotel.
    I speak moderate Spanish and fluent English, i have bar-tending experience and experience in the hospitality industry.
    I am looking for work in the canaries, or any resort that is lively during the winter season, i am looking to start during September, and end mid April.

  52. It would be in the best interest for all those who are planning or thinking of relocating to Spain in search of Jobs. At current situation one cannot find a job since the unemployment rate touched to 27% and 58% aged between 16-26.

    Although many would suggest to learn the language but in reality it is nothing but just an excuse. Even if you speak Spanish well it does not guarantee you a job. REASONS – the Spaniards themselves cannot find jobs in Spain, thousands are moving to other European countries looking for jobs, secondly, then they would ask for work experience, thirdly, there is no longer entry level jobs for graduates, in fact they can only be offered internships but a handful are available and you would find for one position 500 people applied. The entry level position are mostly now given to people who have experience of more than 5-10 years. Yes, it sounds horrific and terrible but this is the reality.

    According to my analysis it would take Spain around 12-15 years to recover from this hideous recession and most importantly they have to change their MENTALITY. Through their life they have always emphasized on Spanish and now a days even an engineer or doctor cannot speak basic level English. Why am I saying it ? Simple and easy, Spain could have had lots of Multinational companies operating in different cities but again due to their Mentality foreign companies are reluctant to invest in Spain. Things would have been different for them and people in Spain would have had the urge to learn and speak English but in reality it is totally opposite.

    English is not spoken or taught just because it is used in the US or UK but rather it is an international language and this is perhaps the best solution in terns of doing business. Even if you go to China you would find that almost every speaks Mandarin but they do have a good grasp on English and they are doing business and communication in English. Think about the Richest countries in the world like Saudi Arabia, Qatar and even United Arab Emirates, their mother-tongue is Arabic but when it comes to business they always prefer to be executing them in English.

    Spain is perhaps the 2nd most beautiful country after France and they have abundant talents and it could be utilized but only if the mentality of the Spaniard changes. I wish them all the best and hopefully they would recover soon and would create jobs for the so called LOST GENERATION.

    Learning a language is not a simple joke. It takes huge effort, patience and most importantly age plays a vital role. One cannot expect someone above 30 to have a good understanding of the language within few months. Even if you consider Spaniards living in Australia or New Zealand, despite living their for 10 years still they find it difficult and their level of English is still considered Below Standard but HEY! still they are working right ? English is perhaps the most difficult language to speak but one does not needs to be proficient in order to be a good speaker because it can be understood by a native or normal speaker whereas languages like Spanish, German or even French, if you are not highly proficient then it would be quite difficult to make others understand. I hope this would be an informative info for all those to get the real picture rather than fake hopes.

The great thing is my boyfriend has bar work experience and I have waitressing experience. I would really appreciate it if anyone could help as I really don’t want to miss out on any opportunities that arise for next year! We have no qualms on where we work as we would like to see as much of the world as possible. Please drop me an email with any information that could be helpful!
    Many Thanks,

    • Hi ya Emma, in my opinion, any Canary Island could be perfect, wheather, money and many English customers, on theother hand, South ( from Málaga to the right hand side, all coast have a lot of English touris as on the East like ( from the Almería to Barcelona ) Both region as i had mention are on the coast and were even during winter time, many English people scape from the Uk´s snowing/rain.
      The life in the areas i had mention are more common to the perfect weather for mi, not getting so down like UK and always nice time to enjoy during day/nigth time seatting in a terrace with your glass of wine.
      I´m spanish, i live closer to Madrid, I love Spain, but I would like to say is not Wonderland, the cost of live is so different than the Uk life, but your bank account is not getting to much at the end of the month.
      For example part time job could be around 500€ monthly and full time a 1.000€, to let a flat maybe 300€ it´s depends many things (area, facilities, bus, supermarket, shops) and houses over 400€, al rents here in spain are monthly. If you bing your car here, remember you are allow to drive the first 6 months, after that you must need to sell your car in UK and buy other spanish, here the second hands cars are not expenses.
