Bar Work – How to Get a Bar Job in Spain

So you’ve decided to move to Spain, but you are not sure what jobs are available.

An easy option for jobs abroad is a bar job (also known as bar work).

Bar jobs are an easy alternative to earning a comparatively good wage compared to other jobs in Spain, although the salary will be lower than that of our fellow European counterparts.

Pay and wages for bar jobs and bar work in Spain range from 4 Euros an hour to a maximum of 10 Euros an hour.

Please note also that the cost of living in Spain is not much lower than the rest of Europe so when you get a bar job you will just be surviving and making ends meet as your earnings are low.

There won’t be much money left over at the end of the month for luxuries so this is a job for the lifestyle rather than financial reward.job-spain-graphic

If you just want to be in Spain enjoying the quality of life it offers, then bar work is an easy answer to “how do I move to Spain and survive financially?”

If bar work sounds like too much hard work and make no mistake IT IS hard work, then check out our main page on jobs in Spain for English speaking people.

If you are feeling very confident and perhaps you already have prior experience then another option to being able to move to and live in Spain is to open your own bar in Spain or to buy a bar in Spain.

Summer Bar Jobs

Bar jobs in Spain are always readily available especially in the summer months and are mainly seasonal by nature. The tourist season starts in April or as soon as Easter.

The season ends at the end of October where the coastal resorts become sleepy little deserted places except some of the main resorts in the Spanish Canary Islands which because of their proximity to Africa means they have more of an all year round climate and tourism season.

Without doubt your best chance of picking up bar work and bar jobs in Spain is to look for summer bar work and summer jobs in Spain in the main tourist resorts, Spanish islands and cities such as Madrid and Barcelona which are full of visitors from the rest of Europe.

If you are wondering how old and what age do you have to be, to work in a bar, the answer is 18 years old.

Spain has thousands of miles of sun-drenched shores with many, many bars and restaurants therefore it should be easy to find employment although you will want to check with your employer that you will be offered a contract with medical insurance.

Many bars will only offer positions with part-time hours and no work contract which means you will be paid cash in hand with no entitlement to the Spanish national health system.

Bar Work – Hours & Pay

Expect to work long hard hours at bar jobs in Spain as well as very late hours – many bars stay open until two or three in the morning (every day). Also you need to factor in the siesta in the afternoon.

This kind of work can take its toll if you have a family or partner as you won’t be seeing much of them, on the other hand you can use your siesta time to have an afternoon at the beach.

Getting a bar job in Spain also helps pay your bills because most bar work means you will be fed with a meal during your working hours. If you are really lucky you might find a bar position with live-in accommodation included.

So how much can you expect to get paid per hour at a typical bar in Spain? In all honesty you will probably end up earning about five euros an hour working in a bar, although some bars will pay up to 8 euros an hour if you are fortunate.

Where To Find Work

So where can you find opportunities for bar work? Well to find available positions and openings look for bar jobs in Spain by looking online on the internet at the many job sites.

Also look in the many local papers many of which are on-line, or word of mouth. Most vacancies for bar jobs can only be found if you are here and you can just walk around towns and cities asking if they have any work available.

We are also starting a free listings section for job postings and vacancies so if you are searching for bar staff, email us and we will post it for free on this website.Interior of Taberna San Ysidro - Madrid, Spain

Most bar jobs in Spain will be found in the big tourist cities in Spain such as Madrid and Barcelona as well as the tourist resorts of the Costa del Sol i.e. Fuengirola, Marbella, Malaga, Benalmadena, Mijas and Torremolinos.

For the popular Costa Blanca, areas that would have plenty of bar work include Benidorm, Calpe, Moraira, Javea, Alicante, Torrevieja and surrounding areas such as Cabo Roig, La Zenia, Playa Flamenca and Punta Prima.

For the Costa Brava look for job opportunities in Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar.

The islands of Spain also have many bar jobs and work due to their popularity as tourist resorts and destinations. The most obvious places to look for bar work would be Ibiza, Lanzarote, Majorca (Mallorca), Canary Islands, Menorca and Tenerife.

Bar Jobs for English Speakers

Having some command of the Spanish language would be beneficial as even in the English and British bars you get a small number of Spanish customers.

Still if you don’t speak Spanish and you can only speak English then you should still find a bar job in Spain in one of the ex-pat bars most notably the British or Irish establishments. It won’t take too long to pick up enough Spanish to get by. You probably already know that cerveza means beer. Certainly looking for bar work is one of the best ways to find a job in Spain if you are an English speaking person with little grasp of Spanish.

Our advice and tips also apply if you searching for bar work in Spain and you are from Poland (Polish speakers), Holland (Dutch speakers), Germany (German speakers), Swedan (Swedish speakers), Russia (Russian speakers), Norway (Norwegian speakers), Romania (Romanian speakers), Morocco (Moroccan speakers), France (French speakers), Belgium (Belgian speakers), Ecuador (Ecuadorian speakers) or Columbia (Colombian speakers).

On doing your homework on the job market it will be easier to see exactly what your prospective employer is looking for. Bar tending, bar man, bar maid, waitress, waiter, hosting, dish washing, chef etc.

There are different aspects of bar jobs in Spain, so it would be good to know ahead of time what kind of bar job in Spain, you would be interested in and are suited for.

The advantages of taking bar jobs in Spain are that as a bar tender you get to meet many different people, can make great friends, learn to make fabulous drinks and cook many exciting dishes. Indeed for many people bar work and bar jobs are fun and not work at all!

I also worked in Chamonix for a season (2010-2011). I wouldn’t go as far as to say my Spanish is fluent but I am most definitely good enough to work a bar job.
