Hotel Jobs Ibiza – Where to Find Hospitality & Hotel Work

Many people are searching for work in a hotel in Ibiza in order to be able to live and work on the island in the summer of 2014.

We get a lot of enquiries from students who would like to work in Ibiza but the reality is that of the few Spanish hotel jobs in Spain there are, they usually tend to be permanent full time positions.

Additionally, the Balearic island of Ibiza in Spain isn’t the best place to look for hotel work simply because some of the other islands and mainland tourist resorts are more suited towards package holidays and therefore these destinations will likely have more hotel job opportunities for English-speaking people.

Hotel Ibiza (image hosted by images.hostelworld.com)Suggestions include the major Canary Islands of Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria, fellow Balearic island of Majorca and on the mainland, Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Benidorm.

On this page we will list actual vacancies for hotel jobs in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

If you are a job seeker you also have the opportunity to leave your contact details and positions that you seek in the hospitality sector, also at the bottom of the page.

Types of Hotel Jobs

Receptionist. Working on reception in one of the many major hotels in Ibiza requires you to be multilingual. Languages you should speak would be Spanish, English and at least one other such as German or French.

Chambermaids. Cleaning the rooms and performing the changeover once guests have left is a very necessary and manually intensive job so of course there are many chambermaids employed on Ibiza.

Unfortunately many tend to be women from North Africa and South America such as Moroccans, Algerians and Colombians who are prepared to work for cash without an official contract for extremely low rates of pay.

Fortunately if you come from an EU country you will not need a visa to work in Ibiza. You will however need to go to the nearest police station or social security office to get what is known as your N.I.E. number which is a tax identification number that you need to be able to obtain employment.

Entertainers. The biggest hotels hold nightly shows to entertain their guests. This is a great opportunity for work if you are a singer, dancer, juggler, acrobat or comedian.

Take a look at our dedicated page on a job agency for hotel entertainers in Spain called Acttiv.

Holiday Rep Jobs. The major tour operators organising package holidays do of course need a representative based in the hotel to be on hand to look after the problems of any guests.

Importantly – these jobs are advertised and arranged in the United Kingdom not in Ibiza.

See our detailed page on Ibiza holiday rep jobs.

Bigger hotels on the island will offer facilities such as babysitting and kids clubs so if you are good with children this is another possibility of finding a job in a hotel.

Most hotel jobs will involve working behind the bar or serving as a waiter or waitress in the restaurant.

Where Can I Get Hotel Jobs in Ibiza?

The famous Ibiza Rocks group would be a good place to start with their hotel and hostel directly employing many people especially because they also have bars and host many rock concerts throughout the summer.

    Hi, I’m living in Ibiza as a permanent resident. I previously worked as a Hotel Manageress in the UK, where I worked in a front of house position. I also have a Legal Secretarial background and have worked for the Police. I am looking for a suitable position to start at present. I have many years professional experience so really a job within a hotel, office based, or even a live in housekeeping position would be suitable. I am a very pleasant and honest person. Look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks
