Night Club Jobs in Spain
First of all we are going to list some of the different types of jobs that you might expect to find in the nightclubs of Ibiza.
DJs Required in Ibiza – Becoming an Ibiza DJ in one of the very top clubs is next to impossible unless you are already a major name as a DJ such as David Guetta, Carl Cox, Judge Jules, Pete Tong, Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren.
We definitely discourage you from even considering this as a possibility, there are much easier club jobs you could get.
PRs – The capacity of these huge discos and clubs is massive and so as famous as they are, they all need promoters who are known as PR’s.
These public relation reps must go round the island creating interest for the many parties and nights held throughout the summer season.
Bar Jobs – The superclubs in Ibiza are so large that each evening they can hold around 5,000 people, so that’s plenty of customers who need serving drinks. You can either work behind the bar or as a waiter or waitress taking drinks and food to tables especially in the VIP areas.
Dancing in Clubs – Every club will require some good-looking men and especially women to dance on podiums in order to create an additional atmosphere to the music.
You will need to not only be a great dancer but also have stunning looks and figure. You could be dancing for 4 to 5 hours straight each evening so being a dancer in Ibiza is an extremely physically demanding job.

Club Jobs in San Antonio Ibiza
Many nightclub jobs will be located in the busiest resort of San Antonio aka Sant Antoni. The world famous clubs of Eden and Es Paradis are located just behind the main beach.

Other locations for club jobs would include Ibiza Town and Playa d’en Bossa.
Advantages of Working in a Club
Unlike working in other bars and restaurants which are open all day, requiring you to work long hours, by working in a club you get to have the day off and relax on the beach.
Virtually everybody who wants to work in Ibiza wants to be there so that they can enjoy some time in the club’s but by getting a job inside, you will not only be enjoying the amazing atmosphere and music – but getting paid at the same time!

Pacha Ibiza Jobs
Of all the famous clubs on Ibiza, Pasha is the original and best. Whatever you do try get a job here!
Since Pacha opened in 1973, it has become known to play mostly house music with a real Balearic flavour.
The brand has now been extended with franchises throughout the world but nothing beats the original club in Ibiza.
The club enforces a strict dress code and attracts VIPs from all over the world.
Pacha is the smallest of the six major nightclubs in Ibiza with a capacity of 3000 people, so often you won’t get in.

It is going to be incredibly difficult to get work in Pacha but somebody has to get those jobs. The one major factor that counts against you is that the club is open all year round unlike the other major clubs.
Pacha is filled with locals and so it isn’t just a mass tourist club, this means that most of the staff will be working there all year round but there will still be a few seasonal, summer jobs available.

Es Paradis Jobs
Es Paradis opened in 1975 in spectacular style. The club has been described by many as the most beautiful club in the world. You can’t fail to miss it because it is shaped as a pyramid, the top of which opens up in the morning to allow the sun to beam in and signal that the night is over!
The club is directly next to Eden, located just behind the beach and waterfront in San Antonio so it benefits from a fantastic position in Ibiza’s busiest resort where most workers go to find jobs.
Es Paradis has a Roman decor and is famous for its water parties (Fiesta del Aqua).
The music is very varied depending on the various nights and parties so it is difficult to define exactly. It can vary from house, hip hop to techno.

You may have heard of the legendary Manumission nights which massively raised the profile of Ibiza in the 1990s as the place to go for clubbing and listening to dance music.
Many of the clubs in Ibiza used to be open-air venues but the law change of 1990 forced many to put roofs on and at that time the club became Privilege.
The big night at this club has been the trance night on Monday hosted by Tiesto which will now be held by Armin Van Buuren and his A State of Trance night.
The club is located in between San Antonio and Ibiza town and close to Amnesia.
