Where to Find Jobs in Playa del Ingles, Gran Canaria.

Kasbah, Metropole & Plaza are good spots as they host many shops, restaurants, bars and clubs. But really anywhere in Playa del Ingles as the resort is packed with places that have a serious need for students and seasonal workers in the summer to cater to the needs of the huge influx of tourists to the resort. Try also nightclubs such as Plaza and Pacha.

The Annexo II complex is right on the beach and with plenty of facilities.

Gay Jobs in Spain

Of all of the places in Spain we rate this as the best place for work and jobs if you are gay. Sitges near Barcelona also has a reputation for being a resort many gay men flock to but Playa del Ingles on Gran Canaria is widely known to be the Gran Canaria is the number one gay travel destination in Europe.

Playa del Ingles Yumbo CentreThere are plenty of jobs in the gay bars, nightclubs, caberet and show bars for young men!

The Yumbo center is where the gay nightlife happens but couples and even families go here to watch the La Belle drag show from around 11:00pm!

See if you can get work in the popular Ricky’s Cabaret Bar which hosts a popular karaoke show, followed by the drag queen comedy show.

Bar Junior has live strippers on its terrace. Other popular venues include Construction bar, Na Und Pils Bar, Macho Macho, Cruise, Mykonos and Tubos.

Gay clubs include Mantrix, Heaven and Club XL.

One of the good points about Gran Canaria is that being close to Africa it is less seasonal than the Balearic Islands such as Ibiza and mainland Spain which of course is much further north. It means more consistent work and job opportunities.

If Playa del Ingles sounds a bit too much like Benidorm then maybe try the quieter and more family orientated resort next door – see our jobs in Maspalomas page or the cultural capital of the island, Las Palmas jobs.

Consider some of the other Spanish islands such as the nearby Canary Islands of Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura or how about jobs in Ibiza?
