Ibiza Summer Jobs – Your Guide to a Working Summer in Ibiza

Ibiza is the place in Europe for young people to work for the summer in 2019.

The island has some of the best known clubs in the whole world and is a Mecca for fans of dance music.

What better place to work your summer than in a party destination where you can have a lot of fun while earning some money at the same time.

Work for Young People in Ibiza

Most people looking for summer jobs will just want a job for the peak months of July and August but in actual fact the season starts a lot earlier when the major clubs hold their opening parties from mid-May onwards.

This does represent a problem for students who unfortunately will still be studying at colleges and universities at that time.

It basically means that you will miss out on the elite jobs working in the top Ibiza clubs as people would have got in there way before you but don’t worry there are still plenty of opportunities to work in Ibiza.

The summer season in Ibiza tends to come to a close round about mid-September when the big clubs have the closing parties.

Where Can I Find Summer Jobs in Ibiza?

Most summer jobs can be found in San Antonio, also known as Sant Antoni (or San An for short). This is where most bars and pubs are located, in the West End area in particular as well as the promenade.

Other good areas would include the capital of Ibiza Town and the popular beach resort of Playa D’en Bossa and Santa Eulalia.

Smaller locations include: Cala Llonga, Es Cana, Figueretas, Portinatx, Puerto San Miguel, S’argamassa, Sa Caleta, San Jose and Talamanca.

Summer in Ibiza (image hosted by telegraph.co.uk)Our main page on jobs & work in in Ibiza has some excellent sources of jobs such as Internet websites and local newspapers so make sure you go over to that page.

We can also refer you to some of the working holiday companies who organise package working holidays to Ibiza and as part of the holiday price their reps will guide and help you as much as possible to find a job in the resort.

Air Pro – offer working holiday packages which includes flights, airport transfers, 4 weeks holiday accommodation and an experienced rep on hand to help with finding you a job in Ibiza.

PlayaWay “There are various Ibiza jobs and depending on suitability and availability your Playaway Reps will endeavour to get you sorted with work as soon as you’re ready to.”

SunKiss Travel – “We specialise in a complete package for young party people to work abroad. Including accommodation, work, new friends, help finding cheap flights and ensuring you have the experience of a lifetime.

We offer winter working holidays to Lanzarote and Gran Canaria and Summer working holidays to Ayia Napa, Ibiza, Magaluf and Zante.”

What Types of Ibiza Summer Jobs?

Most summer jobs are bar jobs in Ibiza which usually involves serving behind the bar or related bar jobs such as DJ, glass collector, security, bouncer, cloakroom, PR rep or dancer.

Ibiza has a great demand for public relations (PR rep) jobs who can be found on the island handing out leaflets and vouchers for various pubs, clubs and bars.

Competition is fierce in Ibiza. The job of the PR rep in Ibiza is to generate extra business by flagging down pedestrians and encouraging them by any means possible to come into their bar or restaurant. These PR’s are normally very persuasive because they are paid on commission.

Catering and restaurant jobs in Ibiza are one of the very best ways of finding work in the summer as: cooks, chefs, kitchen assistant, waiter, waitress or dishwasher.

Ibiza is unusual in comparison to most of summer resorts in Spain in that there is a much greater demand for DJ jobs in Ibiza.

If you are a dancer you also stand a good chance of finding a job dancing in one of the top clubs such as Space, Pacha, DC-10, Amnesia, Es Paradis and Eden.

The big hotels in Ibiza such as Ibiza Rocks have some vacancies for: cleaners, animators, dancers, entertainers, receptionists etc.

If you have qualifications in any watersports you will have an advantage in being able to get some of the jobs in the dive centres teaching scuba-diving, jet ski hire or windsurfing and sailing.

If you’re really lucky you would get a job in one of the beach bars known as chiringuitos on Ibiza.

Unfortunately you won’t find most of summer jobs advertised because there just isn’t the necessity. Bar or club owners are approached daily by people looking for work. It means you have to be in Ibiza to stand a chance of getting a job.

How Much Can I Earn in Ibiza?

Most summer jobs or seasonal jobs in Ibiza will pay a basic wage at best. You are looking at getting paid about six euros an hour for most jobs such as working in a bar or waiting on tables as a waiter or waitress.

If you are lucky you get work in a job where you get tips because this can massively enhance your earnings especially when you come into contact with wealthy people such as pop stars, TV personalities and top DJs.

Radio One's summer in IBiza (image hosted by bbc.co.uk)It’s just the reality that employers can exploit the fact that so many people are looking to work in Ibiza for the summer.

To be fair to these employers, working in a party atmosphere is a lot of fun and you know full well that this is not about a career choice but more about an experience which you are unlikely to ever forget.

An ideal time to come out to Ibiza is April which coincides with Easter when things start to really pick up.

By getting out earlier than most people you will have the pick of the jobs.

Coming out early also gives you the opportunity to get an apartment before they all get rented out. The price for a studio or one bed apartment in Ibiza is on average €500 a month with bills on top.

Many workers just get a room or share with other workers.

Try LiveIbiza a rental accommodation agency offering summer short-term holiday accommodation and summer long-term rental periods.

This would be a good opportunity to suggest that you look at getting a job in advance before you arrive in Ibiza. For example we have a really good page on holiday rep jobs in Ibiza where you get paid a good salary with accommodation and all your living expenses included.

Summer Jobs Video

The video below is a really interesting one because it shows the interview process behind getting a job at the famous Cafe Mambo on the Sunset strip where people gather to watch the sun go down each evening.

To say these jobs are sought after is an understatement!

See just how competitive it is to get work at some of these top venues.

“Every year hundreds of workers come to the island of Ibiza, looking to live their dreams out on the magical island. Lots of those workers want to come and join the Mambo family and experience the amazing sunsets, superstar DJs, incredible views, meet the interesting people and be part of the Ibiza vibe that exudes from Cafe Mambo.”

Do I Need to Speak Spanish in Ibiza?

You are lucky in that Ibiza is a very international destination with tourists arriving from all over Europe and the rest of the world.

Having said this most employers will be Spanish and they will generally expect you to speak some basic words but nothing fluent – just enough to get by.

If you are an English-speaking person looking for summer jobs in Ibiza, look for the casual basic jobs that won’t pay much but also won’t require much speaking.

This would include jobs such as working in a bar or in a restaurant as a waiter or waitress, as a cleaner or dishwasher.

If you are a business looking to employ staff in Ibiza it won’t cost you anything to list your summer vacancies in the comments box below.

We are also looking for real-life stories from anyone who has worked in the summer in Ibiza. Please fill out the comments box below or contact us as we would love to publish your stories in order to help other workers.
