I am a UK citizen thinking of working in Spain and wondered what the best job sites are to look at?

Not sure how good your Spanish is but you could try Monster, or the major recruitment agencies like Manpower and Randstad. An American friend of mine found her job through Jobs in Madrid. Good luck!

Generally speaking though your choices are:

1. teaching English
2. teaching English
3. working for even less money by not having a CELTA or Trinity cert. to teach English.

basically there are very few jobs outside of the expat communities other than teaching English. It is an easy way to make a living though and can be fun.

If you don't have the certificate (and only go for a CELTA or Trinity Cert. the TEFL qualification is not worth the paper it's written on and WILL NOT be recognised by schools in Spain unless they are the kind of school that pays €6 an hour) go and do the course there. You will be able to do it cheaper than you would in the UK and there is more chance of getting a job at the end of it since the schools will be able to help you find something.

Thanks for the help guys. My Spanish is basic at the moment but I would like to continue with graphic or web design and thought that if I worked really hard with the language then it could be possible to get a job in this field. Maybe start off in Gibraltar where there are some English spoken design jobs.

Finding work in Spain is probably not too difficult for you, seeing that you're from the UK. But it's true, u definitely need to brush up on your Spanish skills. There are lotsa places to take intensive courses, or even just mingling around with the locals, esp intercambios (language exchanges) that can be really helpful too.

Let me know if this helps!;)
