Working in Spain

Spain is a country that is very open to expatriates, particularly in the financial services, automobile manufacturing, information and communication technologies, aviation and agri-food sectors…Consult the European job mobility website, and put your networks to work to find work in Spain.
The “Oficina de empleo” (employment agencies) also offer job vacancies and will help you in your search.

Schooling in Spain

Foreign pupils wishing to enroll in Spanish nursery, primary or secondary schools do not need to have their previous studies certified; they enter directly into the class corresponding to their age.
There are 23 French establishments in Spain. Scholarships may be awarded to children from French families who do not have sufficient resources to cover their school fees.
There are also many English-speaking establishments, as well as Swedish and German schools.

Accommodation in Spain

Rent prices are not affordable in the big cities, but are always inclusive of service charges. In Madrid and Barcelona, prices for a furnished apartment start at €600/month. Roommates are very common in Spain, as they cost half as much.
You must leave one or two months’ rent as a deposit and in cash to cover any damage you may cause.
There is usually no inventory of fixtures, so take photos and draw up an inventory if the property is furnished.
The lease generally lasts 5 years, with a minimum of one year. It’s best to draw up a rental contract that specifies your commitments and those of the owner, as well as the amount of charges.
