Finding a job in Barcelona

View/Add Comments (0 Comments) | Add to Favorites (0 Favorites)

When deciding to move to Barcelona, one of the first and foremost things to consider is where you will be working, and how to find a job. In spite of the high unemployment rate in Spain, there are definitely many opportunities to find work in Barcelona.

In the last few years, a growing number of international companies have moved their European offices to Barcelona, which has attracted many expats since these companies require employees to cover many different countries/regions, and therefore speak a variety of languages. Especially I.T companies such as H.P, Fujitsu, SAP etc are constantly looking for people, and if you speak English and a second European language, you have a very good chance of finding a job very quickly.

Of course, the best method to search for job opportunities is on the internet. The most popular ones are:

www.infojobs.net – probably the most popular and most-used one

www.loquo.com

www.jobsinbarcelona.es - for English Speaking jobs

www.metropolitan-barcelona.com – this is the English Speaking magazine in Barcelona. They also have Free Classified section where you can find some job offers.

There are also many who come to Barcelona as qualified English teachers - another great option!
