If you have trawled this blog already you might have seen us talking about work exchange programs currently on offer in Seville, if you haven’t click here. If you have read the post you would know we are big fan of work exchanges but unless you have a trust fund, rely on ageing members of your family to call it a day so you can be the mourning yet jovial recipient of some form of inheritance, or, you invented Lego* your savings will eventually run out.
But fear not! There are jobs that offer a live in position, that pay you (pretty good money) and give you a warm fuzzy feeling of moral satisfaction (plus potentially make you that person at a party that is always just a generally better human being than everyone else).
The first of these that we recommend are elderly care jobs. If you are from the UK you would know all to well about the mass exodus of retirees that have sold up the semi and purchased a villa in Spain. Two thumbs up and a hi-five to Bernard and Magda, I for one can’t say I blame them; the Spanish government on the other hand is not so amused. Because of this aforementioned exodus the result is an increased number of aging expats that Spain has to deal with. Until recently expats were awarded the same rights in terms of health care but as a consequence of the Europe debt crisis Spain has actually began to deny health care that they were previously eligible for, consequently forcing many expats to:
a) Go back to the semi or;
b) Seek private health care
The latter is where you come in. Christies Care is a UK based company that currently has over 100 carers based in Spain. Typically the wages start at 400 GBP a week, not bad especially considering you are not paying for living expenses. The usual work mainly includes helping with shopping, cleaning, cooking and general house work that the clients may now find more difficult to do due to their age.
What’s more of a tempter is the training which is covered over a five day free course. All this said and done this is not a job that is for everyone. Clearly you have to be caring, compassionate and an understanding individual. If you have recently been discharged from the French Foreign Legion and looking for a new career path I might cautiously suggest that this might not be the job for you.
Live for free + Make money + Be a good person
If you are like us and that one night turns into a week, and the week then turns into a month staying on and working in Seville soon becomes a serious option. All of us at TRIPPINN remember how daunting it first seemed when we were confronted with different visas and permits categorised by pretty much every letter of the alphabet. Spain, Just like any modern country seems to have a lot of bureaucratic red tape, in the most part however it is unnecessarily complex and is easy enough to work out. Fortunately we still remember just how hard we found it so we have condensed it and summarized it for you. The summary is split into two parts, For EU citizens and Non-EU citizens as the rules change slightly between the two.
CITIZENS OF THE EU
1) For citizens of the EU there are three main steps required to fully settle in Spain. In the most part this is just bureaucratic form filling and has become increasingly simple in the last few years.The first step is getting a work permit. If you are an EU national you don’t need a work permit before coming to Spain, arrive as a tourist and then apply at the national employment office, the Instituto Nacional de Empleo (INEM). From then you have 90 days to find employment, if you can’t find employment in the first 90 days you can re-apply for an additional 90 day extension with the INEM.
2) After you have landed your first job then comes the next step, residency. Don’t worry; believe it or not you have done the hard work already. Once you have an employment contract bring that and your EU passport to the “Foreigners’ Office” (Oficina de Extranjeros), this is conveniently located at the Plaza de España, one of servilles most famous and beautiful attractions. This is where you can apply for your Número de Identificación de Extranjero (NIE). This number is equivalent to the British national insurance number and is essential for paying your tax or if you want to purchase a house or car when is Spain.
3) Finally you will need your residency permit (empadronamiento). This sounds a lot more difficult to obtain than it is. Simply go to the town hall (equivalent to a registry office) with your rent contract or proof of residence for it to be issued. This form is important as it recognizes you on the Spanish census. It is also essential if you want to get a health care card or redeem your EU drivers’ license.
After you have carried out these few steps, congratulations, you now have Spanish residency and you can live, work, and play in Spain just like a local.
CITIZENS NOT OF THE EU
Admittedly settling or even just working in Spain for those of us not from an EU country is slightly more tedious. In order to obtain work you first need to have an offer of employment issued by a Spanish employer. You can also not enter on a tourist visa, find work while you are here and then apply in Spain for a work visa. Working visas are issued in non-EU countries by the Spanish consulate in that country. A full list of these consulates can be found here
Once you have your employment offer the next step is choosing what visa is best suited for you, there are three main types:
TYPE A: This is the most common for travelers wanting to work in Spain, in particular over summer. The visa is issued for a specific contract or period (no longer than nine months) and to a specific area.
TYPE B: Issued to a foreigner for a period of one year and is for a specific job in a specified region. This visa can then be renewed when in Spain after it has expired and it will be replaced with an additional two year un-restricted work visa
TYPE D: This is for self employed individuals. Proof of your qualifications will be required when applying for this visa and issued for a year with the ability to extend thereafter.
When applying for any of the visas you will be required to provide the Spanish consulate or embassy in your country with
- A valid passport
- Police clearance
- Medical clearance
- Three passport sized photos
- The fiscal registration number of your Spanish employer
- Offer of employment, or alternatively if you are self employed and applying for a type D visa you will need to prove that you have sufficient qualifications to carry out the work.
If you are a non-EU citizen and you only want to spend a couple of months here, it might be easier for you to get a Spanish tourist visa and enter a work exchange program where you are not paid with money but with accommodation, food and depending on the type of exchange other bonuses. Have a look at our HELPX article for more details.
Are you working in a bridal shop in flushing queens?
Has your boyfriend kicked you out in one of those crushing scenes?
What are you to do? Where are you to go? Are you out on your fanny?
Just like the nanny named (*jazz fingers*) Fran, Au Pair or Nanny work might be for you! The perfect solution for mid to long term travelers who want to travel, make money, live for free and more importantly have what is often described as a rewarding experience.
There are a plethora of sites dedicated to connecting travelers to families that are looking for Au pairs to work in a live in position in their family. The sites vary widely in the type of work advertisers are looking for.
One site we recommend is newaupair.com. The site is slightly informal in comparison to others and purpose is to link directly potential new nannies with host families. The requirements of the job vary but in most cases families that are advertising aren’t looking for some highly trained professional nannies alá Mary Poppins, but rather some one young who can be patient and help with running a house.
There tends to be two main types of families, the first and more common on this site are Expats whose children are in an international school and who feel speaking English at home is important. The second, are Spanish families who want an English speaking “assistant” (in lack of a better word) to speak English around the house as a way to help improve their childs language.
Much like a work exchange program your working day usually consists of about 4-5 hour paid work. As you are also in a live in position you also won’t be paying for food and board.
Have a look for yourself: http://www.newaupair.com/browse_families_results.aspx?cntry=Spain&pg=0
Another website that we can recommend is Planet Aupair. The site is far more formal and acts more as an agent to families. The negative of this is a relatively heavy €300 registration fee, however, the benefits of this are that all families are screened and you are given support throughout your stay. They also have formal employment contracts when you start (insuring for example you receive paid holiday leave after six months work). The program is only open to people from EU countries, USA, Canada or Australia and clients are nearly always Spanish who want au pairs as a way to teach their children English in a more relaxed environment.
Again, have a look for yourself: http://www.planetaupair.com/aupairspain.htm
After knowing many people that have done this work it can be a rewarding experience. You truly do become a part of a family; spending time, even a few hours a day with children can cause lasting relationships and those who do it often are surprised at how hard it is to leave.
You don’t have to be “super nanny” (sorry, I needed to slip in at least another nanny reference before the end of this post) but be patient and prepared to not only become a new member of but help improve some one else’s family and truly submerse yourself in Spain.
