ULTIMATE GUIDE Working on Mallorca

30 September 2019

Upping sticks and settling down abroad appeals to many of us, yet just a small minority choose to actually make the big move. The prospect of learning a new language, finding your ropes in another culture and earning a living in unfamiliar surroundings could have your palms sweating. All of us who are working at Affordable Mallorca have done it though and agree it's the best move we’ve ever made; even if there are a few bumps in the road along the way.

Spain, in many respects, seems tougher than most northern European Countries, the UK or the States. Salaries are lower, contracts are often seasonal, and there is practically no public welfare system to fall back onto in case of need. To prosper on the island you definitely need to get creative and be ready to move out of your comfort zone. And one thing is for sure: You need to speak the language.
