Hi everyone,

I am thinking of returning to the Costa Del Sol this year I did live there previously for 3 years in 2005.I need a little advice on the work situation, I know unfortunately the Spanish economy is not good but how is the tourism trade? I would be working in bars and restaurants is there still jobs available?

Any advice will be much appreciated!

I cant acount for the situation in the Costa Del Sol but I would imagine it wont be very different to elsewhere in Spain. Jobs within bars and restaurants are going to be hard to find, with many people competing for any work (including part time, irregular hours with little / no contract with the employer) in this particular arena.

It seems that many Restauranters and Bar owners are struggling (rising costs and reducing demand) and are not keen to commit to a contractual arrangement with their staff. Restaurants and Bars are closing all over the place, although its probably fair to say that reducing competition in some areas means that those that are able to remain open are possibly remaining afloat in this stormy economic environment.

There will probably be summer work in the CDS, but like I said ....the competition is going to be high.

Good luck whatever you decide to do

I'm afraid wend is right.  Even the jobs which used to be plentiful not so long ago are difficult to come by these days. 

There will always be a need for extra bar and restaurant staff in the summer but as more and more people become unemployed in Spain then these jobs will become increasingly sought after.

Sorry, can't be more positive than that!
