Default Bar work for young lad?

Actually, he's not so young now but my nephew is bored of being a barman in Mid Wales and fancies a change. Not a bad thing, imo, however I know that there is a high unemployment rate in Spain.

He was looking at a company that arrange this for a fee but I think he would be better off taking a holiday and looking round first....but this is pointless if things are really dire.

He doesn't speak Spanish but I also don't think he is fussy where he goes....

Any thoughts?

Muchos gracias!

Have they guaranteed him a job for an up front payment?
If so I'd just forget it

You said it in your post .... things are challenging here regarding employment. He may manage to get something in the summer in a main holiday destination like Benidorm, but he may get laid off after the tourists go home

Big cities like Madrid or Barcelona are the best places to look for work. Not sure about outside but last time people posted i was mentioned that even Spanish people can't find jobs anymore, so very unlikely that an English person who can't speak Spanish will find work...
