Default Short term contact - visa (for Australian)

Hi, I need to find some information and would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.

I need to find out what type if visa would be required for an Australian citizen doing a short-term contract in Spain (1-2 months) for a non-Spanish company based elsewhere.

I have been searching the Internet but cannot seem to find anything that fits the above.

Thanks

you need to apply for a work permit from the Spanish embassy while in Australia or wherever you reside - you can't work at all without one

Work or Residents Permits

Australian Citizens wanting to work or reside in Spain must apply for the appropriate visa from the nearest Spanish Embassy or Consulate. You should apply for the relevant visa from outside of Spain, if you do not, you will be issued the standard ‘Schengen Visa’ upon arrival which does not grant you the right to reside or work in Spain. Spanish immigration authorities will not generally grant a work or residence visa to Australian citizens who enter Spain on a ‘Schengen Visa’.

If you are in Spain and want information on obtaining a work or residence visa contact the Spanish Ministry of the Interior on 060 (Spanish only).

If you have a work, residence, or ancestry visa for any other European Union country, such as the United Kingdom, this visa is not transferable to Spain.

Thanks, yes, I did find that site but it wasn't very detailed and when you click on the diplomatic mission link you end up being directed back to the embassy site. Still, I believe it is a 'Short-term work visa' that us required.

Thanks for the replies
