Hi Ian,

There are several threads running about this subject at the moments so it worth reading most of them.

There won't be much chance of finding employment as a joiner I'm afraid as there are thousands of unemployment Spanish Joiner/handyman just waiting for work to come along. Jobs are usually given to people "who they know" and unless you work for yourself you will need to speak fluent Spanish. I can't comment on the need for carers but cooks/chef's are in abundance.

I glad you've done your research into aquiring NIE and required healthcare and incomes before you make the move.

Steve
