Smile Summer Work in Costa Blanca

Me and my boyfriend are planning to move to the Costa Blanca in June for the Summer and longer if possible. Can anyone give any advice on getting work? Would it be advisable to have work arranged before leaving England or is it easy enough to find work on arrival in Spain?
We can both speak basic Spanish and are not too fussy what kind of work we do (bar, restaurant or hotel work is fine). We also don't mind whereabouts we work as long as we can rent an apartment in the area.

Any advice would be much appreciated

Welcome to BE & I hope you get some positive, constructive feedback - prepare yourself for the prospect of advice along the lines that it will be difficult, you should have a stash (thousands) of funds to keep you going & you'll be in a long line of people seeking seasonal work..... good luck. Keep us posted.

Well I guess you'll be heading for the main holiday destinations such as Alicante or Benidorm then. I'd be silly to tell you that you'll find work easily in the current economic climate, but bar work in the summer may be a possibility.

You'll need to be aware that it may not pay that well though.

i know that it is quite a long time ago.but nine years ago i went on a two week holiday to benidorm.and in that time i got myself a house share and a job working as a prop for the beachcomber bar in the square.
the money was enough to live on as long as you dont treat it as a holiday and drink it all.i loved it so much that i was there for nearly 7 years so i got my moneys worth out of that holiday.i now have a house in central portugal and have gone for the quieter life before i burned myself out completely.good luck and i hope it all works out for you as there is nothing in blighty for anyone at the moment and things are only going to get worse over the next six months or so.
