WEEK 3: Paperwork
Welcome to the third blog of our theme month. The entire month of May in 2022 we organised the Work in Barcelona! month.
This month was all about providing you with the ultimate guide to working in Barcelona, where we dived into a different topic every week. On the right you can see the different theme weeks.
We shared our best tips on how to improve your employability through CV writing and your social media presence. As well as, how the Spanish work culture works, what kind of paperwork and documents you’ll need and lastly living in Barcelona.
In this third week’s blog, we talked all about paperwork. You’ve found a job, but now what?! Then comes the arranging of all your Spanish paperwork, which can be a long and dreadful process if you don’t know how everything works or if you don’t speak the language.
We discussed everything you will need to work and live in Barcelona and how to arrange your NIE, empadronamiento, seguridad social, amongst other things. We explained what these things are, whether you need it and if so, where you can get it. On our website, we have the best database of companies and agents who are experts in guiding you through the process and, if desired, arranging everything for you.
Since this is one of the most important steps when moving to Barcelona, make sure you keep reading!
Monday – How to obtain your NIE
How can I get my NIE in Barcelona?! A question that we receive very often. No need to worry, we are here to help!
We will discuss the answers to all your questions, ranging from
- What is a NIE?
- What is the difference between NIE and TIE?
- How to get your NIE?
- What to do when your NIE gets stolen?
Check out this blog for all the answers!
ALSO! Did you know there is an app to arrange the appointment for your NIE?!
Check out our blog for the app!
An ‘empadronamiento’ is the certificate that says you’re officially registered within the municipality and which makes you a citizen of the city in which you live.
For all our student readers, you only need this when you’re planning on staying in Barcelona for more than 6 months!
The details on how to apply are explained step by step in our blog!
WORK IN BARCELONA! JOB FAIR
The 24th of May we organized the Work in Barcelona! Job Fair. This time we tried taking a different approach. We talked business but in a casual setting, at the beach bar: Club Soda!
The fair was the perfect opportunity for everyone looking for or interested in working in Barcelona to explore the job opportunities in Barcelona! At the fair several recruitment agencies attended, but also companies focused on helping expats with anything related to starting work life in Barcelona!
