FInding a job in Barcelona as an expat and how to begin your job search
The cosmopolitan city of Barcelona has been crowned Spain’s ‘most liveable’ city and is an extremely popular destination among expats. Working in Barcelona is certainly an exciting prospect, but you might still have some questions regarding the challenges of finding a job in Barcelona as an expat and how to begin your job search…
International talent in Barcelona
International talent forms a key part of Barcelona’s workforce and as an expat, you’ll find an endless variety of opportunities for people with language skills!
Barcelona has an excellent track record for attracting large multinational companies over the years and has become a destination of choice for foreign investment. It is also one of the most attractive cities for Shared Service Centres. Aside from this, Barcelona has emerged as one of the leading European cities for technology and innovation, with the start-up scene booming and many (international) entrepreneurs setting up their businesses in Barcelona.
Most expats are changing jobs during their first year abroad as they start to gain a better understanding of the job market. Aside from this, some expats only stay temporarily. For these reasons, most companies are always looking for internationals, especially when it comes to the ‘harder to source’ languages such as Danish, Dutch, German, Norwegian and Swedish.
