I  would like to find someone who is willing to help with whatever the job may be. Currently I am working on maintaining my amateur radio antenna. No technical knowledge is required just a willingness to assist with whatever arises.  The location is near the Monastery on Cabo San Antonio. What remuneration do you have in mind? Thanks for reading this!

I empathise with your motivation but a couple of words of caution.

Firstly you cannot legitimately 'employ' someone on the basis you outline.

Secondly, even if not legal, the fact that they would be remunerated (in any form) means that you will be acting as de facto employer and should someone meet with an accident whilst in your employ you could find yourself in serious and potentially financially ruinous trouble.

That might sound petty and pedantic but nevertheless it's true and is something you need to be aware off.

Finally I'd suggest that advertising for such an arrangement on an open and public is probably not the best idea.

I wouldn't mix up occasional help (paid or not) with "employment". The latter requires, at least in Spain, various mutual rights and obligations laid down in the "Ley de Relaciones Laborales". And, such occasional help is not illegal and never has been

A fine point perhaps but I think you'll find that any work performed for reward falls under the definition of 'emoloyment' and all that implies.

I grant it's highly unlikely that a case of beer or a bottle of wine given in thanks for a hand given will ever get anybody into trouble but if you start talking about cash things change.

On whatever scale it still counts as 'working on the black'

Hello 

 Although I dont disagree with the advise already given, I think this is far too vague.  Even a voluntary job would require details  of what is required & when.....                   not ...."whatever the job maybe  or whatever may arise"

  I would be far too suspicious  of that & I assume, so would most others!

Cheers
