Looking for a job: Healthcare

Hi 

I am moving to Villamartin after Christmas and would like to work. I have lots of experience working with children with special needs, I worked at a special school for 24 years. Also have worked with the elderly. How would I go about looking for a job.

Any help  would be good,

Thank you

How is your Spanish? You are moving to Spain and would need to speak the language to get meaningful employment.

To work with children or vulnerable people you would need to register with servicios sociales at your ayuntamiento and they will check out your qualifications and do any police checks etc.

If there are any jobs in the care sector they would know about them, but of course you would have to have at least a conversational level of Spanish.

The same applies to children with SEN, you would also have to approach the education department as they would direct you to employment in schools. Again, a working knowledge of Spanish would be essential.

You will need to register with INSS (social security) and also with Agencia Tributaria (tax). If you succeed in getting a contract of employment it will be paid for you but, if you have to work without a contract, you will need to register as autónomo (self employed) and make the monthly INSS contributions yourself. You will also have to employ the services of an asesor to look after your tax.

It's really the same as if you were applying for a job in the UK - references checked, tax and insurance etc. Here of course you have the added complication of being required to speak Spanish, just as any foreigner in the UK would be required to speak english.

I hope the above is useful and my advice is to get the language lessons as soon as you can.
