Do you want to live and work in Gran Canaria? Many people do contact us and ask what is the best way to take the leap and for advice. Facts first. 1 in every 3 people in the Canary Islands are unemployed, so whilst you may want to get away from your boring 9-5, think carefully as it may be that you will not find the job you are hoping for when you arrive if any! Do you speak Spanish? If you are still pondering the move, take a night class in Spanish and get the gist of the language, it goes a long way with the locals if you can make light conversation. Plus if you are looking for a 'real job' or 'normal job' (not in Tourism) then you will need to be fluent. Many tourism based jobs, DJ, hotel entertainer, reception, bar and restaurant jobs can have unsociable hours, are you prepared for that? If you are interested in working as a Rep in Gran Canaria, I advise you to check out tour companies websites such as TUI and Thomas Cook. They are now taking on staff for 2013 which include jobs such as Children's Rep, Entertainers, Holiday Reps, Soccer Coach and so on... if this is more up your street then I would suggest taking this route. You can usually choose 3 destinations if you are offered the job, although you may not end up in Gran Canaria, it's worth it if you are looking to travel.
