One of our most frequently asked questions here at O Beach Ibiza, and across our sister businesses, is “How can I get a job in Ibiza?’. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, the Mediterranean Sea at your doorstep, and buzzy venues available to work at—we understand that desire to swap the daily grind for island life well. A large majority of the teams behind your favorite Ibiza venues are expats, having moved to Ibiza for a season before relocating full-time, alongside our lovely team members from the island itself—all are key assets to our team.
While we welcome and encourage applicants from all backgrounds, nationalities, and walks of life to apply for any of our roles, certain criteria do need to be met before we can even consider looking at a CV—this is for legal reasons.
Which nationalities can apply to work for the O Beach Ibiza group with their current passport?
Anyone with an EU passport, a Spanish National, or a TIE/Spanish residency holder, can apply to work with us. Since Brexit (February 2020), this excludes anyone with a British passport unless the passport holder already holds the right to work in Spain.
Unfortunately, we can’t interview anyone who doesn’t meet these requirements and any applications like these will be discarded. There are no exceptions, loopholes, or shortcuts!
If I’m not Spanish, but I have an EU passport, do I need anything else before I can begin working in Ibiza legally?
Before you can officially start working for any of the O Beach Group businesses, you will need an NIE number. An NIE number (Número de Identificación de Extranjero) is an individual identification number given to Spanish workers who are not Spanish citizens. You can apply for an NIE from the Spanish Consulate in your area before you arrive in Spain—you’d need to check how long that would take. You can also apply for your NIE when in Spain through a gestor (an advisor who helps with paperwork related to public administration such as residency or taxes).
We have English-speaking staff liaison officers in certain venues who can advise on how and where to obtain certain documents and answer your queries regarding employment. All of our head office-based staff speak English, including Human Resources.
Just double checking, is there NO way I can apply to work for the O Beach Ibiza group with a British passport?
Nice try! Sadly, due to Brexit, we can no longer employ British Nationals who do not already have a TIE (a foreigner ID card) or access to a European passport.
If you’re British and have parents or grandparents that hold/held an Irish or EU Passport, it may be possible to apply for an Irish or EU Passport. This would allow you to work in Spain legally. The wait times can be long so please apply ASAP and check processing times.
