Default Moving to Spain soon

So I've been given a chance to move to Barcelona (sitges) and move in with a close family member and just chip in little amounts for rent/food, I'm 21 years old 22 in March so my questions are what would my chances of getting a bar job or anything along those lines, I was also looking into doing a tefl course and seeing where that could take me, I will be going alone and the people I would live with are working so in the time it takes me to find a job will I be able to find enough stuff to do alone.

So on the low down I have a place to stay so that worry is out of the way so if anyone can give me advice on what I'm about to do it would be great

Hi and welcome to the forum!! Couple of questions, do you speak Spanish? Do you have any money saved to bring with you? The unemployment situation in Spain is pretty dire and especially for people in your age group. If you plan to live here for more than three months you would have to prove you have an income and can support yourself and also that you have healthcare provision. If you are not paying into the Spanish system you will need private healthcare which is not as expensive as in the UK.

Obviously the good news is that you have somewhere to stay, pretty much free of charge if necessary, but please be aware that your chances of finding work are very slim especially if you don't speak Spanish.

Teaching English is a possibility but there are many ex pats trying to do that. The pay isn't great but you could also teach privately which would be a better source of income if you can find clients.

My advice would be to come over for a while with a view to researching the area and finding out as much as you can but always keeping at the back of your mind that you may have to return to the UK if it doesn't work out. Good luck!!!
