Hola Todos
Iam from Manchester England and thinking of doing a "David Beckham" and coming to Madrid in March 2004. "Yo hablas un bien nivel de Espanol"
I was wondering what difficulties English people have found in finding work, Could anybody point me in the right direction, I have worked in call centres here in England, I have studied Fashion at University, Iam a known D.j here in Manchester.
and have also dj'd recently at a good club in Valencia called "Latex community" Any help would be appreciated.
Ciao Tony Lionni

Hi,
Good luck if you do decide to come to Madrid. May be a good idea to keep doing the Spanish lessons - I speak is 'hablo', not 'hablas' (which is you speak).
There are a couple of mags when you get here that will be of interest. One is a freebie for the English community called InMadrid and they occassionally have jobs on offer. Another is called segundomano and they have general jobs on offer - I have seen adverts from an agency looking for native english telephone operators. I believe this mag also has a website - possibly segundomano.es so it may be worth checking out.
Other websites worth checking out include www.infojobs.net and www.randstad.es
I think with the right attitude and good Spanish you should be able to find work.. the difficult part will be finding the right accommodation.
Anyway good luck!!!

Hi,
Just discovered another website that may be of use...
www.spainalive.com (apologies to madridman if he already has this on his links)
It has a specific Madrid section and even has some jobs on offer (can`t vouch for their credibility). Also has an accommodation section so you can start advertising before you get here...
Cheers,
