Tourism

Each country guide includes forecasts for sectors that are specific to that country.  For example, this section covers the tourism sector in Spain, including hiring trends and areas of job promise.

Below is a brief excerpt from this section:

Employment Outlook

The tourism sector has generated an unprecedented growth in employment in recent terms, which is expected to continue in the near term, but at a much slower pace. This is mainly due to the fact that Western tourists are reconsidering other Mediterranean countries as their holiday destination, in particular Turkey, Egypt and Tunisia.   

The majority of offered positions in this sector are seasonal or temporary contracts, particularly the hospitality fields and entertainment.

Areas of Job Promise

While tourism is a growing business in almost all regions, the main cities and tourist areas show the most demand for positions such as cooks, waiters, bus and tram drivers, as well as cleaners and helpers in offices, hotels and other establishments, according to the most recent data by the European Commission. 

Major hubs for summer work are Catalonia, Valencia, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Madrid and Andalusia.   

This is just a brief sample of the extensive information in the GoinGlobal Spain Career Guide, which is carefully researched and regularly updated by career experts.
