Having spent some time in Ibiza during late May it amazed me at how many jobs were still available for summer workers.
A chance encounter with a long serving summer worker (into his 10th year) at the Fish Ibiza provided a surprising answer which was further backed up by a conversation with another long term Ibiza resident.
This year it seems that there are lots of workers but they just don’t seem to be able to get their head around the fact that they are in Ibiza to work.
Max Viva is a seasoned Ibiza worker having spent 7 summers working on the island. He now plays an active role in promoting and running Viva Bar in San Antonio a fantastic workers and open deck venue. He also DJ’s at a number of venues across the island.
We sat down with Max over a Sunday afternoon beer at the Fish to chat about living and working in Ibiza, Ibiza itself and the future for the west end.

We first met Amanda in 2015 after she had arrived in Ibiza for a holiday and like many decided to stay on for the rest of the summer season.
She fell in love with the island its people, places and of course its parties and returned this year for a full season of Ibiza mayhem.
We caught up with her over a coffee back in the UK to find out how her 2016 season went, to find out her memories of the season and for her advice for others thinking about doing a summer in Ibiza. Read more
We first met Adam Craft in 2015 after he started posting weekly vlogs about his summer season in Ibiza. His vlogs are great fun and give a real insight into the work and lifestyle you can expect from working a season in the sun.
Being a veteran of working in Ibiza (2015 was Adam’s 5th consecutive year) we grabbed a few words with him to ask about working and if he had any tips he could share to help those new to working in Ibiza.
Thank you for joining us today Adam first off the question we get asked the most from potential workers thinking of doing a summer season in Ibiza. Read more
Last year, we met Ed, a 33 year old teacher and DJ who was spending his first full season working in Ibiza. Like us, he has a shared love of Ibiza so this week I met up with him to reminisce and to get the lowdown on Ibiza from a workers point of view.
You spent your first season working in Ibiza in 2014. What made you do it?
