Working in Ibiza
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.

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

Apolo Accommodation for Ibiza Workers
Those delightful people behind Ocean Beach and Ocean Mania took a huge step in 2015 and transformed the worker’s accommodation market in San Antonio.

They have invested heavily in what was the Hostel Apolo and they have revamped and re-launched it as Apolo Accommodation.
