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.
The Fish Ibiza in San Antonio
Yes you read that right a breakfast for 1 euro. We heard about the Fish Ibiza through another online blog IBZ.TV and had to go and check it for ourselves to see what the fuss was about.
Located in San Antonio close to the West End at Carrer de Santa Rosalia, 2, below the All Suite Ibiza Apart hotel.
A small friendly bar that is very popular with the summer workers (with recruitment days, job and accommodation board) and servers the famous 1 euro breakfast.
Adam Craft Vlog of Ibiza
I can’t believe I hadn’t seen this Vlog earlier but thanks to Twitter I stumbled across it last night and instantly wanted more.
Adam Craft is spending his 4th season in Ibiza working as a Floor Supervisor in Ibiza Rocks Bar and is shooting and editing a vlog of his summer adventures in Ibiza.
DJ Ed Knowles
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?
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.
Gone are the days of 7 or 8 of you crammed into an apartment designed for 2 – 4, or staying in a huge block with who knows what knocking on your door at 3am.
They have invested heavily in what was the Hostel Apolo and they have revamped and re-launched it as Apolo Accommodation.
