    Basic answer, forget it. You will not find employment. If you did, wages are breadline, Self employed Plasterers are prolific. You would struggle to exist.

    Re: Plasterer/ renderer looking for work or any information

    Wow this the same ans I get back all the time, like its 10 years hard labour breaking rocks for god sake its a European country is it that poor, how everyone goes on I'll have better luck trying in north Korea, look if your good at what you do it don't matter where you are, but I guess there is competition that's why all this negative response, I am yet to hear that Spain is a third world nation including canaries

    My understanding is that any job is hard to find but I expect some people manage to make a success of it. Bear in mind that accommodation is generally more expensive in or near the main tourist resorts so if you are on a limited income, you might want to look in other places. I wish you good luck if you do move over here and would strongly suggest that you learn as much Spanish as possible as that will definitely be a positive thing for you.

    One more andy you said your understanding of finding employment is difficult, so I can only assume you are retired or you don't need to look for work would that be fair, you could be a good contact cheers

    Re: Plasterer/ renderer looking for work or any information

    Yes, I am retired so I'm lucky that I don't need to look for work. I have a Spanish friend who had a good job but it was on a short term contract that came to an end. He managed to find another job but it has taken two months to arrange all the paperwork and hopefully he will finally start working again in July.
    The cost of living out here is generally cheaper than the UK but I think wages are considerably lower too. The climate is great all year round but without a stable job I expect it's very difficult as my friend only received around €300 per month from the government while he was trying to find a job and that amount is for a limited time anyway.

    Good luck!

    Re: Plasterer/ renderer looking for work or any information

    you can try all the local english builders to see if there is any work going they advertise in the free papers i dout you will get any contract so you will be working illigal but it is a starting point till you get to know how things work and where the suppliers are do not forget medical insurrence there is work for you out here but the second you become self employed and legal you will need a constant supply of work to pay the bills ie social taxes ect if you have no work you still have these to pay wish you all the best if you do not try you will never know . worked 15year here loved it and errned good money as a welder my spanish is as good as my spelling crap

    Cheers Tony and Andy but I suppose you can only listen to advice maybe it will be a little easy to try mainland spain and have a holiday in Tenerife we live and learn
