Spain - National Level

Where are the available workers?


According to information from the SEPE Occupations Observatory, the consequences of the economic crisis have been felt in the Spanish labour market, where some production sectors still have an excess of jobseekers who are not very likely to find a job.


In general, there is still a high number of jobseekers in relation to the number of job openings in low-skilled occupations. In the industrial sector, this applies to manufacturing labourers and freight handlers. In the service sector, it affects cleaners and assistants in offices, domestic cleaners and home helps, receptionists and shelf stackers, cashiers and ticket clerks, car, taxi and van drivers, shop sales assistants and waiting staff.
