Living and working in Mallorca

As a relaxed, friendly and cosmopolitan island, working in Mallorca has many benefits. From the beautiful beaches and coves spread across its 550km coastline, to the majestic world heritage Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, the splendid landscape means you are never far from the mountains or sea. The international city of Palma de Mallorca is also close by, one of Spain’s major cities, steeped in history, wonderful architecture, shops and restaurants.

(The added benefit of cheap and short haul transport links to the UK and Europe - via Palma de Mallorca Airport – means that home and some of Europe’s finest cities are only a short journey away. Obviously, currently there are limitations to this but Spain itself, of course, offers myriad opportunities for travel, and residents enjoy a fantastic perk of a discount of 75% on all internal travel such as planes and ferries. Education restrictions are currently far more flexible than the UK with schools fully open.)
