Nestled on the mediterranean coast, Benidorm is hailed to be a 'bucket list' experience by those that have walked its sandy beaches. Another of our resorts that offers amazing value, it might just be one of Spain's best sun traps.
With 6km of beaches, you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking a sunbathing location. Some bars offer happy hour, every hour, so if you want to spend an afternoon off working your way through an extensive cocktail menu, you'll not be left feeling too out of pocket.
As one of the party capitals of Europe, jobs in Benidorm are not hard to come by. It’s the perfect place for working holidays - sun, sea and plenty of cheap booze, what more could you need?
If you want to make the most of your wages by living in a resort where the cost of living is low, Benidorm is for you! There are a variety of jobs on offer that revolve around the tourist industry, as this resort caters to more than just party-goers, so you may find more relaxing restaurant roles available than in other resorts.
All sorts of people get jobs in Benidorm. If you’re a little on the shy side, a working holiday is a great way to bring you out of your shell and if you don’t like the idea of working in the middle of the party, restaurant work is probably for you. For those with bigger personalities, bar work and shot selling are a great way to make your money in Benidorm.
The majority of Summer Takeover guests travel solo, so if you're nervous about heading out on your own don't panic! Once you've secured your place you'll be added into a private Facebook group, and given login details for our very own workers social network, SummerSphere, so you can get chatting to all the other guests before you go.
Most jobs in Benidorm will revolve around the tourist industry: restaurant work, bar work and ticket selling/event work with some of Benidorm’s biggest party brands. Promo and sales staff are always in high demand due to the volume of hen and stag parties that arrive each summer - confident personalities will shine here!
The season runs from May to September. We'd recommend committing to a minimum of two months if you're not able to do the full season so you can experience as much as possible - a month will definitely not be long enough! If it's your first time working abroad, we recommend going out earlier, it's easier to get your bearings when it's a little quieter than to jump in at the deep end mid season.
