Everything you need to know about working in Ibiza summer 2019.
If you’ve visited Ibiza before, you’ll know exactly what we mean when we say it’s magical. A beautiful island that’s been home to some of the best parties the world has ever seen, a completely unique location that appeals to everyone from budget travellers to A-list celebrities.
Free spirits, socialites, and soul searchers are all welcome. The beauty of working a season means you’ll have time to experience everything Ibiza has to offer, including world famous pool parties, daytime festivals, and the breath-taking sunset of Café Mambo.
If you’re confident, enthusiastic, and always ready to party then you’ll be perfect for any of the jobs in Ibiza. Our experienced reps will provide you with everything you need to know about the best bars, clubs, restaurants and events. It’s our job to help you every step of the way - finding your dream job will be an absolute breeze...
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.
As one of the livelier resorts, there’s the biggest range of jobs available in Ibiza. From your usual suspects (Bar work, Restaurant work, Ticket Selling) to something a little more fancy (Body Painting, Fire Dancing and Water Sports Instructing), there is literally something for everyone. Check out our jobs tab for the full range of job opportunities and further information!
We work hand in hand with some of the best bars, for example Viva, Soho, Revolution and Entice, as well as long-standing relationships with the likes of the Kiosk, where you can obtain tickets for every event under the Ibizan sun. For more information on previous employers, just give our office a call and we’ll talk you through our partners.
You can work until your heart’s content from May - September, our packages suit all arrival dates, it all depends on when you want to go.
For the die-hards that want to maximise their summer and do a full season, get yourself out there as early as possible. Ibiza will always be busy, so don’t worry if you can’t go out until later on. July/August is peak season with our final date being the 26th July (this runs to the 23rd August). If you want to stay on after this our talented reps will be able to scout out further accommodation for you, so you can see in the infamous Ibiza closing parties in style.
This was my second year with summer takeover and as normal there was no disappointment in it!
Best experience I’ve ever had, everyone makes you feel at home and as your one big family
Summer takeover is not one to miss out on! Met some great people who have become friends for life and had some unreal moments when I was away with the company! I'll be looking to do it all over again.
I went on the 16th of may, was a bit quiet at the start but couple weeks later it got rammed with workers and tourist's. I Had the privilege to work for tidal for the season it was insane. Met so many great people and i have life long friends from it, defiantly doing it again next season. Peace
Just finished my second year abroad with Summer Takeover and they’ve made it just as amazing as the last!
This was definitely a summer to remember. Summer takeover were a massive help on the job front and great people who you could speak to whether you just wanted a chat or if you had a problem. Very friendly and would recommend anyone who want to go out and work through ST. They provided me a job on Tidal as a VIP host and it was hands down the best job on the island, making friends for life.
Where to start? Absolutely tip top service from ST and Nathan the rep was mega helpful
I went with summer takeover and felt so welcomed any troubles or worry’s I had I felt very comfortable going to Dan and Jordan, they also helped me find a job which they made very easy within the first week and most importantly showed us the best time! Deffo recommended.
If you are thinking of going abroad to work look no further than summer takeover.
No regrets! I had the best summer; with the best people.100% recommend and would use summer takeover again!
Best Summer ever 😁
Summer takeover was honestly best experience I had working abroad I’ve gone with this company two years in a row I would definitely recommend summer takeover to anyone who wants to work abroad.
As our most expensive resort to live in, this is reflected by the wages in Ibiza. In peak season you can earn more than €100 per day, work hard and you’ll be rewarded. Much better than picking up shifts in the local pub, no?
The average wage hovers at around €50 per shift - this is a great basic when you consider the potential of tips and commission on top... Time to turn the charm on then!
When working in Ibiza, hours and shifts will vary depending on your job of choice. Ticket sellers can expect to be out enhancing their tan on the job, whilst bar workers will obviously start later. The average shift is between 4-6 hours, which leaves you with plenty of free time to explore the likes of Reggae Reggae beach, take a trip out to Es Vedra, or roam the enchanted streets of Old Ibiza Town.
As the pay is so good and the shifts are so short, most of our Summer Takeover crew work every day to maximise their earnings. See our jobs tab for more information. Work hard, play harder...
