What to expect in Ibiza
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.
What type of people get jobs in Ibiza?
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.
What type of jobs are available in Ibiza?
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.

What Are People Saying About Summer Takeover?
Summer last year in one word... UNREAL! Ibiza was out of this world and couldn’t have done it without the help of my Rep David. He set me up a job trial at Linkers bar pr’ing and I loved it, thanks so much Summer Takeover
Lauren Ord, Ibiza 2016
Ibiza? DONE! Always wanted to work a season and Summer Takeover sorted me right out. My Rep Ben helped me get a job at Entice on the Strip working behind the bar. Paid really well and got free drinks all night, can’t complain can you?

When is the best time to go to Ibiza?
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.
What are the wages like in Ibiza?
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!
How many hours a day will I be working in Ibiza?
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...
