Hi, Bit of a large subject this one, but can anybody offer advice on moving to the Madrid area. Residents permits - difficult to obtain? Schools - easy to get into once residents permit received? Rental - What is the situation regarding long term property rental, easy to find? Jobs - There are no jobs in Valencia for experienced Banking Consultants/Analysts (which is where i live now), does Madrid offer a more progressive job market? Any help is gratefully received Cheers

Are lectures at Spanish Unis open to the general public? The reason I ask is that I would be interested in going along to lectures just to learn a bit of Spanish. Would I have to check it was ok with the professor first?

Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone can give me an indication of the real state of the Spanish job market in Madrid and how it might affect my plan to move over from London. Basically I am researching the possibility of relocating to Madrid as am looking to move out of London and live abroad again, with Spain being my preferred location but the news over here would have us believe that there is no chance of getting work over there...   Can anyone summarise what the situation is like for expats?  Are there many firms that would hire native English speakers with some Spanish but not fluent? I'm currently based in London and work as a Sales Manager for an Online Media company.  Clearly I speak native level English and worked in Paris for 3 years so can also speak fluent/professional level French.  My Spanish however is only proficient for conversation etc - although keen to move over to Spain and become fluent in future!   Currently earn £40k basic plus pretty decent bonuses.  Not too concerned about earning less over in Spain, if the quality of life is better I'd accept lower but any indication on earning potential would be greatly welcomed for budgeting etc. Was also considering getting some teaching qualifications (TEFL/CELTA) as a bit of an insurance policy, so as to be able to work as teacher or do some tuition to top up earnings or as an option if I can't find anything more commercial. Any advice greatly appreciated and might earn you a cana or two if I ever end up over in Spain with you! :)

We are new to Madrid from Melbourne and are looking for an area to live in while we are in Spain. I have to keep my darling happy so need an area that we can comfortably contact other English speaking people. I work at the southern end of the Airport in IT so travel to work by car. Social life is important. Are there any groups of people that get together ( I am ex military also)?
