Moving to Gibraltar

Post Posted: Wed Jan 28, 2009 7:59 pm

Hi everyone,

On the 20th Apri myself, my partner and our baby are relocating to Gibraltar My mum lives in Southern spain so are going to stay thereu nti we find jobs... My partner has experience in admin, vehicle rental and banking and is educated to NVQ and I am educated to degree level and have experience in admin and vehicle rental. First question...what are job opportunities like in Gibraltar??

We are british residents and I have been looking on the internet and am getting mysef confused..do we receive any benefits if we are living in Gibraltar...

I have been to Gibraltar many times as a visitor so know what it is like...we are still in 2 minds whether to move to Gib Or the coast in spain..does anyone have any opinions or experiences??

Thanks

Loz

Not really relevant but I am looking to retire there in a couple of years and completely agree it is not easy to find info. All I have established is that you can transfer yout NHS to that of GIBS. There seems to be a reasonable market of rental and property for purchase when I was there last week. However rentals dependant on your UK location you may consider expensive and it is nearly all flats. It is much cheaper to buy or rent across the border. Job wise you can access the Gib Chronicle and there employment wesite. That said I would not anticipate a lot of openings as knowing a few people there many move to the UK and EU for jobs. Keep us posted, good luck.
