Spain - Salaries
However, the average net salary in Spain is much higher although this depends upon the sector that you are working in. For example, the average monthly salary for a dentist in Spain is around €13,500. Bankers are next in line with a monthly average of €8500 and engineers can expect to earn an average of €4200 per month. A sales manager can expect in the region of €3900 and those who work as a manager can expect just below this at €3500 per month. A dental assistant can earn in the region of €3000 per month and those who work in technical support services can expect around €2800 per month. Those who work in editing services can earn around €2500 per month while a worker in the diplomatic service can earn around €2400. The average monthly salary for a teacher is around €2300.
There are regional variations. It should be remembered that some regions are wealthier than others, so a restaurant worker can probably expect to earn more in an establishment in the Costa del Sol or the capital city of Madrid than they would if working in a fairly rural area. Average yearly earnings differ according to the city that you are in.
In Madrid the average annual salary currently stands at €36,902 and this is one of the highest rates. In Barcelona the annual average is close at €33,327, but in Valencia it drops dramatically at €24,512. Bilbao has a much higher rate at €34,596 and in Alicante it is much lower at €22,692. The average salary in Murcia is even lower at €20,226 and in Oviedo it is a little higher at €24,566. It should be remembered that cities such as Madrid have large financial centres and other industries where workers can expect high salaries and this can distort the figures somewhat.
