According to the repeated economic crises that affect the country, the interest of

Argentines

to emigrate

is renewed every certain period of time 

.

Most are looking for

better job opportunities

, economic growth and greater certainty to project future plans without so many surprises.

For reasons of language, descent and similarities in some customs,

Spain continues to be one of the most chosen countries

.

According to the

Immigration Law,

to work in the European country you need a

work and residence visa

, which enables you to carry out a work or professional activity, employed or self-employed and to reside.

For reasons of language and descent, Spain continues to be one of the most chosen countries to emigrate.

But as a preliminary step, it will be essential to know in which

areas

there are more

opportunities to enter the labor market today

, since as a consequence of the pandemic the lack of employment is also currently a problem in Spain.

According to a survey by the Spanish consulting firm Spring Professional of the Adecco Group, there are currently

professions

in which the combination of

soft skills mixed with technological skills

made them protagonists of the labor market.

This is because these needs are more present than ever in companies due to

the ever-changing environment

in which they operate, and the digital transformation process in which most companies are immersed.

For all positions it

is important to know

English, but, in addition to training and experience, what qualities are you looking for?

“The (soft) skills most in demand are having

good communication

;

ability to

adapt to change

;

effective

problem solving

;

speed in

decision making

;

focus on

obtaining results

, and interest in

technological development

”, explained

Mariela Gutiérrez

, a collaborator in ArgentApp's HR area, to

Clarín

.

"At ArgentApp we have a human resources area, where we work hard to first help

rearm the curriculum, since there are Argentine companies that are not known in Spain and where it is necessary to reinforce the description of skills and talents, and not so much the brands, "he said.

What are the 5 most demanded professions in Madrid and Barcelona and how much do they pay?


1. Computer or Telecommunications Engineers

The

DevOps

(set of practices that combines technology operations and software development) are at the

top of the ranking

, especially in the pharmaceutical industry and the banking sector.

50,000 euros gross per year.

Having a master's degree in Finance or Auditing is a plus.

These

profiles,

which may be very different due to their training and specificities, but they 

all share a common denominator: being strategic and being adapted

- or being able to do so quickly - to the uncertainty that 2021 will still entail in many labor aspects.


What do you need to work and live in Spain?


Residence visa for work.

To reside in Spain there are two visa options.

In this way, each citizen will be able to choose which one best suits their needs:

a) Residence visas for employed persons:

this procedure must be carried out in Argentina and for this it is necessary to have obtained a job in Spain.

Previously, the employer must generate a contract for the employee because this is one of the documents that must be presented at the time of processing.

It is an authorization to present at the Consulate of Spain in Buenos Aires.

b) Residence visa for self-employment:

citizens who want to work in Spain independently must apply for this type of visa, either to open a business or work freelance from a computer.

The procedure must also be carried out in Argentina.

The only way you can legally live in Spain without a work visa is with a European passport.

In addition, there is another resource that allows you to live in Spain:

c) European passport:

anyone who has it can live, circulate and work in Spain with total freedom.

It is the only way you can live in the country legally without a work visa.

However, after 90 days and if you are going to continue in the country, it is necessary to register in the Central Registry of Foreigners, according to the official site of the Consulate of Spain in Buenos Aires.

The

NIE (identification number for foreigners)

is an extremely important document if you want to live in Spain.

Not only does it allow you to reside in Spain legally, but it will also give you the possibility of:

  • Register with Social Security


  • Open a bank account at any bank


  • Open a business Work in Spain


  • Buying a car or a home


  • Make the income statement


  • Access public services.

Obtaining the NIE number

is possible in two ways: as a citizen of the European Union (Italians, French, Germans, etc.), or with another visa or residence permit that does not belong to the European Union.

The

application for the NIE

can be made at the Foreigners Office or at the Police Stations of the place of residence in Spain.

It can be done in person or through a legal representative.
