It offers a guaranteed work contract, a realistic salary and everything else that goes with a Spanish permanent contract. I have had one person who wanted to know why it was written in Spanish and one person who failed to turn up for an interview twice!

I know I would have had more applicants if I had written in English or Swedish BUT absolute fluency in spoken and written Spanish is a pre-requisite so it saved me all the “I get by” dreamers.
