Now we need two new people to join our team and help us move to the next level in the design and promotion of content on our social media channels and our website.
These are not paid posts - they are voluntary, but in return for your professional skills and the time you put in we can offer you the satisfaction that comes with helping others to move to or settle in Spain. You’ll also make new friends as part of our lively team.
Perhaps you are already living in Spain and looking for a new interest?
We are looking for regular help with content management on our social media (Faceboook, Instagram, You Tube and Twitter) and our website, which are vital tools in promoting our services and engaging with our audiences to increase their support and extend the reach of Age in Spain.
