Visa and employment in Barcelona

Hi all
I was wondering if anyone could give me some honest advice or info. I am an Australian with extensive business and management experience in the health, non-profit and social sectors. I recently spent some weeks in Barcelona and fell in love with the city and it's people, culture, and way of life. I would jump at the opportunity to move to Barcelona but upon my limited research and enquiries it seems to be particularly difficult to gain a work permit unless you already have a job secured, however it seems that to apply or secure a job you to have a work permit? I have also been told that given the current economic climate and unemployment issues in Spain it makes it even more difficult. Does anyone have any further advice or info about non-EU foreigners seeking work in Barcelona? I'm hoping for a glimmer of hope in my quest..Thanks for your time
