I work with a great company in Torremolinos called Pepaloves. They are a women's fashion clothing brand that sells to both online and physical shops worldwide. You can check out their web site at pepaloves.es.
They are seeking a bilingual (English/Spanish) person to work as a fashion buyer in their Torremolinos offices. It is an entry level position and (I believe) they want to pay about 8 euros an hour. It would be a part time position of at least 25 hours a week, and you would be working in the mornings. I can say it's a lovely, laid back work environment with great coworkers, and it is a great opportunity to gain experience with a growing company. The job also offers all perks of a job contract, including vacation and enrollment in the Spanish public health system. Permission to work in Spain is required.
If you're interested, you can either apply on Infojobs or contact me, and I will pass your CV directly to the hiring manager. They want to make a decision very very soon, so please apply by Friday, Nov 29 at the latest! Here is the job posting:
