Valencia Expat Guide
Start Your New Life in Valencia
The main industries in Valencia include tourism, construction, and manufacturing, but it is also worth noting that TEFL teachers are in demand. With one of the largest ports in Spain, importing and exporting are important employers, with food and beverages among the main exports. Manufacturing in Valencia focuses on chemicals, textiles, shipbuilding, and metallurgy. Expats hoping to work in Valencia will need a strong understanding of Spanish, and those who can also speak German will find more opportunities open to them. It is advisable to secure employment before entering Valencia to avoid the high unemployment rates.
Culture lovers can explore the history and art of the many museums, and will surely not be able to resist the innovative and impressive City of Arts and Sciences. Made up of seven different buildings, this unique complex houses massive exhibitions including marine life, sculpture, opera and performing arts, plant life, and DNA. Sports fans also have a wide variety to choose from, including, football, basketball, rugby union, and soccer, or you can get involved with hiking, cycling climbing, and skiing facilities all within easy access of the city.
With a long history, classical architecture, and many landmarks restored to encourage foreign visitors, expats will find it difficult to resist joining the groups of tourists to marvel at the beauty of Valencia.
