Whilst all EU nationals have the right to find employment in Spain without a work permit, finding employment may not prove to be easy if you are outside of the major towns and cities, or away from the tourist hotspots and do not speak Spanish.
It is a good start to have some idea of the kind of work you are looking to do and in which industry. Tourism and real estate are the areas where there are most opportunities for English-speakers, however many jobs require Spanish as well.

Many people, especially with a trade in much demand (such as builders, plumbers, electricians) opt for self-employment, and others start or buy an existing business.

Whatever you are planning to do you will need to obtain your NIE number (see Residency & Tax: Fiscal Identity Numbers) from a police station with a foreigners’ department.
