Our 6 Step System for Recruiting in Spain

Step 1 – Getting Started:  We establish the type of candidate you are seeking and your desired timeline for hiring. It is important that we take the time to get to know your company. We learn about your culture, goals, and work with your management team to align the recruitment search with your company’s objectives.  

Step 2 – Talent Research: After understanding your company’s goals for the talent search, we begin targeting Spain’s top talent sources and identifying the best candidates available. 

Step 3 – Early-Stage Interviews: We begin interviewing from our refined list of potential candidates to narrow the options to only the best matches for your open position. Our team then develops a final candidate pipeline and meets with your executive team to discuss which prospective employee will be the best fit for your company’s goals. 

Step 4 – Evaluating the Top Candidates: After performing comprehensive background checks and character references, we finalize our candidate evaluation process and bring our recommendations to the client’s executive board.

Step 5 – Candidate Selection: Once we have met with the executive team and decided on the best candidate for the role, we help the client with the salary and benefit negotiations before organizing and submitting the official offer letter to the candidate. 

Step 6 – Continued Support: Our team at GlobalPEO will continue to work with your executive team to deliver support for employee and team evaluations, development, and performance improvement throughout the lifespan of your partnership with the employee. 

The Recruitment Method in Spain

It is essential to be familiar with the nuances of Spain’s complex recruiting and hiring regulations in order to stay legally compliant. It is important to note that information pertaining to employee criminal records is highly confidential and employers do not have the right to access an employee’s criminal data unless the applicant shares it voluntarily. 

Therefore, an applicants candidacy should always be judged based on the merit of the prospective employee without discrimination of any kind. 


Spain's Anti Discrimination & Compliance Laws

The legal work week in Spain is 40 hours, and Spain’s Workers Statute states that employers are allowed to distribute the total hours in an irregular fashion throughout the year as long as the arrangement abides by the rules stated in the latest Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

Employers are required by law to pay employees for any overtime hours worked. Paid overtime hours must not exceed 80 hours in a single year by an individual employee, and employers have the option to either compensate their employees for the overtime hours worked, or provide them with additional time off within 4 months of when they last worked overtime hours. 

Hiring + Onboarding Employees in Spain

The hiring process in Spain requires that employees provide a written employment contract to all employees. Spanish employees often negotiate for indefinite-term contracts, which grants them with higher job security and typically is accompanied by a higher salary. It is important to clearly state the following in your employment contracts in Spain:

  • Compensation details (including bonuses and commissions)
  • Requirements for termination
  • Probationary periods and severance
  • Employee benefits
