I moved to Valencia, Spain in 2018 with no job lined up. I had left a lovely role back in Scotland, as marketing manager for a multi-arts centre, and I was hoping to somehow find something similar in my new home town. Little did I know, that apart from having to be fluent in Spanish (and Valencian, often the spoken language in the public and cultural sector), you need to know people. I had neither of those benefits, so I had to think of an alternative. How was I going to earn an income?
