      Hi...Newby here

      :v_SPIN:Hi my name is Carole and myself and hubby is wanting to start a new life in Lanzarote pref around Puerto Del Carmen/Matagorda area. We need info to find out where the local ExPats hang out to get advice on how to go about living and working abroad and to access the job situation in Lanzarote. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated via this website also. Cheers......

      Hi Carole, welcome to BA. I think you will find most of the expats in Lanzarote are based in Tias or Puerto Del Carmen.
      Work wise, what kind of job are you looking for, do you speak Spanish?
      I am not sure if you have children but there is an English speaking school Colegio Hispano Britanico - British School in Lanzarote

      Thanks for the info Kate, fortunately for us the children are grown up so no schools to sort out. I currently work in a NHS hospital in the Cardiology Dept so if there is any work in their hospital would be great, failing that I am currently in the process of brushing up my Nail and Beauty skills as I have certificates in this area or I have qualifications in Travel and Tourism and worked in an airport as an Aircraft Dispatcher and my husband is a time served Heating and Plumbing Engineer but can do anything from electrics, plastering, building work, etc. We have both enrolled at a language college and start next month that will teach us from beginners spanish to level 2/3/4 however far we want to go. We have holidayed a lot in the last few years to Lanzarote and we next go at Easter but this time we want to locate the ExPats to give us their version of life on the island especially work wise. We want to really put a lot of planning into this to make sure it will work for us as we would both be giving up our jobs back home and the last thing we want is for it not to work out hence why I want to get as much info in the next year as we hope to be living there by summer 2012.....Carole. x

      Hello from a Lanzarote resident!

      Just joined today as a Google search brought me here - and I was about to mosey over and introduce myself... but I thought I'd do a quick search for "Lanzarote" and found you.

      I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have about living here. I haven't found the rules about posting links yet... so I won't for now... but I do actually run a hobby blog that is all about moving to, and living in, Lanzarote.

      Good luck with the move - and yell if you need anything... I'm always happy to help.

      PS: Easier to find work in Puerto del Carmen than Matagorda... but better to live in Matagorda as far as quietness at night goes. Both sweeping generalisations, but a good starting point. I'm down the south in Playa Blanca, but I get up to Carmen quite often. Was up there on Tuesday this week for a few meetings.
