If you're thinking of coming to work in Spain or you're already here and are looking for a new job or career change, here are the jobs that will be in demand in 2023.


The new year is a time when many start thinking about getting a job, possibly changing careers or making plans for a future move

According to the Spanish site El Economista, 2023 isn’t looking like it’s going to be a great year for employment in general, due to the current economic situation around the world and the fact that big tech companies in the US have already started to lay off some of their employees. 

Despite this, there has been an upward growth trend in certain careers and positions in some industries, and the professional business network, LinkedIn has listed 25 jobs that it believes will be in demand in Spain in 2023. 


These are the jobs that have grown the most in the last five years and are expected to be big in 2023.

This list can provide you with insight into which industries you can find long-term opportunities in, as well as helping you to identify the most in-demand skills and availability of positions. 

According to LinkedIn, out of this list, the ones involved in the cybersecurity, sales, logistics, financial and sustainability sectors are the ones with the most professional opportunities heading into 2023.

While many of these jobs may require you to speak Spanish, there are many international companies in Spain, particularly in the big cities of Madrid and Barcelona where it may not be necessary.
