How to change from student card to work for an employer
5 December, 2022duguech
One of the options to work in Spain if you are a student is to change your student status to work as an employee.
In order to apply for the modification of the Student Stay to a Residence and Work Authorization, you will need a job offer. That is to say, that a company offers you an employment contract since the procedure is done by the employer.
- Certificate of studies, having completed training or internships.
- Employment contract signed by the employer and the employee.
- The conditions of the contract must be subject to the regulations in force regarding salary, which must be equal to or higher than the minimum interprofessional salary.
- The employer making the request must be registered in the Social Security system and be up to date with its tax obligations.
- The employer must have sufficient economic, material or personal means for its business project and to meet the obligations assumed in the contract with the worker.
- Not to have prohibited the entrance in Spain and not to appear as rejectable in the territorial space of countries with which Spain has signed an agreement in such sense.
- Not to have a criminal record in Spain or in other previous countries of residence during the last five years.
- If applicable, not to be within the period of commitment not to return to Spain that the foreigner has assumed when returning voluntarily to his/her country of origin.
- The national employment situation must allow for hiring. There is a catalog of possible occupations that are difficult to cover, which limits the hiring of foreign workers. However, with the recent reform of the Alien Law, this catalog of occupations has been expanded. Similarly, the hiring deadlines have also been modified to make it easier for employers to hire more foreign talent.
