Both me and my girlfriend are EU nationals (same country) and recently I moved to Madrid/Spain to work at a big company. For the last several months we are trying to find her a job as well, but given that she has studied Literature and she speaks English and a bit of French, it's proving somewhat difficult and frustrating to be honest.
We have tried applying to all big recruitment/interim companies like Randstad, Manpower, Page, Adecco etc but also private schools for teaching/tutoring etc, however nothing came out of it. We also went to many places/stores/companies and gave her CV, we talked to people, networked as much as possible, but still nothing.
She of course plans to improve her CV by learning Spanish and doing a Masters in something more catchy, but that will take time, so in the meantime what other options are there?
I thought that maybe hiring a personal recruitment agent, who would work with us and help her find something/anything (for a fee of course) would be an option, as they are usually more well connected. So, my question is: how can I find a personal recruitment agent in Madrid/Spain whom we could hire to help her find a job?
PS I have already asked Randstad et al, but they don't provide these kind of services and since they work for the employers, they don't really care that much for another candidate.
