YOUNG Brits jetting off to Spain this summer have been warned some popular jobs could see them jailed.
The UK Border Force has launched a campaign advising travellers to Mallorca not to be taken in by offers of ‘off-the-books’ work at bars and clubs.
It comes as Foreign Office figures revealed 80% of young Brits jailed on the Spanish holiday island had been entinced into taking undocumented jobs.
“The dream of summer can be turned into a nightmare by unscrupulous employers,” warned UK Immigration minister Caroline Nokes.
The summer jobs on offer often involve long hours at low pay and see workers stranded in poor accommodation.
Brits have been warned not to hand over their passport and to get proper contracts before taking up offers of work.
The campaign has also been backed by the modern slavery charity Unseen.
