If you could be more specific it would be easier.

Neither of you have offers of jobs here, you are coming over to look for work?

What industry do you work in (banking, egaming, pub work etc)

What is your rental budget. etc etc.

Take a look at the Gibraltar estate agents (Bray, BFA, BMI), and you may also consider renting in Spain (considerably cheaper). Here would be a good place to look http://www.aj-andaluciaestates.com/

as well as looking at the estate agents I mentioned above, you should join the following group on facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/youssef189/

Here you will find private rentals, which should be a little cheaper than the estate agents.

As for finding work, try the following sites for egaming:

www.pentasia.com

http://srgeurope.com/

http://www.hyperiongaming.com/

also http://www.reed.co.uk/ although its a UK job site, does have numerous jobs in Gibraltar

Without knowing your circumstances it is hard to know, but would it not be better to try to secure work before you came over?

The vast majority of skilled roles in Gibraltar are filled by overseas candidates that relocate here. Not only would you have the benefit of already having secured work, but you would also receive relocation assistance which generally consists of reasonable shipping expenses and 2-3 months rental allowance.

Maybe your right however we will be trying to secure work before leaving but we have to leave no later than 18 march and if possible I will be continuing my work as a political strategist however that is unlikely as there is only a tiny government in Gibraltar I am highly skilled in law and politics so I don't think I'll find it hard at all to find work

Note that the recruitment agencies are a complete waste of time, Pentasia and SRG Europe are the only ones I recommend
