Jobs in other EU states for multi-lingual low hours pilots?

Hi all,

need to do more research on this my-self but was just wondering if anyone else out there has any thoughts.
Basically I am about to start ATPL training with a view to getting an airline job. Have heard much about the difficulties faced by low hours pilots in getting uk based jobs however am thinking I might be able to hedge my bets by going for something in France or Spain at the same time. (I can speak prety good french and spanish and could easily achieve fluency by working at it at the same time as doing my training, possibly gaining a formal business qualification if necessary).

Do French and Spanish airlines take on low hours pilots with no type ratings?

To what extent might they be biased towards pilots from their own countries?

Would they be looking for perfect spanish/ french or would very good be sufficient?

Which country would be the better bet? (im guessing france as it has the stronger economy (I think!))
