Malta, officially the Republic of Malta, consists of the main island Malta and the smaller islands of Gozo and Comino. The country covers an area of 316 km²; compared, it is about twice the size of Washington, DC, and would fit into Luxembourg eight times. Malta has a population of over 500,000 people.

Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. It's a nation known for historic sites related to a succession of rulers including the Romans, Moors, Knights of Saint John, French and British. It has numerous fortresses, megalithic temples and the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, a subterranean complex of halls and burial chambers dating to circa 4000 B.C

¿Dónde están los trabajadores disponibles?

Working in Malta

We are looking for workers to fill in vacancies in almost all sectors in Malta. All job applications must contain a curriculum vitae (CV) written in English and a covering letter, copies of certificates and references. Job applications should be typed.

The curriculum vitae is usually no longer than two pages. The standard European curriculum vitae format (Europass) is recommended. This can be downloaded from  Simplicity, conciseness and precision are recommended. The CV should include the following: personal details, education, knowledge of languages, computer skills, in particular skills, professional experience and information about hobbies.

Application letters/emails are usually concise and no longer than a few paragraphs. The letter is a vital tool to give the employer information about career prospects, educational background, professional experience and availability. Express interest in the vacancy and use the accompanying covering letter to convince the potential interviewer that you are qualified to fill the vacancy.

Some employers provide their own application forms to be filled in by applicants. Certain forms are standard, while others ask more about previous work experience and use more unstructured (open-ended) questions. After viewing the CV, the employer can either rank the candidates on a shortlist or call applicants for an interview. In some cases, a medical examination may be required prior to employment. A medical certificate is issued by a recognised medical professional declaring whether a candidate meets the standard required and whether or not they are fit for the specified job.
