When looking for a job in Malta, there is plenty that you can do to proactively find work. Malta is known for it’s huge iGaming, tourism and financial sectors, so you’ll find most jobs will come under those industries, but whatever experience you have, read this guide to give yourself the best chance at finding your dream job in Malta.
– Word of Mouth
Malta is a super small island and one great way to get a new job (it’s worked for me!) is simply word of mouth. If you have friends and connections, let them know you’re looking and you may just find that they know someone, or know someone who knows someone and from a simple introduction you may end up with your dream job!
– Social Media
Sounds a bit odd maybe, but if you do a little searching online you’ll find loads of ‘job in Malta’ type groups on Facebook that you can join. Companies post their current availabilities and people post the kind of roles they’re after. There are also lots of expat forums online with a recruitment section, so keep a look out for those.
Whatever field you are in, when looking for work in Malta, do your research to see which companies on the island fit that category and contact them directly. Even if they’re not advertising for roles, it doesn’t mean they don’t need someone and if you have good experience or come across as proactive and hard working, they may just hire you anyway. This has worked for us more than once- we simply searched online for gaming companies located here (as our experience is in gaming) and sent them our CVs.
– Recruitment Companies
Malta is full of recruitment companies who dedicate themselves to pairing the right job seeker with the right company. These are free for job seekers to use, but remember that if companies use a recruiter, they have to pay a finders fee. You don’t need to worry about that but just bear it in mind as you really have to wow them in order for them to believe you’d be worth the (usually rather hefty) fee that they’ll have to pay. It doesn’t matter what industy you are in, there will be a recruitment site for you. There are lots of iGaming focused recruitment sites in Malta, but also Quad Consultancy who have a number of roles from lots of different industries.
