Are you thinking of an English course and a job in Malta? If you want to study English in Malta, you will need to have an adequate budget, as all courses will have to be fully paid up before your arrival.
It’s possible, if you want, to cushion the costs with a part-time job, for example, on afternoons or evenings. This will usually help you speak English even after classes. You can find a part-time job at any time of the year; from March to October, the chances are higher because of the high season. If you are thinking about a catering industry job, you usually don’t need a curriculum; it’s enough in 90% of cases to enter and propose yourself.
There are over 600 restaurants, pubs, and ice cream parlours in Malta and nearly 200 hotels. So if you’re preparing a curriculum, it’s better to make it short, obviously in English and not necessarily in a European format: it’s not very widespread in Malta.
Better to include a Maltese phone number: buy a phone card as soon as you get to Malta; otherwise, few employers will be willing to call you.
Finding part-time work in your country is almost impossible. You will not find all job offers on the internet, and above all, no employer will be interested in your “desire to work” if you are not already in Malta and don’t already have accommodation. The part-time pay for students is quite low, typically around 6 Euro per hour. With a part-time of 5 hours a day, your salary will be, for example, 30 Euros per day.
In a month, you will be able to cushion your course costs by around 600 Euro. Then, depending on your skills, you can search and find jobs in many different sectors with higher pay. Nevertheless, it’s indispensable to be in Malta before looking for a job.
Malta is one of Europe’s countries with the lowest unemployment rate, just after Germany and Austria, and the lowest unemployment rate in the Mediterranean.
Contrary to what you think, Malta doesn’t only live in tourism but also in other areas.
There are, in fact, areas that represent the towing of the whole economy of the country: in addition to tourism and related services such as catering, also financial engineering, e-gaming, transport, pharmaceuticals, The ICT sector, the maritime sector, the training sector, the wholesale trade sector and closely related to import-export, the industrial and handicraft sector, the real estate sales and construction sector, the Naval, air and intermodal transport.
Many of these sectors have developed thanks to strong incentives that attract foreign investments. As a result, labor costs are, in fact, lower than in many Eurozone countries, tax incentives are high, plus the political and economic stability is one of the best in Europe.
Foreign companies based in Malta are numerous, so there are numerous employees in every sector and many States working in Malta.
Over 30 private employment agencies and companies deal with selecting staff worldwide for companies based in Malta. The agencies select very “skilled” profiles, which means that for jobs that don’t require special skills, you will not need to turn to job agencies to find employment.
However, if your professional profile is high-level and your English language knowledge is high, you can find high-profile jobs and get paid very well, thanks to the job agencies.
Another way to find work is to enroll at Jobs Plus, the employment and job placement office. Working in Malta for high-level profiles means finding opportunities for professional growth, good salaries and contracts for an indefinite period from the first moment.
