Moving to Malta & Looking for a Job

Working Conditions in Malta

Since Malta joined the European Union, this has eased the mobility of EU workers and means that employers have access to a much larger pool of workers than before.

Admittedly, there may be some inherent barriers like language and culture that make this process challenging. For this reason, the European Union has purposely set up the
European Employment Services (EURES).

EURES provides information and advice on employment opportunities in other European countries, as well as information on conditions of work, health and safety issues, accommodation, the education, health care, training opportunities, transport, culture and the general lifestyle in particular countries.

The Employment and Training Corporation’s EURES advisers will be able to guide you with
information on how to tap into this ever-growing pool of human resources.

Employment Licences

Since 30th April 2011, citizens from the EEA / Switzerland and their family members, do not require an employment licence to work in Malta. With respect to citizens outside the EEA / Switzerland an
employment licence is required from the Employment and Training Corporation. This is subject to labour market considerations.
