If you are looking to spend time this year working abroad then a great option is applying for one of the many summer jobs Malta has to offer. This gem of an island located in the Mediterranean sea attracts thousands of travelers each year who want to explore this tiny island.
Landing one of various summer jobs in Malta which are offered each summer is a great way to spend an extended length of time on the island and experience life here not only as a tourist but as a local and someone who lives on the island. The main tourist season for the island runs right through the summer months starting in June and ending in September. During this time, many businesses on the island plus many overseas holiday companies employ additional staff members to help with the increase in business created by the arrival of tourists from all over Europe and the rest of the world.
Malta is a tiny island, and is in fact one of the smallest countries in the world. Many people think it is part of France, Spain or Italy but it is in fact its own nation and has been this way since the 1960's. The tourist industry is the main industry on the island and each year visitors are attracted to the island looking forward to enjoying the beautiful beaches, clear blue waters and amazing hospitality offered by the locals. The fortress city of Valletta is the capital of the island and has a remarkable history dating back thousands of year. This is an amazing place to visit and also offers numerous Malta jobs especially during the main summer months. Opportunities are available in restaurants, bars, tourist shops, museums and even in language schools.
What to expect working in Malta
If you plan on working in malta for the summer months then expect to have a fantastic time. This small island has so much to offer with a rich history and a nation of people that are extremely warm and hospitable. It is important to remember that when you are considering working in this summer destination or any other that you are there to work and most of the summer jobs Malta offers will require you to work long hours for minimal wages and maybe only one day off per week. This can be tough when you are living in your home country but when you are in a beautiful sun drenched country like Malta during the summer months it can be extremely frustrating to see other people enjoying themselves on the beach or by the pool while you have to work.
Most jobs in the summer tourist industry are not extremely well paid and accommodation can be pricey if you don't get to the country early in the season and secure accommodation before the most affordable apartments are taken.
Other things to consider are what employment visa requirements you may need. Traveling to a country for a short period on holiday is one thing but when you are looking to travel and work for an extended period you need to look into exactly what the visa requirements are for that country. Malta allows nationals from certain countries to work there, especially people from other countries in the European Union. However if you are a citizen of a different country you will want to check into the visa requirements before you start the application process for any summer jobs in Malta.
Getting to Malta
Generally there are two main ways that you can get to the island of Malta. The first option is to fly into the international airport of Malta. This airport is well served by most major cities within the rest of europe and during the busy summer months daily flights into the island from all over europe and the rest of the world make it very accessible. The other option is to get the ferry from either Italy or Tunisia, Virtu Ferries is one of the main companies that offer ferry services to the island. This is also another option when considering jobs in Malta. Most travel hubs such as airports, ferry companies and terminals require extra staff during the summer months and offer a variety of summer jobs.
