Recruitment of foreign nationals to work in Malta

One of the issues which continues to trouble employers is their inability to find staff. It is no secret that over the past few years, a number of foreign employees, mainly third country nationals have been recruited to work in Malta in various sectors including health care, catering, industrial, tourism and construction amongst others.  Given the small size of the population, it is not surprising that Malta needs foreign workers to be able to sustain the economic activity that is being generated by our country. 

Through our foreign agent, a recruitment agent in the Philippines which is licensed and authorized under Philippine laws with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) to recruit and deploy Filipino employees for overseas employment, we are able to assist Maltese employers to find suitable Filipino employees to work in Malta.  The employees include professionals as well as skilled and non-skilled  workers.   ACT can assist local employers to recruit third country nationals in various positions including but not limited to: 

  1. Fully qualified accountants and auditors
