Job Hiring in Malta for Filipino Workers

Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz said on Thursday that jobs are awaiting Filipino workers in Malta , a small country in the Mediterranean

Citing a report of Nasser S. Mustaffa, Philippine labor attache stationed in Tripoli , Libya, she said that Maltese nationals wanted the services of Filipino caregivers primarily because of their efficiency and love of work.

Aside from caregivers, the possible job opportunities there will be seafarers, and service industry workers.

“Labor attache Mustaffa reported that he had traveled to Valletta , the Maltese capital, to meet with the 1,000—strong Filipino community and assess the prospects of deploying more workers there. His assessment was positive,” Baldoz said in a statement.

Labatt Mustaffa said Filipino caregivers he had spoken to in Malta , a prime tourist destination, expressed preference to stay and work in this prime tourist destination in the Mediterranean because of high salaries.

“Malta ’s minimum wage is 620 Euro (US$ 820) and Filipino workers there receive not less than this minimum wage amount. Besides, Filipino workers in Malta are allowed to do part-time jobs after eight hours of regular work,” he said.

Meanwhile, Baldoz warned jobseekers desiring to work in Malta to check their prospective employers, as well as their recruitment agencies, with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) to ensure that there are valid job orders and that they would undergo legal application and deployment processes.

“There is no Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Malta . It is under the jurisdiction of our POLO in Libya and it is our POLO in Tripoli which will verify employment contracts for Malta ,” she said.
