The location

The Maltese archipelago lies at the centre of the Mediterranean, 93km south of Sicily and 288 km north of Africa, and consists of three inhabited islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. Situated in the heart of the sparkling Mediterranean Sea and brimming with culture, the narrow meandering streets of Malta’s ancient towns and villages are crowded with Renaissance cathedrals and Baroque palaces, while the countryside is dotted with the oldest known structures in the world.

Malta’s position in the middle of the Mediterranean puts it within easy reach of a long list of destinations. By air, you can make it to Barcelona, Rome, Munich or Athens in two hours or less. Cairo, Tel Aviv, London and Paris are only a little bit further away.

Malta has been awarded prizes for having some of the cleanest seas in Europe and boasts stunning beaches, making it the ideal location for swimming and water sports. There are about 100 registered dive sites in Malta and lists of top 10 dives in Europe usually count 2 – 4 from the Maltese list.

We know it’s important to balance career opportunities with lifestyle and we’ll talk through your plans and will get to know you to make sure we find the right role in the right location. 

Once we have secured a job for you, we’ll manage the Medical Registration and Visa application process, and support you (and your family) with the relocation itself.
