Employing Maltese Nationals

Jobsplus can assist you when it comes to recruiting employees.

Through the newly designed Jobsplus website, employers are able to:

  • Select the desired knowledge and competencies required by future employee/s;
  • View the profiles of the matched jobseekers;
  • Short-list candidates;
  • Interact directly with them by inviting them for an interview.  

At any stage of the process, employers are able to widen or narrow the selection criteria so as to increase or decrease the pool of matched jobseekers.

To be able to use this facility employers are invited to login to their Jobsplus website account and create a vacancy. The first part of the process will request information about the vacancy that will allow for matching with all Jobsplus website users.

If you want to proceed to publish the vacancy you may do so by clicking the publish button. You can find detailed user guides on how to use the website and its functions here.

Alternatively, Jobsplus can assist in the recruitment process through its Recruitment Services Unit (RSU), by completing the Jobsplus Vacancy Profile Form*, which can be submitted by email to [email protected].

Once the vetting of vacancy is complete, the Jobsplus team matches the vacancy with its pool of registered jobseekers.  Automatic job matching is based on:

  • Competencies;
  • Qualifications;
  • Work Experience;
  • Other personal attributes and skills. 

Following the job matching process, a list of the best possible candidates is sent directly by email and/or letter that allows the employer to proceed in calling candidates for an interview. Candidates are notified and invited to apply for the vacancy.

In addition to the service above, the vacancy will also be made available on the:

  • Jobsplus website,
  • Job centres,
  • EURES Portal (the vacancy will be available to Europeans who wish to work in Malta) and the daily,
  • Automailer (this is an automatic email that Jobsplus sends to subscribed jobseekers daily).

Jobsplus offers other services to facilitate the recruitment process for employers through its personalised recruitment service; mass outreach through automailer, open days and recruitment drives.

Personalised Recruitment Service (PRS)

This is a customised recruitment service offered to employers wanting to fill multiple vacancies at the same time.  This service helps employers save time and resources and may include:

  • Assessing employers’ requested vacancies;
  • Outreaching jobseekers;
  • Filtering and short listing applications of interested candidates;
  • Carrying out jobseekers’ assessments;
  • Job matching;
  • Submitting final list of suitable candidates.

Mass Outreach through Automailer

Jobsplus has over thousands of subscribers who receive vacancy notifications on a daily basis.  When employers encounter difficulty in finding a suitable candidate and/or have multiple vacancies to fill, Jobsplus can issue a customised email advertising the vacancy/vacancies amongst its subscribers.

Open Days and Recruitment Drives

Open Days and Recruitment Drives are aimed at attracting persons who are looking for a job (not necessarily registering for work with Jobsplus) or employed persons who would like to change their job. Recruitment drives help companies recruit suitable staff in an efficient and effective manner. These open days/recruitment drives are held either at the employer’s establishment or at a different location (including Jobsplus).

An Open Day / Recruitment Drive may include:

  • Mass outreach amongst jobseekers (registrants or not);
  • Invitation to jobseekers to attend an information session given by the employer to highlight the various job opportunities available within the company, conditions being offered and other relevant information;
  • Various filtering pre-selection tests (eg.  dexterity tests, written tests) depending on the employers’ needs;
  • One-to-one interviews with the interested candidates. Such interviews are carried out by the employer and Jobsplus personnel may sit on the interview as anonymous observers to take note of jobseekers’ behaviour and performance.
