Open-a-Recruitment-Company-in-MaltaOpening recruitment companies is a common practice in most of the European countries in order to facilitate relations between employers and employees and Malta makes no exception. Considering the highly trained Maltese workforce and the development of the outsourcing services market in the last few years, investors have started opening recruitment companies in Malta. The law allowing Maltese companies to conduct mediation activities between workers and employers is the Employment Agencies Regulations Act issued in 1995 (L.N.126 and 127). Mentions about Maltese recruitment agencies are also made in the Employment Services Act.

The application procedure to open a recruitment company in Malta

The first step when setting up a company in Malta with the purpose of conducting recruitment services is to publicly announce a 21 days’ notice for opening the recruitment company. The notice must be displayed close by the headquarters of the future business according to the Employment Services Act.

The application must also be published in two newspapers. Once these requirements are met, the applicant can submit the proper documentation with the Department of Industrial and Employment Relations in Valletta.  The documents will be thoroughly verified and, if they meet the Employment Services Act demands, the Department will issue the certificate of incorporation of the Maltese recruitment agency. A registration certificate for a Maltese recruitment company is released within twelve working days. The certificate has one year validity.

Documents necessary for opening a recruitment company in Malta

The documents to be submitted with the Department of Industrial and Employment Relations in Malta in order to open a recruitment agency are:

-          an application form,

-          copies after the published ads,

-          a list with the directors of the Maltese recruitment agency,

-          notarized copies of the directors’ qualifications,

-          the CV or birth certificate and a clean criminal record of the recruitment company’s directors and representatives, if any,

-          a declaration that the location is suitable for conducting recruitment services,

-          the registration fee.

In order to be suitable, the office space of a Maltese recruitment agency must have a room for interviews, a waiting area and the building must allow access for people with disabilities.

If you want to set up a company, our Maltese agents in company registration can guide you through the registration process. You can also contact us for details about the Employment Agencies Regulations Act.
