Construction Work?

Postby kaltik » Wed 20 Nov 2013 03:50 GMT

I am a construction manager but also a time served joiner from the UK, Scotland. Currently in China working....it's a long story but will be returning back to Europe in March with my partner.

Is there a market for a construction manager or trade work in joinery or plastering etc or is this only Maltese locals that do this work as I cant speak Maltese. Also my wife is Chinese, are there Chinese restaurants she could work in? She also speaks English very well. Thanks in advance people.

I guess that your best option would be to become self-employed and then tout your services around. When people get to know you and if you are reliable and turn up for work then I don't think you will have too much of a problem. There are a few Chinese restaurants around - take a look in the Mellieha area - we also have a Scottish contingent here too :)

I'd guess there are 50 plus Chinese restaurants in Malta (partly a legacy of Mintoff's close links with China in the 70s) - Chinese make up one of the biggest expat communities in Malta.
