average salary and cost of living in malta

According to the online stats 17,000 euros

For a dental assistant qualified? I work in a private practice or would I be better to work in the hospitals?

Thats the average Maltese salary....salaries are much lower than the UK ! I have a Maltese friend who is a teacher in a Private school with 20 years experience, her take home pay is 1,500 per month, if that gives you any indication. Maybe check this link too

In view of the fact that you are a Non-EU citizen, please see the following:

Dear Fionn thanks for your reply i forgot to say im eu citizen btw

Difficult to tell if you'll get promoted but it will depend on i) how you perform in your first position, ii) your previous work experience, iii) your skills & qualifications.

Thanks for your reply lambada

HSBC is paying 16300 btw with health insurance, life insurance and a gym. So it's not amazing pay. I'm looking for something to come up in the betting industry as I saw a similar job there for 25,000....though it was in Portuguese (and I do speak Portuguese but they probably wouldn't take a Brit for Portuguese).

Hi everyone,

There is nothing such as a "typical" salary for a specific position.
It's always a question of the individual company and mainly based on the responsibilities, skills and qualifications necessary for this position - not your personal qualifications !

General Customer Service (telephone, email, chat) starts at 14k and goes up to 25k (with night shifts). For the same duties you can earn much more with certain languages. Salary as Quality Manager ranges from 25k up to 90k. Engineers with experience can get 20k or 50k per year. IT professionals may find 35k on their hand or much more or less depending on the skills requirements and working conditions (stress levels  :P ).

Salary is not based on what you can offer, it's what the position requires.
If you think you can do more, find another job ... provided there's a necessity for your qualifications ...

Hello!

I am a currently in my final university year and have been offered a web developer position which pays (about) 30k Euro a year after takes. I would like to ask you if I can manage life expenses (rent, utilities, groceries, etc) and still be able to save up a decent amount. I will be living on my own and I don't have a problem sharing the apartment with someone. Won't really be going out much and, as I've seen in some posts, shopping at Lidl won't be a problem, since they are well known in my country as well (Romania).

Also, how fair is the salary offer considering that I have almost 3 years of experience and am quite good in what I do.  :)

Best regards,
Alex

Hi Alex,

Just to make something clear. Did they offer you 30K gross or 30K NET? Usually when they are making an offer here in Malta it's always gross.

For the sake of the conversation let's say it is 30K per year NET (after taxes),that would give you 2,500 per month for you to spend.

Renting alone is definetely more expensive and the region of 600euros a month (Depending where are you going to stay), now if you would like to share estimate something at around 350-400 including the bills. Besides that, there are no other big expenses here like health care, rental taxation and other.

So, I would say you can pretty much have a very decent life here in Malta and also you will be able to save.

Now, you mentioned that you are on your final year of the University but you already have 3 years of  commercial experience working as a developer? In that case the offer is quite reasonable and within what the market offers. If it's 30K NET then its more on the high end.

I am not sure if I answered your questions, but if you need anything else, feel free.

Cheers,

ALso depends on the area you wish to live and work, it varies in terms of rent and living costs very much across the island

@DudeInNL @Michelle

Hello and thank you for your responses. :)

Yes, I am talking about net salary and that's going to be around 2.1k - 2.7k (it'll be decided after the interview) so I just went ahead and said 2.5k to have a round amount, I had thought about spending 1k a month for life expenses, but as I've said, there won't be a problem living with someone else if I can find them. :P

I don't know the exact location where the company is yet, so I can't say an area in which I'd like to rent a room. All I can say is that I'd like to get there in under 30-45 minutes. :D

The position is of junior developer, but since this year's winter I'll already have the 3 years required for the middle position, I assume there might be raise somewhere next year or so, but anyway, from your response I can say I won't be having a problem even as it is.

Thank you again for your time.

Cheers,
Alex

"have been offered a web developer position " ... "around 2.1k - 2.7k (it'll be decided after the interview)"

Are you counting your chickens before they hatch?

Hi Alex,

In that case, if they are offering 30K NET for a junior position it is way above the average for a web developer. Usually for a junior level (1-2yrs) developers looking at anything between 23K-28K and for middle level 3-5 years they are looking at 30K-35K always GROSS. So, I would say that the offer is pretty much on the high end.

Also, yes, there is an annual salary review.

Which technologies are you experienced with?

Also, since you want to live somewhere where it doesn't take you more than 40 minutes to go to work you will have many options to find a place to stay.

So, to understand something. Did they make you an offer, or are you still in the interview stages?

Cheers,

@DudeInNL

Hello!

I had 2 interviews and they seemed pretty pleased with me. However,  since at that time, there were still about 5 months until graduation, we decided it was best to wait a couple of months and contact them again when I'm closer to the said date, to fix other details and such. So I will most likely have another interview mid-May or somewhere around that time.

In other words, I haven't signed anything, but the chances are pretty high in my opinion, so I just wanted to go ahead and check how life would work out if I were to be accepted in the end. :)

As for web development technologies, regarding frontend, I have great experience with the AngularJS framework and also some decent experience with Angular 2 (this one I'm currently learning for future use), and ,regarding backend, I have worked with Laravel (PHP), Pyramid (Python) and some NodeJS (only a little for personal projects). I've also worked with packet managers such as npm and bower, task runners such as Grunt, Gulp and Webpack (this I'm currently using) and I'm well accustomed to how Git works.

Aside of those, I've done some projects in Android (my license project being an Android app), Windows Phone, can handle, to some extent, Java, Go (had to do a small application for distributed systems) and C# (made a few games in Unity, only one is still published in the Play Store).

Best regards,
Alex

@volcane

Hi. :) Maybe that's what it is, but it's better to be prepared ahead of time than blindly do stuff and regret it later. :P That's my opinion at least. :)

So, did they offer you?
