Types of Flexible Working

Jobs for Mums Malta is available to any employer - private, state or otherwise - as long as the job opportunities offered are:

  • Flexible full-time jobs - these may include flexible hours and / or be flexible in terms of office-based or home-based.
  • Reduced hours jobs - these offer more than 20 but less than 40 hours per week, for which NI is payable and employee benefits are same as full time, pro rata.
  • Part-time jobs - these consist of less than 40 hours per week without social security contributions.
  • Term-time jobs - this is temporary work for a specific term, such as when filling in for a person on maternity leave or extended sick leave. It also refers to work during school term time only.
  • Short term roles - these are temporary opportunities ranging from few days to few months, and may be for definite or indefinite periods.
  • Project based jobs - these are temporary job opportunities based on executing tasks for the duration of a particular project only.
  • Work-from-home jobs - this involves work being carried out remotely by the use of technology, or task-based work that is independent of location, such as assembling toys.
  • Freelance jobs - this means work that is available for freelancers who work independently rather than as employees, and who can perform the assigned tasks on behalf of an employer who, in this case, is a client.
