    Don't get hurt in the rush! I have been to Gozo and Malta several times when in export. I would be qualified for this role if 50 years younger. Except I fail in one important qualification...........not female!

      Is this legal to specify you’d prefer a female?

        Not in UK,probably OK in Malta. EU never takes any notice of the rules anyway, only when it suits them.

          Notice you need a driving licence...
          What side of the road do they drive on in Malta?
          My experience is ... whichever side is in the shade.
          (It was a joke - don't take that seriously)

          PS : My first name sounds female - so could apply?
          47 BC : Julius Cesar : Veni Vidi Vici : I came, I saw I conquered.
          2018 AD : Modern Man : I shopped, I clicked, I collected.
          How times change.

          If you find you have read something that has upset or offended you an anyway please unread it at once.

              I drove in Malta when working in Export. Left hand side as in UK I remember.

                Many years ago I visited Malta as part of a pharmaceutical group. IIRC the majority of pharmacists we met were female. Probably means the workplace is at present exclusively female.

                And yes, I recall the joke about dri=ving in the shade, but as Johnep says, on the left.
