Take a break on the 8th of September!



Hello #Muovers job-seekers, how are you all?!

We know you are looking for a job in Malta, but at least you can take a break during this weekend since we celebrate 8th of September.

Victory Day is a public holiday celebrated in Malta, and recalls the end of three historical sieges made on the archipelago: the Great Siege of Malta by the Ottoman Empire ending in 1565; the Siege of Valletta by the French Blockade ending in 1800; and, the Siege of Malta during the Second World War by the Italian army ending in 1943.

On Victory Day, the Armed Forces of Malta parade on Republic Street, Valletta, reach the Co-Cathedral of St. John, where they salute the Prime Minister and the Maltese anthem is finally played. To mark the event, the President places a symbolic garland at the foot of the monument of the Great Siege to commemorate the victims of the World War.

During the afternoon, there will be a boat race, which is locally known as regatta, and takes place in the Grand Harbour, engaging the affiliated societies Cospicua, Vittoriosa, Birzebbuga, Marsa, Marsamxett, Kalkara and Isla.
This day is also famous for being Nativity of Mary’s day, and in fact feasts are celebrated in Xagħra, Naxxar, Senglea, and Mellieħa on the day.

Have a nice weekend and keep an eye on your favourite employment agency!
