From extravagant gala dinners on the waters edge, to high adrenaline activities, we tailor our clients ideas into a memorable experience on our beautiful island. Our expertise has allowed us to work with high profile incentive houses, congress organizers, pharmaceutical, telecommunications and manufacturing multinationals.
Operations Executive
Main Role:
The Operations Executive has a role of key importance as a team member of Colours of Malta. The main duties consist in direct contact with the client and with our main suppliers. The objective is direct communication with both suppliers and clients and to guarantee the best services and prices available to complete the event according to the client’s specifications.
Responsibilities:
Your main responsibility is to receive and create outstanding proposals for group requests interested in hosting their event in Malta. This is where your sales skills must shine, as you’ll need to sell and upsell all the services available. Services include but are not limited to hotel bookings, airport transfers, transportation, restaurants, entertainment and activities. This is done through suppliers, many of which we have a long-standing relationship with.
Operations duties and responsibilities:
The event operations commence once the group arrives in Malta. A group may range from about 10 people to larger groups of a few hundreds. The role involves assisting the client when they are on site and to guarantee that all services are provided to the group as specified in the approved proposal. The main responsibilities are to communicate with the suppliers involved in that group, to try to achieve maximum efficiency. Quick, smart and effective decision-making skills are often required so as to always provide the best solutions to the client when things don’t go as planned or when problems arise. During the organisation and actual operation of the event, there will be various Colours of Malta team members to liaise and coordinate with so as to ensure a smooth and successful event outcome.
Requirements:
Fluent in English and Italian – any other languages are considered an asset.
Proficient in microsoft power point, excel etc.
Have you got what it takes? If so, we’d love to hear from you.

Malta Marriott recognised for ‘excellence in service delivery’ by Marriott International

Malta Marriott Hotel & Spa has been recognised by parent company Marriott International for its customer service delivery through a distinction for its Intent to Recommend score for July 2022.

Marriott International was full of praise towards the Malta-based hotel for the achievement, a sign of a “truly outstanding performance”.  It also thanked Malta Marriott for the service it provides to customers, with a priority on making them feel “safe, secure, and welcomed”.

“Lasting memories are created through great customer service, and we have a team that cares about that as much as you do,” Malta Marriott said.

“We are proud of our associates for their dedication to delivering hospitality and creating experiences that will last a lifetime,” the hotel added.

The hotel launched in January 2020 after an investment of €30 million for extensive refurbishment, and he has since become known for the “joyful experience” it offers its guests every time they visit.

Similar to other hotels, Malta Marriott was forced to halt its operations during the COVID-19 pandemic due to lockdown restrictions just a few months after its launch, before it reopened at the start of September of that same year.

All restrictions lifted on weddings and events as of 2nd May

The Deputy Prime Minister Chris Fearne has announced that all restrictions on weddings and events will be lifted from 2nd May. That means that person limits, vaccine requirements and mask-wearing will no longer be mandatory at weddings and events. Malta will also remove obligations for a passenger locator form for anyone arriving into the country from 2nd May.

Fearne made the announcement along with several changes to mask-wearing rules, quarantine, and the opening of English Language Schools. He said he expected all measures to be lifted soon, but did not give a date.

The PLF has been controversial, given the backlog and queues it creates at the Malta International Airport. PLFs will be needed for the red and dark red zones only.

The only people who will need to remain in isolation and quarantine are positive cases. The quarantine period will be seven days. This will apply to both vaccinated and unvaccinated. Primary contacts will no longer need to quarantine. People who live in the same household as a positive case will not be obliged to quarantine, but it is recommended if they are showing symptoms.

When it comes to masks, they will no longer be obligatory except in hospitals, clinics, elderly homes and flights. However, it is recommended that masks be used on public transport and in closed spaces.

Relaxing of COVID-19 rules in Malta

From Monday 11th April, the Covid-19 requirements upon entering Malta, are as follows:

A negative PCR test or rapid test valid to enter into Malta – According to the notice both the Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) and the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test will be accepted, although the latter can be done earlier. For RATs, the test has to be performed “not more than 24 hours prior to arrival in Malta”. Those opting for the PCR test, which in some countries is pricier and the result takes longer to come out, can do the test up to 72 hours before arriving in Malta. Guidelines published by the public health authorities explaining the legal notice state that the RAT tests must be ones that are included on a special list by the European Council. The result must also be in English, the authorities note. If unavailable in English, an English translation certified by the laboratory or a medical doctor is to be presented. RAT tests are not accepted unless on the EU digital COVID certificate format. Results from self-testing are not accepted. The passenger locator form, used for contact tracing purposes, will still be needed.

A recovery certificate permits entry to Malta – According to the legal notice, a certificate of recovery is accepted for 180 days after a person first tested positive for COVID-19.

Quarantine free – Individuals travelling from Red Countries who have recovered from COVID-19 within the past 180 days, or those who can present a negative PCR test (no older than 72 hours), will be allowed to enter the country quarantine-free.

Let's go that extra mile!
