  1. Hi,

    I will be moving to Malta in January 2022 and I would like to inquire about career opportunities at Caritas. I am looking to work as a trainee counselor, therapeutic facilitator, social worker, or researcher. I have master’s in psychological science with first-class honors from University College Dublin and I have worked in residential social care for individuals with intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, and autism spectrum disorder. I have also worked as a phone counselor for individuals suffering from anxiety and depression. I am happy to send on more information and a curriculum vitae if there are any opportunities which you think would be suitable.

    Thank you for your time.

    Kind regards,
    Eric Whelan
