Working hours

You and your manager agree on how many hours you will work. The standard working hours for a full-time appointment are 38 hours per week.

More or fewer working hours

You may choose to work more or fewer hours by applying the flexible working hours option. For example, when you simply can't work full-time. Or when you have an annual agreement as academic staff. 

Do you have health problems and is it therefore for you only possible to work at certain hours? Discuss it with your manager. You always reach an agreement together on when you start and finish work.

Break during working hours

If you work for at least 5.5 hours per day, you have a compulsory half-hour lunch break.
