Holidays for a researcher at university in Finland

Post by dbterminator » Sun Jun 02, 2019 4:10 pm

Hi All,

Could anyone advise on the number of days per year holiday, for a researcher at university?

I am struggling to find one number! - I am amazed on why this is so complicated (In england, you are simply given a number of days per year). I am told by my employer that I need to work 1624 hours per year, and the rest is for me left as holidays...But with this calculation I am getting about 8 weeks of holidays. Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Saif

It's a simple as you have been told. The contract does allow for plenty of holidays.
