Working hours
Working hours are generally 6 to 8 hours per day from Monday to Friday. For some jobs, however, flexibility is necessary. It may be that sometimes you have to work weekends and have a day off during the week.

Most summer jobs include free accommodation and meals. Sometimes you even get a little pocket money.

You can determine the duration and the time of your stay abroad yourself. Most jobs usually have a minimum duration of 2 months. Farmstays or jobs in nature parks can also be done for a few weeks only.
