How hours are advertised

    Recommended Posts

    Looking at job adverts, someone explain to me what it means when jobs have 0.8 hours etc? I'm guessing on a standard week (40 hours?) 0.8 would mean 80% hence 32 hours or am I barking up the wrong tree entirely?

    You're spot on thewhitehouse. It would generally mean a 4 day week, but could also be 32 hours spread over 5 days.

     

    Cheers, Kazza

    Thanks Kazza! So a standard full time week would always be classed as 40 hours?

    No, I work for Flinders University and standard hours are 36 hrs 45 mins. I work 0.9 over 5 days.

    I am 0.8, for me its 8 days over a fortnight, 34hrs per week. Or just to confuse things if i work nights i may work an extra 2 hrs per night on top of the 34 of which i get paid for.

    A sort of equation then with variations! Seen a few jobs advertised as x hours per fortnight - bizarre to my UK mind but I'll adapt :)

    A lot of people over here get paid fortnightly, hence the hours per fortnight being quoted. I work in an office environment and my full time hours have been either 38 or 40 hours a week.
