A full-time job in Malta usually covers 40 hours per week. However, this might vary by sector and industry. Despite this, there are some rules that any employer must follow. For example, every worker is authorised to take a rest break if working six hours or more daily. Moreover, an employee is entitled to a minimum of 11 hours of rest per day and 24 hours of uninterrupted rest every week (1 day off minimum). When it comes to overtime (hours over the standard working period), the law states it must not surpass the maximum norm of 48 hours per week. Exceptions can be made if the employee voluntarily agrees to work for more extended periods. Full-time vacancies on our board cover:
