UK Maximum Working Hours? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I've been talking to some people about a job as a shooting instructor, but it would appear I would be working 94 hours per week (97.5 including travel).

    Is there a maximum allowed working hours per week in the UK?

    (It's 8am - 10pm Monday-Saturday and 10am - 8pm Sundays, approx 15 mins travel each way)

    The employer would have to get you to opt out of the working time directive first.

    There isn't maximum working hours as such but there are minimum breaks, meaning you are entitled to days off and also breaks between working days:
