    I found these two job offerings at my uni as an administrative assistant. The job states that it is 0.6 FTE, permanent, part-time contract.

    First of all, what would 0.6 FTE mean? I know it stands for full-time equivalent, however, I would like to find out how many hours per day/week that would be (one of the offerings says I would work 3 days per week).


    Also, since it was posted under student jobs, I was wondering how easy it is to schedule your studies around a permanent contract, are employers OK with you taking winter/easter breaks? (I am from another country and would like to come back home during the breaks and take a few weeks off)

    Thanks!

    .6 out of 1, 60% or 3 days out of 5 (though it might not be 3 full days)

    You will probably be entitled to .6 of 28 days per week, but you'd need to ask what the full time leave entitlement was, and you'd get .6 of that.

    If it's a uni job, they probably will be tolerant of taking that leave during the uni holidays (unless its admissions admin which works in the holidays for example) . but if it was a high street employer, ie not uni related, you'd have to go in the mix with everyone else for leave applications, they wouldn't be sympathetic.
