Working hours

The normal working hours under the Collective Agreement for the Public Service of the Federation (TVöD Bund) is currently 39 hours per week for full-time employees.

The AWI provides flexible working hours to its public employees. What this means for you:

  • While there is a core time, you can choose when you start and end your work, taking this variable into account.
  • To a certain extent, you can balance your schedule with hours worked in advance or subsequently. This provides you with the possibility, in consultation with your supervisor, of working flexitime and, thus, reducing overtime.

The working hours on expeditions are not covered with the usual working time arrangements. For this purpose, there is a separate service agreement that covers both the working hours as well as the time off following expeditions.

If you are coming to us as a student assistant or intern, your working hours are not subject to the TVöD and are therefore subject to other rules. Please contact the Human Resources Department about any relevant questions.
