Which European Country have the highest number of days off work?

When searching for Jobs in Europe you need to consider a lot of factors when planning for that career abroad. You need to consider where you want your career to go obviously, but also where in the world do you want to have your career? From our experience we notice candidates will pick location over career and vice versa which in the long term can be a bad idea. The smart job seekers weigh up both options and decide on job and location that will provide an ideal life/work balance.

This can be tricky because work/life balance is not just about the job, but everything around it. For Job hunters wanting that career abroad they have a lot of options in terms of where to go. Today Bilingual speakers are wanted in every major European city, so job seekers need to choose based on other factors like cost of living, weather, culture and even food. Now if you're not a foodie then maybe this can be the deciding factor.

We can all agree we all love a day off, especially when our holiday days are not being used up. We put a list together of the top European countries that offer the most days off. In the graph below we have put together a breakdown of allowed holiday days and public holidays given in that country. (And based on the results we will be moving to Malta tomorrow!)
