If you work for 5 days a week then a week’s paid leave is 5 days

If you work for 2 days a week then a week’s paid leave is 2 days


holidays
In some cases an employer may tell you when you can take some of that leave

E.g. some companies close at Christmas so people have to take leave


calender
In some cases your employer may include Bank Holidays in your 4 weeks paid leave.

Other companies will give you 4 weeks as well as the Bank Holidays


If you apply for a job you need to be clear about how much paid leave you will be given and when you can take it
