Can you have mini jobs alongside your main job?

Yes, you can have a main job subject to social insurance contributions and a mini job. However, you must make sure that you do not work more than 10 hours a day (maximum working time). You can also combine multiple mini jobs. But you can only earn a maximum of 538 Euros in total from the mini jobs. If you earn more, you have to pay tax on all the jobs.

Please note: if you need a work permit for your main job, you must also apply for a work permit for a mini job at the Foreigners' Registration Office.

You must always inform your employers about other mini jobs or second jobs! Your main employer is allowed to check whether it is possible for you to work in a mini job alongside your main job. He/she can also forbid you from doing so. For example, if your work puts too much strain on you physically or in terms of time.
