Working while in Slovenia

Students can look for temporary job through a very well-developed network of student employment agencies. Temporary work of students and pupils doesn't require contracts or has other implications regular employment would have. Payment is per hour, per project or per effect in sales, but the company doesn't need to pay social or other fees for this type of employment. 

Foreign students and pupils can work through e-Študentski servis

e-Študentski servis is a student service, that has a special permission of the Ministry of Labour, Family and Social Affairs to assist in employment of foreign students or high school pupils in Slovenia during their studies.

There are two requirements. First is a valid residence permit and second is the status of student or pupil at a Slovenian higher education institution or high school in the current academic year. Many of foreign students and pupils find work through the student service. e-Študenski servis provides assistance also for challenges, that are not work related.

e-Študentski servis publishes opened positions at their web page www.studentski-servis.com  The list is refreshed daily. There is no difference between foreign and domestic applicants when offering jobs, neither do the companies who offer the jobs. Students and pupils have the opportunity to obtain both easy, physical work as well as professional and highly demanding jobs. Most of the times the employment obstacle is the language, but many foreign students and pupils attend Slovenian language courses.

Temporary work of students and pupils doesn't require contracts or has other implications regular employment would have. Payment is per hour, per project or per effect in sales, but the company doesn't need to pay social or other fees for this type of employment.

Foreign and domestic students and pupils can become members of e-Študentski Servis in their offices in e-ŠS Ljubljana, e-ŠS Bežigrad, e-ŠS Domžale, e-ŠS Kamnik, e-ŠS Litija, e-ŠS Zagorje, e-ŠS Sevnica, or at the web page www.studentski-servis.com 

You will need a personal document, bank account number, tax number and proof of student/pupil status in the current academic year.
