At the beginning of 2023, the Student Center in Zagreb brought a new price list for student services. It is a document that contains hourly rates for all types of work that students normally perform.
Minimum - 4.38 euros
At the same time, it should be emphasized that the document has the force of a recommendation, and the only thing that employers must strictly adhere to is the minimum student hourly rate prescribed by the Ministry of Science and Education. That minimum student hourly wage in 2023 amounts to 4.38 euros net.
As in previous years, the Student Center recommends a minimum hourly wage for some administrative jobs. This includes, for example, work in photocopiers, but also the work of student teachers in schools, work on mail delivery, work on computer data entry or secretarial work. A minimum of 4.38 euros per hour is also recommended for students who work as cleaners in cinemas or stores, for those who work in a paper, textile or food factory, on declaring goods, as well as for the jobs of ushers, for a number of jobs in theaters and for working at the reception, performing the work of a waiter or server.
For developers, the recommendation is 8.97 euros per hour
A slightly higher hourly rate, between five and six euros, is recommended for cleaning boiler rooms or warehouses, working on buildings (for example, as an aid to bricklayers), for work in the electronics, automotive and metal industries. SC recommends an hourly rate of EUR 5.23 for loading and unloading goods, such as loading or unloading furniture, ceramic tiles, books from archives, etc.
The most recommended hourly rates are those above seven euros. In particular, SC Zagreb recommends an hourly wage of 7.47 euros for snow removal, 7.97 euros for student translators and foreign correspondents, and the highest hourly wage of 8.97 euros is recommended for students engaged in programming or creating websites.
