The official working hours in the Abu Dhabi banking sector are eight hours per day or 48 hours a week and Friday and Saturday are off. But for some banks, Friday is the only day off and Thursday is a half working day.
For some departments like the ‘operations’ which need to be running 24/7, a shift system is practiced, therefore off days are not fixed but rather depend on the shifting process (more specifically the night shift after which 2 days off are given).
