Over 250,000 Belgians have a second job

In 2023, approximately 260,000 people or 5.2 percent of the working population in Belgium have a second job. This is an increase from 3.8 percent in 2018. A quarter of wage earners are working part-time, with highly educated individuals and those aged 25 to 49 being more likely to have a second job.

Interestingly, there was once a gap between men and women with multiple jobs, but that has now been closed. Nearly six in ten additional jobs are performed as self-employed individuals, with popular sectors including human health, education, and wholesale and retail trade.

Furthermore, 26.0 percent of salaried employees in Belgium work part-time, with women more likely to do so than men. Women often reduce their working hours to care for children or others, while men cite personal reasons for working part-time. The most popular part-time regime for both genders is working four-fifths.
