How to get 10 days off for the Coronation

The coronation of King Charles III on Saturday, 6 May 2023, comes with an extra bank holiday across the UK on Monday, 8 May, which means that Brits can enjoy more time in the sun.

Following recent research showing that 61% of Brits plan to go on holiday abroad this year, up from 50% who were asked the same question last year, Frank Recruitment Group has figured out how Brits can double their time off this May.

This hack applies to UK workers entitled to bank holidays as part of their employment contract and normally work Monday through Friday.

To have a 10-day getaway for the upcoming May bank holiday, schedule the days leading up to the King's coronation. With the early May bank holiday on 1 May and King Charles III’s coronation holiday on 8 May, workers in the UK can take off the Tuesday to Friday following both public holidays to secure a 10-day time off work by using only four days of annual leave.

Alternatively, if the dates suit better, they can book off the remainder of the week after the coronation and have nine days instead. They can even book all the time off and have 16 days away from their desk to spend however they please.
