When do they start being advertised? Any recommendations for good places to work? I am 16.
Most stores start advertising Christmas Temp roles in September, although I know Debenhams have already started adverting them already.
I know Boots, Next, McDonalds and all major supermarkets take on 16 year olds.
I've seen Boots and Debenhams so far, but you have to be pretty fast. I know all the vacancies at boots in my area were gone by October last year, and there was quite a lot of them. I also think some of the Christmas temp jobs are full time from the start of December, so they won't want sixteen year olds - but it's worth looking. :-)
October is the month that retail store start hiring for christmas jobs, I recommend handing out your CV (as well as checking online) to your local stores that you want to work in, in mid-september to early october. All the interview happen in october and it's basically first come first serve so you have to be pretty quick.
