    You could always go self-employed.

    are their any jobs or companies which pay higher than the minimum wages for 16 year olds?
    you best ways are
    waitressing somewhere where tipping is likely (look for quality indicators i.e. menu prices of £20 plus, top shelve liquor on display and if you can customer's jewellery before you apply)
    supermarkets (notably Waitrose as you get a shareholder bonus)
    anywhere with commission (electronics/tech stores are the main ones )
    big budget places (new car showrooms, quality jewellery stores and quality antique dealers for example)

    You can become your own boss, by starting up a business
    this is a very viable option as long as you have the backing finances to do it, OP
    I mean 5 years I ago I was working for £3,000 a year as sous chef
    now I run my own business in the luxury goods resale sector, I make at least that every week

    Most jobs pay quite well for a 16 year old, considering you're a 16 year old. You've got no other income so any income in comparison is a lot :O

    I work at Sports Direct (don't judge) on £4.07, it's 20% above minimum wage and there's loads of commission to be made, so it's not a bad earner.

    Plus they like to employ young people because it's cheaper for them, so it's not too bad

    As mentioned above, plenty of companies dont discrimunate on age for min wage. Larger organisations.

    Biggest large employer here appears to be Boots at £8.80.
