    Recently i gained my National Insurance Number (NI), and i have no idea what i do with it, what it allows me to do, and basically anything that revolves around the numbers :confused:

    I am hoping to get a Summer job, which i also need DIRE help with as it will be my first job, and i have no idea what it implies.

    For example:
    1) When getting a Summer job do i go through the usual, interviews and training, or is it different? do i need a CV?
    2) What summer jobs CAN i get with my NI?
    3) When saying 'Summer Job', how long will i be working for? (weeks, hours, etc)

    As you can see, i am in need of help Please, explain to me the nature of all things job wise....PLEASE!

    I bow before your infinite wisdom, oh wise knowledge holders.

    Once you're 16 practically all jobs require your NI number. And you'll be working for approx 6 weeks with negotiable hours. And you might need interviews and you will need a CV if they choose to take your application further. You prob wont get much training as this is time consuming and training for a job which you'll keep for the summer only is pointless.

    Your NI number is basically just like your ID number with the Inland Revenue, the organisation that collects taxes. It's not like some kind of passport to a job - it's just that when you get a job, employers will need your NI number so they can arrange with the Inland Revenue for your tax payments.

    There isn't a particular kind of job labelled a "summer job". It's just a job that you quit at the end of the summer.
