Places that hire 16 year oldsWatch
- CV Helper
Even places with 18+ age restrictions (restaurants, DVD/game shops, etc.) will hire 16-year-olds, they just won't let them deal with the restricted stuff, as far as I know.
Or work in a kid's shop, like I do, and this won't be a problem.
Thanks, but would somewhere like comet hire me? Because I am going out tomorrow and trying in as many shops as possible.
At 16 I worked in Debenhams and Caffe Nero ;]
Retail is most likely to hire you, and I believe you can work in a bar, as long as you are observed whilst you are serving people. Along with that, you may be able to be waiting staff. I currently work in a Chinese Takeaway and started working there when I was 17 (my colleague started working at 16 though).
Remember to consider the fact that once you've had experience working in any environment, you're instantly more employable as you will have developed more skills and will have an additional reference - from someone you know well, not just your headteacher or someone you worked with for two weeks as work experience. McDonalds may not seem glamourous, but it's one of the largest companies in the world, therefore experience there would be a great start for you.
Whatever job you manage to get, I'd recommend only working 10 hours p/w if you plan on going to college alongside.
