    Try supermarket work. People your age get it all the time. You don't neccessrily need prior experience, in fact often you don't at all.
    It's what I did when I were your age. I worked for Waitfrose for a year and a half.
    Will do. I don't actually need a job for the money (or indeed experience, as I'll be getting placements in my field as part of my sponsored degree), I just want it for the personal experience and to help my communication.

    Also, do you know anything about tax in my post above?

    Indeed TF but this is his first job.
    Ah is it now, well in that case keep it to one page... not that you'll be able to do more than one page anyway.

    Include all GCSEs above 'D' although ideally if you have enough at 'C' then do that and nothing below D it will look bad although Maths and English must be 'C' otherwise you won't be considered for a lot of jobs.

    Also references cannot be family and have a short cover of what you are doing currently and what you want to do at the top.

    Also, for next year I already have a job (sponsored degree technically counts as employment, so I am employed by the company) and I get £5800 a year. If I were to get a part time job, how much could I earn a year without paying tax?

    I never suggested you were doing it for the money. When I was 17 I just wanted a job although the money was certainly a bonus.
    I also wanted to do it for experience and to generally meet people. To some extent it worked.


    As for tax, well you won't pay tax unless your combined annual salary is more than something like four or five thousand per year.

    I believe you mean you wonder if a vegan would wear a coat.
    A veggie too; they don't eat on the premise that an animal was killed. An animal was killed to make the buttons on the coat vegans don't eat anything from an animal irrespective of whether they were killed I believe.

    Can't bloody stand either of them unless its for medical reasons

    Please it isn't the only good one... there are loads more by black singers it appears that if you are black and can sing in France then seriously the dance/pop songs that come from those guys are just immense :cool:
    Its quite a catchy song; not too dissimilar from the Eurovision entry a year back from France but apart from that..... :rolleyes:

    Up the the threshold... £6k.

    Edit: Although it may be £7k now HMRC it.

    I have no GCSE's. I believe I've said before, and my flag shows, that I'm from Scotland. I know you'd get pissed off if I said the same to you! But yeah, I'll put my standard grades (which are all good anyway).

    I will pay tax - I get paid next year for going to college (£5800) so I probably would need to pay tax should I get another job.

    Sucks to be you.

    I know it's ridiculous - whatever moderator gave you an alert is overly sensitive...
