    Hey guys,

    I am 15 and will soon be 16 at the beginning of next year. I want to become a commercial pilot for a career, but flight training is going on for £90,000 and I will need to start earning money now so that I can get a head start on the funding! Its not going to be easy but I have my mind set on being a pilot.

    Anyways, I am looking for a job which will pay quite a bit for 16 year olds, also I am not to bothered about what the particular job is, because I am basically willing to do anything to make a bit of money now,

    Thanks for any help in advance,

    Cleaning and refuelling buses at your local bus depot, they will actually pay quite a lot!

    Thanks!

    Supermarkets will hire 16 year olds I think. Also, cafes/restaurants should.

    Due to your age, you're probably not going to be paid that much, most employers that are willing to take on under 18s pay them minimum wage which is £3.68
