    I worked on a farm at 14. Mainly worked with the horses but if you dont like horses there are plenty of other thing for you to do on a farm.
    Farm owners are normally always ready to take on a helping hand!
    Good luck!

    As long as you can get permission from your school, you can work upto 4 hours a week doing most things. I worked in a shop in town on a saturday pm.

    most shops have a over-6 policy because they require national insurance number and they won't let under 16 work on tils.

    best bet for an under 16 year old is working in a restauarnt/cafe either waiting or kitchen porting etc.

    Restaurants require NI numbers too!!!

    You can apply for a number that will let you work! I can't remeber the ins and outs of it as I was 14, er 14 years ago (O...M...G...!)

    Stockbrokers or barristers are usually cafe employees.

    I've been working in a library for £6/hr since the age of 14. They issue you with a temporary national insurance number so it's not really a problem. I would suggest trying as many shops/businesses in the area as you can. Most places are reluctant to employ under 16s or even under 19s but if you catch them when they're desperate for staff, like I did, you might be lucky.

    don't expect to get work in any restaurants or cafes as in most of them you have to be over 18, no exceptions. Perhaps if you were looking at a small village family run place then it would be different, but the law is the law and if anywhere has even a drop of acohol and there are under 18 either working or on the premises they will be stripped of their license. Sorry, but I have worked in restaurants for 5 years and I have never seen anyone under the age of 16 working in them.
