County council palces pay well because they have to pay the min wage for c/c. I work at a library 9-4 on saturdays, am 17 and get £5.33 an hour. If I do overtime during they week I get time & a half on saturday.

Currys-the electronics store, my friend works there and he is on £5.50-£6.00 an hour (cant remember exactly) hes 17 so its a great wage for his age.

never work in sainsburys is my advice lol, guess where i work.

cinemas can be buggers too, they might need you to work late nights, ie after midnight/early hours which arent good.

true true. really its down to what type of work you want. my friend worked at a cinema for a while. they asked her to work untill two in the morning on a sat nite/sun morn. she told them to bugger off quite rightly

I think most jobs require u to be over 16, but there are some jobs in restaurants (washing up mainly) where u can work under 16. But i think it's probably only washing up, nothing any good...and they could pay you anything they wanted, ie £2 an hour or something pathetic.

Most companies have a policy of not employing under 16s which is really harsh on post GCSE people with summer birthdays (even harsher for school leavers!) This isnt the case for you though I guess, are you just going into year 11 and one of the "old" ones in the year? Your best bet is probably to aim for a weekend job after you get your 16th birthday. Sainsbury's and BHS do actually employ under 16s, and sometimes little cafes and hairdressers and so on do too.

Minimum wage doesnt apply to anyone under 18

There is a band for 18-21 and another band for 21+

You need a work permit from your school if you want a job under 16 years old.

This is what I did.

I made a CV and printed off about 10 copies then I went into my local town and went from shop to shop asking "Are you looking for part-time staff?"
hi there my name is maria, i really want a job as a hairdresser but im only 14 so what shall i do.
If they said No not right now or No but maybe at Christmas, I left a CV.
If they said No then they didn't get a CV.
I didn't, however, get a single yes and handed out all of my copies.

I found a job at my local cinema (well, I have to take 2 buses to get there) and applied and I'm still waiting.

What are you doing for the summer hols? I know you'll probably think "Oh my god she's mad" but have you thought about working in a charity shop like Oxfam. You don't get paid but you gain experience which employers will make snap you up.

Also, if you get offer a job with £3.00+ per hour, bite their hand off and accept. As you are under 18, you are reguarded as "cheap labour" because their is no set min. wage.

EDIT - All this talk about Oxford must be going to my head seeing that there is no such charity shop as Oxford! Oxfam yes, Oxford no.

Do not under any circumstance work at fast food restaurants as they always try to get you to work dodgy hours and they don't actually pay u what they said they would. Cos u hav to take breaks and stuff and they take htat off. B careful if you apply to like sainsbury's my m8 got told he was overqualified
