    Not big companies- maybe a small local shop or cafe.
    You'd have to get a child work permit from your school though.

    Once you are 15, go around some local shops and cafes. They may not have work for you know but cafes in particular will probably have summer work
    (Also, you dont need a child work permit, despite what the other poster said)

    You do need a permit:'If you want to employ a child you may need to obtain a work permit for that child from the local authority where your business is based.A child includes any person who has not yet reached compulsory school leaving age.'

    Depends on the employer- some provide it, and sometimes the kid has to get it. I had to get my permit from the council and get it signed by school and the employer.
