    Hey, I was wondering if anyone knew of any places which employed people aged 14 in East Sussex. I know that 14 year olds can work in restaurants and shops. If anyone knew of anything it would be a huge help!

    Most shops and restaurants won't hire you until you're over 16 due to the working laws. By Law you're not allowed to work many hours which puts employers off.

    WHSmith say on their website they hire from 13 but I haven't ever known anyone to be 13 and get a job there. They're all over 16.

    The only job I can really think you could try for is a paper round due to the fact of you not having a national insurance number (Which you kinda need)

    You could try family run businesses or cafes?? Or try doing chores round the house for extra money

    Keep in mind as well the Current minimum wage for 16-17s is £3.78 an hour.. Being 14 your employer has every right to pay you less than that if they wish (Minimum wage doesnt apply until you're 16)

    Hardly any places will take on under 16's.
    You can do a paper round from 13. And some restaurants take on waitresses from age 13/14. Thats about it really.

    My 14 yr old does a paper round. But he has a friend that works in a fish and chip shop and she isn’t getting a great wage, £4 a night. Also there is aheakth and safety risk working in kitchens. My son gets £17 a week but only works 1/2 hour a day.
    Just check out anything they offer and always on paper for final contract.

    Look for little cafes in your town. The ones that are NOT massive chains (e.g Costa, Greggs) will likely be more flexible on ages you can work etc.

    Genuine advice? Live your teenage years not worrying about work and let people who need the work more to get jobs. That sounds harsh but people in their 18+ years need work more than someone under the age of 16.

    If you do want experience though, I'd suggest volunteering for community/school work. This will improve your chances for future employment.
