    I'm 15 years old and I want to work, however I do not know where to start. I have searched online and still cannot find what I am looking for. Can anyone give me advice on this? I need to know where a 15 year old can work in the UK and what I require for that particular job.

    Getting a job at 15 is pretty difficult, have you looked into a paper round ?

    Yeah, besides paper work or working at a family shop, at 16 it would be seen as prestigious to be applying or a job, I've been there. Wait till your 16 maybe, it might put a bit of ease in looking. Just live of your parents money for now

    Also, wait till you get your national insurance number too. It will come in handy.

    Most employers will only take on over 16s due to supervision reasons e.g if you work now someone on site would have to have a DBS certificate.
