    I want to start working , weekends only. Maybe Friday evenings too.
    I'll be on holiday for two weeks later on in the year aswell.
    How do I apply for jobs ? Should I just bring my cv into shops & explain my situation ?
    I can apply for jobs in like h&m and that right ? Can I apply for things like sainsburys as well or ?
    I live in south London - anyone know of any jobs /places I could apply to // Amy experiences you guys can share ?
    THANK YOU

    Yes, you can apply to these areas but it would be difficult to get a job with no/little retail experience. I recommend using the site Indeed.co.uk to look at online applications as nowadays shops will not be interested in taking in your CV.. Most applications are done online. Some independent shops/restaurants will take in CVs, however, big retailers likes H&M, Next etc. won't as they do theirs online.
    I'm trying to find a job too for summer, for months and I'm 17. Tbh, getting a job nowadays is based on luck or if you know someone who works in retail and can easily get you a job then you're pretty much sorted. But otherwise, its tough especially when you have little experience..

    Anyway, good luck! Hopefully, we'll find jobs soon!

    Really? That's great, I thought phone companies didn't hire under 18's due to customer confidentiality reasons e.g. signing contracts etc?
