    I think you can pretty much only do a paper round, as most companies would want you to be 16 for health & safety purposes. Although, I think Mcdonalds do hire 15 year olds, provided that their birthday is within 3 months of some school leaving date or other ex. if you're born in August.

    It's a tough one. W H Smith hire young, but there aren't many places at all that hire <16. Your best bet will be working in cafes, and doing pot-washing at the odd pub. The local places are your best bet, rather than chains.

    Actually, when I applied they did. Although, that was 2-3 years ago.
