    Hey! I've just turned fifteen and would really like a job, mainly to get some work experience for later on but also because money, y'know. Anyway, I was wondering if there are any places which hire under 16s? I think WHSmiths does, but I've been looking and there haven't been any vacancies to apply for as of yet.

    Should I keep trying or just wait until I'm sixteen?

    Try in non chain cafes and restaurants. Chain stores such as Waterstones, Nandos etc won't hire under 16s. Alternatively you could ring and ask if you could do a two week work placement in a specific shop to gain experience before you're 16 however this wouldn't be paid. Another idea is volunteering in a charity shop to gain retail experience.

    I agree.
    You could try a paper round.
