Hi I'm 15 years old and live in the uk and I'm just wondering if anyone else got a job at a similar age cos most jobs are 16 only and it's really annoying cos my birthdays not til July! Any help would be appreciated, cheers. Also when is everyone doing GCSEs this year gonna start revising?

I turned 16 in July and found it incredibly tough to find a job. The big companies simply won't take you due to the fact you haven't received your GCSE results and haven't got any work experience. They usually have a lot of applicants and will obviously choose the more experienced candidates. I got a job with a local cafe. I saw a sign which said they were looking for job applicants, asked the boss if I could work there and I worked an 8 hour shift that day. Your best bet is a local business because it's a lot less formal and there won't be as many applicants. Good luck.
