    Hi,
    I'm currently 15 (16 in June) and I wanted to get like a saturday/part time job to have some spare cash, the problem is I don't know how to ask for a job and what should it look like.

    For most places you need to be 16, My birthday is in august, so waiting was really annoying. The only option you really have is a paper round

    As above paper round - babysitting (if you like kids?)

    I did babysitting when I was 15. Really great. Never really had any difficulties with the kids because I think they act up less when you're a stranger. Plus people tend to be pretty generous with the pay

    Definitely babysitting - google advice on how to make flyers, ask friends of parents, relatives or neighbours. Best way and easy all things considered - if you've got an 8 year old who's in bed for four/five hours in the evening, you can get some revision done or watch telly and the parents will likely give you £15/20 for doing so.
