    Your age will limit you from many roles unfortunately. Do any of your friends work, if so, perhaps they could recommend you?

    I'm afraid you won't find anything advertised that will take on a 14/15 year old. The rules on employing you are far too limiting to make it a serious option. You will have to work in the informal market, doing babysitting, gardening, odd jobs, you might possibly get a newspaper round, but it will have to be word of mouth of postcards in the shop window/noticeboard.

    Most places wont take people on until they are 16.
    Your best bet is a paper round.

    Not to many employers, as they can pay lower wages.

    True - but the amount of time you can work (legally) is less and for me whenever I am in college is the time that the jobs require
