I'm trying to find a part-time jobWatch
Thanks so much
I'm starting year 13 in a few weeks and need a flexible job that pays well - can pay for my monthly phone bill, can pay for driving lessons etc. that I can work alongside studying 3 A2 subjects and an EPQ. Does anyone know what stores I can hand my CV into? Or a good place I should apply to?
Thanks so much
It's the good ol you need experience to get a job but a job to get experience catch 22 at work.
If you can get waitrose or John Lewis they pay well but i highly doubt a part time job will pay you enough to save up for a car and a mobile phone contract. Minimum wage for 16/17 year olds is only £4.05 an hour so for a car alone you'd be saving for ages (i should know because I'm currently trying and that's putting every penny i make aside).
Are there any Sports Direct stores near you? If so, I would definitely look up if they are interested in hiring people. They'll usually advertise on recruitment websites, so it's worth having a look. I got a job there when I was only 16, and now that I look back to it, I don't think many other places would have hired me considering the sort of work that I was doing (serving on the till at only 16). Maybe it's different for other people but I think it's quite difficult to find a business that is willing to let a 16 yr old operate the till in a major high street brand store, with hundreds of transactions leaning on you. So you might want to look there as they seem to be willing to recruit just about anyone. They also like to employ young people (i.e. uni undergrads, sixth formers, etc). I'm probably biased though.
Screwfix has the best rate from what I’ve seen, seems like a manageable but quite boring job.
