    You wont want to hear this because its hard work but McDonalds is highly flexible and pays way over the odds for your age bracket.

    Its my school/uni job and I got a comfortable time and a sports car out of it - so as a part time top up it's my recommendation

    Don't work at McDonalds!!!! An easy and independent way of money (as well as getting very fit very fast) is working for Deliveroo. It helped me massively when I was a broke student. You don't need a CV or interview - you just fill out an online form and you're good to go! Definitely worth a try - you also get to pick the hours too. Use my referral code JO128665 - would help me out hugely and I'd be happy to share the money too! D

    If you find any restaurant-type jobs go for waitressing/bar work, I am already tired of seeing frying pans & kitchen equipment. The evening shift is a nightmare honestly. Possibly the waiters/waitresses have a better job than me...
    (Most part time jobs would usually be certain hours due to you being under 18 though)

    I applied for a role like that at PC world too and got rejected because of no previous retail experience I presume. Ugh

    I worked at Costa on Saturdays and school holidays from 16 all the way through to the end of school and it was a great job. They pay all their staff the living wage as well which is extremely good for you considering minimum wage for under 18 is something like £4.10. You can even transfer to a store in your university town if you want to when you go.

    My uni has a rule that prohibits students from doing more than 15 hrs in term time. But we've all learnt time - management skills. I wouldn't do more than 5-10 hrs a week if I could avoid it at college.
