    Hi I'm currently in my first year of A levels and I want a part time job badly as I hate living off my parents.
    How should I confront the business as they're likely to be small ones.

    Go in with your cv in an envelope and ask if they have any part time jobs available. Even if they don’t they’ll usually take your cv in case they have openings in the future.

    Other than actually going into shops and handing your CV in you can check on job advertising websites online that display jobs in your area. Most of the application process for those jobs is online (uploading your CV, filling out questionnaires). You can send off lots of applications then!

    Hey there,

    I was in the same boat as you a few years ago.
    To be honest if you just hand in your CV and be yourself there in nothing really that can go wrong.
    Remember eye contact is key

    Hi and thank you so much for the help.
    It's unlikely that I can work in any retail shops as I live in the middle of nowhere and pubs and local restaurants are my only choices however I'm going to have to build my CV first.
    The nearest job centre is an hour and a half away so I can't do that but will defo look into kitchen porter and warehouse jobs
