    I’m 15 at the moment and have a few months (3ish) till I turn 16. I’m planning on getting a weekend job as soon as I can like anywhere to earn money and give me something to do other than revision but I’m wondering whether I should wait until I’m actually 16 or should I try applying now?

    Haha i'm in the exact same situation as you, i was told to start applying now as the employer wont really effect them and if they require you to be 16 you can still have a nice contact but I honestly don't even know where to look for a job.

    Honestly neither! I don’t have any work experience either so I’m hoping that companies will realise that I didn’t get the opportunity to it agh
