Hi guys, does anybody know any kind of local places that would hire a 14 year old? I live near to Glasgow, Scotland. I have asked lots of retail shops and all say 15/16. It would be really helpful if anyone knew anything? I have also checked on the governments website and you can work at weekends for maximum of 4 hours once you are 13. Hope someone can help. Thanks x

As every 14 year old who asks this question is told you won’t be able to get a proper job as such until you are 16 with most places and even if they do employ you you have no minimum wage so you can be paid literally anything.

Best options are a paper round. Or try asking neighbours and family etc if they want any help with babysitting, dog walking car cleaning etc.

Pretty much this really - a paper round/babysitting etc can be an okay amount of money though, so it's definitely worth looking into

Like has been said in a lot of other threads- Pretty much everywhere wont take on under 16's. A) because of all the rules that surround employing school kids and B) you dont have a national insurance number until you are nearly 16.
A paper round is probably your best bet.

Hi I am looking for a job too! And I have looked at so many websites I can't find one I live in the UK so It's best to get a permit and CV first then you can maybe go ask hairdressers if you can work there. I have tried it and it works!

They probably mean a work permit. You apply via your local council. I can only find a link for England and Wales though.

Only if -13, and it's the employer that needs to get this not the worker.

Hiya, I'm now 16 and have had 2 jobs since I made this thread... Try out local cafes(when they re-open of course) and for right now try places such as takeaways, chinese, indian, chip shops. In the meantime try selling old things online such as ebay and depop and vinted to make some extra pennies...

Hope this helps

Hi Heeba! You’re really really going to struggle to find a job - never mind one with good pay. This is a difficult task even for someone of working age! I managed to get a job in a cafe age 14, however I was paid £4 an hour for 3-4hours on Saturday. It wasn’t very good. With you desiring that good wage Id advise against cafes/restaurants just now, especially considering the current COVID19 situation they’re not a reliable job to have just now. The best advice I can offer you for your age and for the current situation is to sell on online platforms - ebay, vinted, depop for instance! This is very easy to do and I have been doing it since I was your age with success. You can start just by clearing out and getting rid of belongings you don’t need anymore (think old clothes, things that don’t fit or you don’t wear, toys from childhood you may not use anymore, miscellaneous items, if you have younger siblings ask your parents if you can sell their old clothing/toys too)! It’s money you can make from home, whenever you want. If you have any questions about that let me know )
