    As has been said in a lot of other threads, 95% of places dont take people on until they are 16. A- due to all the laws surrounding employing under 16's and b- because you dont have a national insurance number.
    Your best bet is a paper round.
    Either that or babysitting, gardening etc etc.

    I'm 15 and in the same boat, have been looking around for jobs since I was 14.

    I already have an NI number, but even with that, it's been impossible to find somewhere that takes on under 16s. There aren't even any paper rounds in my area (rural Scotland).

    However, you could try babysitting. If I lived in an area with more children, I would definitely do this. There is no legal age to babysit (recommended age is 16 but that is definitely not a law).

    I hope you can find something.
