The work for my parents has a schedule, I am given a pay slip with my wages and I have to work a certain amount per week due to the contract I was asked to sign by my parents. However, I'm worried that I should get a proper job before uni to look good for future employers, but there are timing and bus issues at the moment. Should I apply for a "proper" job to ensure that employers know I have experience or will employers see my job as a real job? I also volunteer at a shop.

    How is the work for your parents not 'proper work'? You are just working in a restaurant which will give you a range of skills to take into another job. You don't say on a CV or application form how you got your previous job, what you were paid, or who the owners of the business were.
