Like has been said in a lot of other threads, 99% of places do not take people on until they are 16. a) because of all the rules regarding employing under 16's and b) you dont have a national insurance number.

Keep trying with the paper rounds.

Yeah the rules are a little different for employing under 16s, but if you do get a job before that age you get a national insurance number in the post early. Fun fact from personal experience

That's so 1960s, delivering papers, get on with the times, and make sure you report your income to HMRC or your parents will end up behind bars.

How early?
I smell slight ******** here.
According to the gov website:
"Children under 16 don’t pay National Insurance, so you only need to include them on your payroll if their total income is over their personal allowance"
You do not get one early.

Look for work in the local hotel or restaurant. Washing up is one such task you should be able to do.

It also says on the gov website that
"The youngest age a child can work part-time is 13"
I just wasn't entitled to minimum wage

Worked at a Laserquest at 15 for about a year before I left just before my GCSEs. Made £3.25 an hour on a zero hour contract. Nice try!

I still dont quite believe you.
I know people who work for hmrc and from experience they dont usually give them out early.
Even so, thats not going to help the OP, who is only 13. They definitely arent going to give them out at 13.

Well that was my personal experience! I received a second copy of my NI just before I turned 16. If you don't want to believe it, that's fine. Just wanted to try and give some friendly advice to OP
