I’m looking to apply for summer jobs but most want some form of work experience, however I have none. So my question is, what jobs are out there for students during the summer that require no work experience or are just generally easy to get into.

Thank you

unless a job is advertised as summer term only, it's not a summer job and you won't get it because they can get someone to do it longer term in almost every instance

Hi
Look for jobs that are Temporary contracts as that gives you a fixed term of working .

We all must start from somewhere as like at the beginning as when we do get jobs what experience does any school children leaving school have - none.
What sort of jobs are you wanting to do - as some retailers has a age restrictions for certain departments.
Try the likes of Sainsburys, Tesco, Asda , Argos, Boots , B&Q as they take on students all the time, no experience necessary as will be given but you need to impress them at the interviews and any online job application's to.
Good luck in your search, they won't start the job advertising four summer untill early May to start about end of June. If you wanting to work part-time at weekends untill the summer then start looking now and then you can work the whole summer if you want to during the weekdays as overtime is widely available in majority of places especially Boots & Tesco .

You may find it easier to seek employment with a small local business, such as with a trader on your local market (if you have one) or as a waiter/waitress in a local pub/cafe. My first job was as a stall assistant on a market stall. This was minimum wage and was only for 7 hours on a Saturday which was one of the busiest trading days so it made sense for her to only take me on for a few hours on a Saturday, as this also worked around school for me.

Whenever you have the time. Start handing CVs out and such. There's not really such a thing as a "summer job". Just detail in your CV that you're a full time student so only available at X, Y or Z times but will be much more available once summer hits and during school holidays/end of terms.
