I mean this in the nicest way but probably isn't the place to look for genuine jobs. To avoid scams and stuff like that I wouldn't look for a job here. Maybe try job websites like indeed or ask any family friends so you can build your connection

Also you are pretty young yourself so I'm not sure if that will affect your chances of getting a babysitting job but I could be wrong so I'd research. But hope that helped

I just applied to loads of nurseries nearby and sent them an email about why I wanted to job and like a mini CV. Just let them know why you want a summer job there and perhaps write what skills you have to do the job and that should be fine.

To work in jobs involving people, as you're wanting to, requires a DBS check, which has a minimum age of 16. That's if you do it professionally. If you do it outside of a company, then you're running the risk of running into some dodgy people. It's nice you're wanting to do this, but I'd suggest using this time for studying/recreational activities as you won't get another opportunity like this again.

No point in asking this at the moment as we're required to stay at home, so you'll get no opportunities offered to you in the current situation.

Given your age and for everyone's safety, including your own, you're still going to be relying on people who know you and your family maybe giving you a job. Experience looking after your siblings isn't something you can use to advertise yourself, and they may want to talk with your parents and see how you interact with their children before employing you.

Hi

it is good that you are being proactive but 13 is quite young to be in charge of other people's children. You won't find any business like a nursery that would employ you at that age. Their insurance wouldn't cover it and the DBS check wouldn't be possible.
As a mother I would not have employed a 13 yo babysitter.
I would look to how you can improve your chances when you are a bit older - do you have any sort of certificate in first aid for example?
At 13, once the lockdown is over, your options are more likely to be paper round, leaflet delivery or washing your neighbours cars.
