I really want to start working because i need money. I dont want to ask my parents for stuff anymore, i want to buy things I like by myself.
Any tips on how to get a job? And what job would be good for a teen?

As a 15 year old, you cannot legally hold salaried employment as you do not have a national insurance number. You'll get one sent to you just before your 16th Birthday. I'd recommend offering to support family/friends with teaching their children subjects your particularly good at in school - it can be done over zoom/teams as well since you can't physically meet in person at the moment.

99% of places don't take people on until they are 16.
You could get a paper round

Most places don’t employ the under 16. But you could try for a paper round or look around in small cafes and restaurants. You could also volunteer at places - you probably wouldn’t get paid for this but it will help you to build up your CV and gain some work experience. Hope this helps you a little bit, Beth x
