Hi everyone,

I'm 14 years old and I've been looking for a part time jobs to keep me busy as well as start saving for things, like a house and car, later on. Does anyone know any popular companies that hire people under 16 because a lot of places that I've looked at you have to be at least 16!

Thanks for your help.

No private company is going to employ a minor. It's jail bait.

It is legal for 13-16 year olds to work a certain number of hours per week though.

Perhaps. But no one in their right mind is gonna want to deal with the costly legal ramifications. Think of it from the employer's perspective - an untrained and unexperienced underaged employee accuses an experienced adult employee of sexual misconduct. Nope - ain't nobody going near that. Jail bait.

That's very true. I'm thinking of expanding my search into local, smaller businesses instead. Perhaps I'll have more luck there. Thanks for your help

I think for most businesses you need to be at least 16, especially handling money etc.

You could try seeing if any individual/smaller local cafes or shops would take you.
I also know some people who are 13/14 who wash dishes in pubs/restaurants.
Otherwise, there is babysitting, dog walking, paper round that you could try?

Get a CV written up and approach possible places and see if they have any vacancies.
Best of luck
