Hi! I would suggest applying to a shop you like! I applied for a job at Lush when I was 16 as I loved their products, and ended up working there for many years and loved it. A lot of my friends also got jobs at John Lewis and Waitrose when they were 16/17 and enjoyed that as well.

It’s sooo hard to secure a pt job though, is it best to ask around and hand my cv in

Lots of retail shops hire people on a part time basis to be honest! Especially weekend work - you will find retail shops sometimes only offer part time hours over the weekend and one day during the week. Going in and asking around is a great idea though - they might prefer you to email your cv in, so go ask first and get a feel of what's available. I know cafes are also really short staffed at the moment, so that is another idea to maybe explore if you have any near you. Best of luck

From 16 I tutored so if there’s a subject you’re good at you could try that.

I have had friends that worked at pubs, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets.

Most shops, supermarkets, fast food places, cinemas, cafes, restaurants, touristy type places etc etc etc take on 16 year olds.
Look on companies websites as some places like Tesco and mc have their vacancies on the careers section their websites. Also try websites such as indeed. Also some smaller shops, restaurants, cafes etc have their vacancies in their windows.

See if you college offers any paid peer tutoring when you join in September. If not ive heard tutorhunt is good but if you don’t have a valid passport or full driving license you can’t join.
