I turned 16 at the beginning of this month and I'm russian, by me nobody really got a job before 18. I've not had any jobs yet. Do you think it's shameful I haven't worked yet?

If you ever want a job, just get a part-time/weekend job. If anyone your age works, its usually not too many hours I wouldn't worry about it. I use the Young Work App to find temp work, their age range is 16-25 so I'd use that.

Hi, I hope you are well.

16 is about the age people start to look for part-time jobs in the UK as most people that age are still studying. However, everyone gets jobs at different paces as it depends on their current commitments.

I hope this helps.
