Yeah, Ok I'm new here. So before I start my moaning. Let me introduce myself.
My name Is Faye, I'm 15 from Kent. So..
I NEED a job. My mum wouldn't shut up the other day, We had some HUGE arguement about how I need to pay my way. I refuse to do paper round. Expesially as i'm terrified of dogs. ¬¬
But anyway, So I told her I would get one. Thing is, I don't know were to start. My cousin said I need permission from my school to work on Saterdays:eek2: ? Well.. Shes 23 now so maybe times have changed. Could someone tell me were to start coz im practicly pulling my hair out here trying to prove to my mum I can get a job!.
Thanks (= x :blush:

    You don't need permission from school to work. But you have to make sure you work within certain hours, you can't work before 7am or after a certain time during the week. Not sure on the rest.

    Have you any local pubs? You could go in and ask if they need any waitresses.

    Hairdressers, pubs, hotels, restaurants, car wash, market stalls, babysitting are the few I can think of off hand that tend to employ younger people.

    Can you work in a pub at 15?
    I had my first job at a garden centre at 15..and i did it because i wanted to start earning a bit more for clothes and food. like others have mentioned, waitressing might be a good start...
