When I was 14 I did a paper round, but gave it in as it was 300 papers, two entire evenings work right up until bedtime for £6. Then at 15 I worked in a supermarket 2 nights a week and gave that up because it was just awful. I decided I'd rather have no money!
Any job ideas for a 16 year old ?
I worked at a tomato and cucumber grower washing plastic trays at 16. Earned 1.58 an hour. Miserable job but it focused the mind a bit on school
I started working in the local waitrose at 16 - saturdays and one evening a week, but they were always offering extra evenings on top of that.
In the school holidays I was working there up to 50 hours a week - and I went back during the holidays from uni (first year anyway - then I got long hair and earings which didn't fit the dress code)
This was before sunday opening and 24 hour opening - so evan more hours to be had these days I would imagine
Good to see a guy actually saying he wants a job and not relying on the joke of his EMA. I along with 90% of my mates had to get a job at 16 to pay for everything we wanted and as much as they say there isnt any jobs they just have to look above or think about it for iniative. There always will be exceptions such as teens that look after an ill relative for example.
Cleaner? Ask your next door neighbours if at the weekend you can help them with the cleaning for a tenner a session. A bit of hoovering, dusting or ironing for an hour or two isnt hard work. Also, my mate used to weed gardens/prune bushes and trees/cut the grass of his next door neighbours. Thats not rocket science but can require a bit of research to save you killing someones plant!
Are you looking for a full-time job or part time around continuing education?
If full time, I'd look in to an Apprentice scheme with any large engineering companies in the area. BAE do them and they pay very well (£6-9 per hour) and allow you a paid day off per week to continue your education at a sponsored college.
Normally its Dish Washer at one of the restaurants in Lichfield
