Is a paper round out of the question? When you are sixteen, how about being a steward at a sports stadium? working in a news agent?

I started a paper round when I was 13 at the local sweet shop, and also started working in the shop when I was about your age.
I'm not sure what age the big supermarkets allow you to start work, but it might be worth asking.
it's nice to see someone making an effort, so good luck.

Baby sitting, dog walking, paper rounds or selling in school (chocolate bars and lucozade)
#5
Dog walking and babysitting are good ones - you could maybe put an advert up in the local supermarket too.

Wash cars. Get a bucket, sponge, soap. you can target posh areas, new cars, nice houses, or head to an office car park and catch people at work. Do a decent job and you'll have regular clients. I'm sure there's plenty of YouTube videos that'll teach you how to do this efficiently.

You can start working at big supermarkets from the age of sixteen. I have a friend who worked at Tesco after asking for a week's work experience that went well.

Thank, you everyone. I used to do paper rounds when suddenly the shop closed down so I have been looking for another job since.

Fair play to the OP for making the effort, well done .. (_;)

I ended up going round several shops in the town and asking what the minimum age was to work there. Unfortunately only found 1 which said 15. One said as I was near to my 16th birthday they might be able to take me on but, nothing came of that and I ended up working at the one place that did say 15 year olds could work there. Which in my case was Priceless shoes. I was supposed to get till training when I turned 16 but, that never happened but I wasnt too bothered. This was quite a few years ago though and makes me :( / oO realising it was 14 years ago :O but from what my brother says things havent really changed much, he couldnt find a job until he was 16. Best thing to do is just ask in various shops and see what they say :). Then if any say 15 is fine, go from there.

it's difficult to earn money as a kid since employment laws are concerned about children being taken advantage of in employment, child labour is taboo in the UK.

self employment is the best way to earn money as a kid which unfortunately means having to go and ask for work. so offer to clean cars, weeding and cutting the lawn in the summer, walk dogs, baby sit.

Thank you so much, I think I will try this around the centre :)

I've thought about cleaning cars, but I'm not too sure. Thank you

Good luck. Im sure with a positive mind like you seem to have, you will find something suitable soon. Let us know how it goes :3

If you do opt for the car washing always have the homeowner fill your bucket, never enter the house as there's a lot of unsavoury characters knocking about.

Can't suggest to much more to what people have said above I think you might have more chance in trying locally owned shops such as fruit and veg, bakers, flower or newsagents as they might pay cash in hand for work. I admire your get up and go attitude stay positive and good luck.
