could i get a job despite my age?

Ali says -

Hi there and thank you for your question

The youngest age a child can work part-time is 13yrs.

Children can only start full-time work once they’ve reached the minimum school leaving age - they can then work up to a maximum of 40 hours a week.  (You can leave school on the last Friday in June if you’ll be 16 by the end of the summer holidays)


Please take a look at this link with your parent/carers to find out the legality of your situation.
