6/11/2019 - I need to find a job

06/11/17 - Female, 14 :

I need to find a job I'm turning 15 soon, but the money is needed desperately. I don't know where to look for a good job.

Hi there

Thanks for your message.† Lots of young people start to think about a part-time job around your age to help fund their social activities, clothes, phone or to save for something special.† If you look at the work pages on Youthoria youíll find lots of information to help you get started, from the rules relating to under 16ís working, how to search for a job, how to apply and how to write a good CV.

This time of year lots of high street shops take on extra staff just for the Christmas period so itís worth walking around Cambridge and looking at the job adverts in shop windows.

I am a little concerned that you say you need the money desperately.† If there is another issue that you need support with, try and talk to a teacher you get on well with or another trusted adult.† With Christmas approaching many people can begin to worry about money but there is a lot of support out there if you know where to look.

Good luck with your job search.† If you do need any extra support or help you can pop along to one of our Youth Support Drop inís view the details of our drop in's here and speak to a Young Peopleís Worker.† Alternatively Childline can†help anyone under 19 in the UK with any issue they are going through. Whether itís something big or small,†their trained counsellors are there to offer you support 0800 11 11

Please do come back to me if you need any further advice or clarification
