    Sorry old son but that is all you can do . under UK law no company may employ you until you are 16 and have a NI number issued to you ,, Up to 16 you are in full time education and you are supported and maintained by your parents , At 16 you can get a job or continue your education,, college, Uni etc , if you wish ,, I also understand the 16 school leaving age will be raised to 17 and eventually 18 .. so no one can work till that age in years to come , good for you though to look to the future and wish you well ,

  • 10 years ago will give you job info and advice for your age. You can work from the age 13 and up but it is a big hassle - you and the employer have to get proper permission and you are both subject to alot of rules. My mum has a pub and employs a young 'pot washer' because he was a friend of a friend. My son worked as a 'glass and bottle' collector in the local social club at your age but again, he got the job through his friends already working there. Good luck. P.S. I am talking about kids in school and working in the evenings and weekends.
