Before you start looking for a job, phone your local council. They may have made their own changes to these laws:
The Children and Young Persons Act says that you must be at least 13 to have a job.
13 or 14?
You can work a for up to five hours a day on Saturdays and school holidays. You must not work for more than 25 hours a week.
15 or older?
If you're 15 or older you can work for up to 8 hours a day on Saturdays and school holidays. You must not work for more than 35 hours a week.
Need a break?
Don't worry, all children must have at least a two-week break from any work during the school holidays.
That's according to the European Community Directive 94/33, issued in August 1998.
