Wondering which jobs a 13 year old can do? If you are looking to find a little part time job after school, we might have the solution for you. There are several great possibilities for you to earn money with side jobs or completing tasks for your friends and family. Keep reading to find out more.
Which jobs for 13 year olds are available?
The jobs a 13 year old can do are broad but perhaps not so conventional. Although you cannot work in a bar or club, you can in fact get a paper round or try your hand at babysitting. These local jobs have many perks and should leave you with a nice boost to your weekly pocket money!
As a 13 year old, you can help your parents with chores or tutor your neighbour for a couple of pounds a week. You could also try out gardening, perhaps for your grandma or parent’s friends. By helping to dig out their weeds once a week, you could land yourself a side job and still have time to do your own chores!
What are the rules for working at 13 years old?
Working at the age of 13 means there are a couple of rules you should be aware of. At this age, you shouldn’t be working in a place similar to a factory or industrial site. You must also avoid working before 7am or after 7pm, and you shouldn’t work for more than 4 hours without taking a break of at least 1 hour.
During term time, 13 to 14 year olds should work a maximum of 2 hours on school days. There are also restrictions for working on the weekend, with a maximum set at 5 hours on a Saturday and 2 hours on a Sunday. So, if you have signed up for a paper round, we would recommend you to complete this on Saturday where you have plenty of time to spare.
