In the UK you are not legally allowed to be employed until the age of 13. This is with the exception of paid sports or entertainment with the permission of your local authority. Many children under the age of 13 help their family out with household chores, car washing and gardening for extra pocket money. This can be a good way of bridging the gap between 11 and 13 when you are legally allowed to get your first job. Once you reach the age of 13, you can do jobs which aren’t likely to affect your health, safety or education. Such jobs may include paper rounds or shop work.

By the age of 14, you can be employed in a wide range of jobs. There are however some that you are not allowed to do due to health and safety reasons, for example working on a building site or in certain factories. To find out the exact restrictions and guidelines for your area you would need to contact your local authority. Generally, the rules for 14 year olds are; during term time, you can only work for two hours on weekdays and Sundays; during term time, you can only work for five hours on Saturdays; during a school holiday, you can work for up to five hours on a week day or a Saturday; during a school holiday, you can't work for more than two hours on a Sunday and you cannot work before 07:00 or after 19.00 on any day.

Once you are 16, you are able to do most jobs although it is still advisable you contact your local authority in the case of a job which may be viewed as hazardous. By the age of 18, you have the same work rights as adults and are legally allowed to be employed in the UK.

It may be legal to be hired at 11 years old. Check with your state's Labor Department to see the requirements. I know in our state you can get a permit at 12 years old to do lan care, farming, etc. My son got his first job a 12 working for a florist as a lawn care worker. One note though, depending on your state, they may not be required to pay full minimum wage. Also, you will need to work hard to show that you are worth the hassle of being trained. Working your first job well will lead to better opportunities down the road as you will have good references starting at an early age. Be sure to ask how you did on the job and ask if you can use them as a reference (after the job is done).

Well, it is illegal for an 11 year old to get a job. However, you can make money by helping people with chores (such as raking leaves, dog walking, or baby sitting). You can offer to help someone clean their home and charge them a few bucks. That is the only way an 11 year old can make money. You are not able to get a job until you are 16.

Im 11 to but the reason I wan't to get a job is because I need to support my family. My mom has a job at wilson hospital in newyork as a nurse and my dad works at Lockheed Martin. But we have a big house and we NEED more money so I thought that I should get a job to help out.

I'm an 11 year old boy, if I'm tutoring a little 5 year old then I'll look like a Pedophile. Too bad because I'm at a 104 grade average in spelling.

As it is illegal to employ an 11 year old. Maybe you should find your local community centre and do some volunteering, you may not get money,but you did something good. Ask parents and neighbours if they need anything doing.
