Be responsible


Some of the jobs listed on the sites we’ve found above may not be suitable if you’re under 18 or don’t hold relevant licenses or qualifications, so remember to read the eligibility criteria carefully before applying.

When you’re looking for jobs online, things aren’t always as they seem. We always recommend doing a bit of background research on the company, call and speak to someone if you’re not sure about something, or get your parent or carer to suss out the position and the organisation to make sure you’re all happy. Do this prior to submitting any online forms or providing any information about yourself.
