Can my 16 year old get a full time job?
Young people can start full-time employment as soon as they leave school, which is on the last Friday in June of the year that they turn 16 years old. If a young person starts a full time job at 16 they will still need to complete at least 280 guided learning hours a year in education or training.
Can a 16 year old work after 7pm?
By law, workers aged 16 or 17 must not work more than 8 hours a day and 40 hours a week. They must also have, as a minimum: a 30-minute break if their working day is longer than 4.5 hours.
