My 15 year old DD has a Saturday job in a children's play centre. Last summer she did lots of voluntary work at a children's holiday play scheme to build up experience and therefore put it on her cv which is the main reason she was taken on when her employers recently opened in our town. I would suggest some unpaid voluntary work first then send his cv to lots of places showing his experience, it certainly helped my daughter. I do know though that lots of places especially shops wont take on teenagers until they are 16 and over, usually in the 6th form and have done their GCSE's. Good luck to your son smile
