to Any Retail & Customer Service Insiders

Hi there, I am currently 14 and 1 and a half months to becoming 15. I would like to work in the cafe in Northern Ireland, Co Down, Bloomfield Shopping centre. Would I be able to apply this young? I have some experience with dealing with customers and coffee making is my hobby

Hi Rhys,
just to add
It's policy that all employees must be a minimum of 16 years of age.

In England and Wales a person is no longer of compulsory school leaving age untill after the 30th June in the school year in which their 16th birthday occurs.

Thank you
