Children's licences and permits
Children can work part-time from the age of 13 and full-time from minimum school leaving age.
Businesses that employ young people aged 16 and under must have applied for a child employment licence.
The licences are issued for specific employment and cannot be transferred with the child if they change job or employer. The work permits are issued by the local authority where the employer is based, not where the child lives (if that is different).
