Jobs For 14 Year Olds

While there are some limitations on the types of jobs you can do at the age of 14, there are still several opportunities available that can help you develop essential skills and responsibility. Take a look at the different options currently available on Trade Me Jobs.

One of the common jobs for fourteen-year-olds in New Zealand is babysitting. Many families with young children are often in need of reliable and responsible babysitters to look after their kids while they are away. Babysitting not only allows you to earn some extra pocket money but also helps you learn how to care for others and take responsibility.

Another option for young teenagers is to deliver newspapers or pamphlets in your local neighbourhood. This job can be a great way to get some exercise while earning money. It also teaches you time management skills and the importance of being punctual with your deliveries. Plus, you'll become more familiar with your community as you navigate the streets to complete your rounds.

If you enjoy spending time outdoors, consider offering lawn mowing or gardening services to your neighbours. Many people appreciate the help with maintaining their lawns, weeding their gardens, or watering their plants. Taking on gardening tasks not only keeps you physically active but also means you learn how to follow directions, as the people you work for will tell you want you to do.

Pet sitting and dog walking are also popular jobs for fourteen-year-olds. Many pet owners are often in need of someone reliable to care for their furry friends while they are away at work or on vacation. Whether it's feeding, walking, or playing with pets, this job allows you to spend time with animals and earn money while doing something enjoyable.

You can also explore opportunities in the retail sector. Some stores may hire young teenagers to assist with basic tasks like stocking shelves, organising merchandise, or helping customers with inquiries. Working in a retail environment gives you firsthand experience in customer service and allows you to interact with a diverse range of people.
