Where to find Temp /Parttime jobs for 15 year old girls ?

Postby sporemum » Sun May 15, 2011 9:10 am

Can anyone share on what can 15 yr olds do for temp or parttime jobs and any contacts ? My girl is keen for some exposure but i do not know what is available for her age, and her time availability - shortterm, more during vacation time.

In my opinion, best if there are one-off 2-3 day expo sales type of jobs, but we dont know how to go about finding out and getting these jobs. Thanks!

Hi sporemum,

You can ask yr dd to sign in to some recruitment firm website - eg Kelly Svcs, Adecco, etc , they do have lots of such expo jobs.

You can also keep a lookout in the ST classifieds section too.

I believe so, see Law Society write-up on Employmt Act :

http://www.lawsociety.org.sg/public/you ... yment.aspx

Employment of Children and Young Persons

Employment of Children and Young Persons

Children below the age of 14 years are not allowed to work in an industrial undertaking unless it is family business where only family members are employed.

An industrial undertaking includes mines, quarries, factories, shipyards, businesses and companies carrying out construction work, transport (including bus, ship, car, lorry) operators.

Children of 12 years and above may be employed in a non-industrial undertaking to do light work suited to their capacity. A certificate by a medical officer shall be conclusive of whether any work is suited to that particular child.

No young person (ie between 14 and 16 years) shall be employed in any industrial undertaking declared by the Minister to be one which cannot employ young persons.

Any employer who breaches any of the above commits an offence and can be jailed for up to 6 months and/or fined up to $1,000 for the first offence an up to two years and/or $2,000 for a subsequent offence.


Work approved and supervised by the Ministry of Education or the Institute of Technical Education, Singapore (‘ITE’) carried on any technical, vocational or industrial training school or institute and employment under any apprenticeship programme approved and supervised by the ITE are not subject to the above provisions.

sporemum, if you child is interested in getting exposure, she can try getting an internship instead. It can be a formal one through applying to companies or informally helping a friend's or relative's business. Don't discount small business or "unbranded" companies as sometimes they do give the child a good idea of how SMEs are run. On the other hand, some kids who work for MNCs ended up doing mundane things like data-entry.
