If you are currently looking for a part-time job, it must of course also be suitable in terms of age. So that you can get some ideas on how you can supplement your pocket money, we are introducing you to jobs that you can do at the age of 15.

  • Computer help

    Is it more common for adults to speak to you when they have problems with their computer? And can you usually help? Great, then turn your knowledge into money! After all, it is not uncommon for adults either not to have a great idea about their computer or simply have no nerves or no time to take care of it. Or they don't dare to do it because they are afraid of breaking something ... more »

  • Warehouse work

    It is not uncommon for the warehouse to be a place where everything ends up that would otherwise have no place. And that is precisely why there will be chaos here at some point, which is why they are looking for a temporary worker who takes care of order again :) This applies to offices as well as to shops or businesses.

  • Packing service

    More and more shops are relying on additional service for their customers in order to make shopping as pleasant as possible. There are often waiting times at the cash registers in supermarkets because it takes so long to pack the products. Often, however, the goods are scanned so quickly that customers cannot keep up with the packing. Then half is still at the till, but the amount to be paid is already called ... more »

  • Housesitter

    As a house sitter, you take care of other people's apartments or houses. Be it because they are on vacation or, for example, more often on business trips. Most of the time it is about "movement" in the apartment or house - it looks like someone is there. Because it is not uncommon for burglars to peek out objects where it can be seen that no one is at home, only to get in there and calmly clear the booth ... more »

  • Home help

    When you're a little younger, there aren't that many ways to supplement your pocket money because most activities are forbidden for you by law.

You can find a student job like this by asking your neighborhood whether you ... more »

  • distribute flyers

    A relatively simple part-time job that you can do without much prior knowledge is distributing flyers. You've probably been given something like that before.

  • Babysitting

    One of the most popular student jobs is, without a doubt, babysitting. Not least because it is one of the activities that you can already do privately at the age of 13. Nevertheless, the job should not be underestimated, because as a babysitter you have the highest level of responsibility - namely for a little person! And that's why the focus should not be on a quick increase in pocket money, but ... more »

  • Youth protection tests

    Hard alcohol and tobacco may not be sold to children or young people. This is what the Youth Protection Act provides for the protection of adolescents.

These tests are intended to check whether, as a teenager, you can easily smoke or drink alcohol ... more »

  • Pet care

    If you have a pet, you have to take care of it every day: feed, care for it, stroke it, go outside, play, etc. But not every owner always has time for it. For example, when he is on vacation, on a business trip or so busy that he always comes home late. In such cases, the owners look for someone to look after. The most common pets are dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds and fish ... more »

  • In front of the camera

    People are always looking for new faces for film productions, commercials, music videos or other clips. And in most cases, it's not models that are needed, but people like you and me. Because in addition to the main actors, who are usually trained actors, you often see many other actors in the background who bring a scene to life. more »
