When you need a child employment work permit

You need a child employment work permit for paid or unpaid work for school-aged pupils.

You must inform the Royal Borough of Greenwich if you offer part-time employment on a regular basis to a child between the age of 13 to 16.

You must also submit a child work permit application form to the Council within the first five days that the child starts work.

Please note - You could be prosecuted if you employ a child without a work permit.
