Teen Jobs Help Center

  • What is Teen Jobs? – Teen Jobs is an easy to use platform that quickly connects employers and households to teenage employees. Simply search teenage job seekers with the job category, location and days, to contact teenagers for free. We list teenagers, not jobs, which greatly reduces the time spent, listing jobs, then waiting for applicants to apply.

    Do I need to sign up? - No, one of the many advantages to Teen Jobs is that employers do not need to sign up.

    How much should I pay the teenager? - Teen Jobs allows teenagers to set a pay rate, which indicates how much the teenager would like to be paid per hour. This should give you a guide on how much to pay them.

    Rules and Regulations:
    Pay can either be hourly, or a set amount to do a task, which is an independent contractor. Read more.

    The current minimum wage is $17.70 per hour for teenagers who are 16 years or older. If a teenager is younger than 16, then there is no minimum wage. More on minimum wages can be found here.

    It is up to you to negotiate an appropriate pay rate/ contract amount, as the pay is a private agreement. This advice is intended as a general guide and if in doubt, it is up to you to ensure that the employment situation is correct.

    Do I need a contract? - For regular employment positions, an individual employment contract will need to be signed by both parties. For one-off jobs, an independent contractor would be the typical employment category. For contractors, no employment contract is needed but the pay rates and conditions should be written on a contract for service prior to the job commencing. See example here.

    How does Teen Jobs keep teenagers safe? – We take safety very seriously and aim to provide as safe a platform as possible, while still allowing enough information to enable teenagers to get jobs. We currently have these features in place:
    - Teenagers under 16 must confirm they have their parents permission and are being overseen by their parents before they can sign up.
    - There are no personal details displayed on the website. (phone number, email address, last name and addresses)
    - There is no feedback features or way to comment on teenagers profiles so teenagers cannot be 'trolled'.
    - Contact can only be made through the website - we keep a copy of all contact details.
    - When a job connection is made a workplace address must be given (which is recorded) and the teenager is told to only meet there.
    - There are numerous cybersafety messages to teenagers on the website, including with the contact message from the employer to the teenager.
    - The contact to the teenager comes with a message around involving your parents in meeting the employer.
    - Teenagers can enter as much or as little information as they feel comfortable with.
    - Teenagers are blocked from some job categories based on age - for example, under 14-year-olds cannot babysit.
