Are you looking for a job? A lot of people are!

It might be your first one, you might need a new one or be trying to find a better one.

Whatever the reason for the move both you and your employer have rights and obligations. And it’s good to know what to expect before you start your new job.

Your employer can set down some conditions, but some things are legal requirements.

For instance, National Minimum Wage is a legal requirement for those over school leaving age, but the rate differs depending on your age.
It’s £4.30 for apprentices, £4.62 for under 18s, £6.56 for 18-20s, £8.36 for 21 and 22 and £8.91 for anyone 23 or over.
