How to apply for a work permit

If you have found a job an application form needs to be completed by your employer, parent/guardian and school.

Once complete, the application should be returned to:

Attendance and Prosecution Service
Sandwell Council House
Freeth Street
Oldbury
West Midlands
B69 3DE

Checks will be made to ensure that the employer and form of employment are appropriate.

If cleared, a work permit will be issued to you and a copy to the employer.

If the form of employment is prohibited, you will be notified of this and a work permit will not be issued.
