Work

Are you interested in working part-time, volunteering or perhaps continuing your lifelong learning? You’ll find information and links to relevant organisations here on the YourLifeChoices Work page, plus the latest news and updates on issues and opportunities for workers over 50 years of age.

And why not check out the Jobs for Older Workers page to see if you can find something to suit if some extra income would come in handy. Are you a senior? Want some hints on staying employed?
