I feel for you. I had lovely job for 15 years then made redundant. ive applied for 300 jobs, had one trial but all the staff were very young and I worked hard but I knew I wasnt gonna get the job cos of my age. im crying and skint. no one cares about experience and we are grafters but they always choose youth! in my teens and 20s I got jobs easy but now its impossible. I keep opening emails rejections all the time. I was bad I was replying accusing companies of prejudice and ageism.  don’t give up hope. when covid over reply for maybe jobs that pay less but are available. then you can jobsearch and find something you deserve. good luck
