Hello to everyone.
My name is Tony, I am a young 66, I Iive in Birmingham, I work in the car manufacturing trade as a manual worker , and the future is looking uncertain. I am on furlough, and unlikely to be resuming work until August at the least.
I am going to start looking for other work as there seems to be no clarity about whether my job is secure. I do worry, and get stressed, and this is causing a lot of arguing with my wife.
I would love to work in a different environment, eg: I enjoy paper work, computer work etc: even though I have no particular skills with computers. I enjoy meeting people and trying something new.
The trouble is, will any company take on a guy who is 66, and give him a chance to train? I even think that retail work, whatever, would be an option also.
I am okay with figures and English, but do not hold any qualifications.
Thank you for reading this, and I want to send my best wishes to everyone.
