      I’ve worked for the same company for 33 years, now unemployed at 58. I have so much to offer, think positive, try different ways to a new career, even try 4 weeks work in something you want to do, without commitment to the employer, just to gain the experience, if it can suit you!

      Hello Stephen,

      I am also struggling to find a job too. Can I ask what job are u looking for. Royal Mail and the Census are recruiting for temp staff. There are jobs in the care sector ie care worker. Volunteering would be good to get some experience.

      Hi Stephen I’m Angie I’m 54  i just read your post & can relate so just wanted to reach out as I’m.in the same position, for various reasons  & have’nt worked properly for a good few years & i get bored & v frustrated because as you’ve said i know I’ve still got lots to offer & some good skills picked up from experience & age should be an advantage not a disadvantage really annoys me ( i won’t swear lol ) if you don’t mind me asking what work  did you used to do ?  mine was working with families but ive done lots of other work i got made redundant from a job couple years back which i enjoyed i miss it also because its the social.aspect  i really miss & sometime being unemployed is isolating  i really want to start up some kind of social support to get people talking sharing ideas & info & some socialising  & meet upsi know many people feel isolated for various reasons and it impacts on health mental & physical . Anyway pls feel free to message me Stephen.

      Anyone reading & would be interested pls feel free to message me im very down to earth friendly & completely genuine. Thanks
