      Hi I wondered if you’d looked at the restless.co.uk site https://restless.co.uk/career-advice/and read some of the suggestions? What kinds of work are you looking for at the moment?

      I’d be keen to find out more details so perhaps I or somebody else on here can suggest some avenues for you.

      All the best to you, Susan

      Hi both

      A good starting point on our site is probably our career change advice which you can find here: https://restless.co.uk/career-advice/career-change-advice/

      However you have also mentioned ill health so I thought you might also be interested in some inspiration on roles that you can do from home: https://restless.co.uk/career-advice/job-ideas/10-roles-where-you-can-work-from-home/

      Have you also tried searching for jobs in your local area on our homepage search?  http://www.restless.co.uk

      We are trying to build a site full of useful resources for our members so if there is anything else that we can help with or you’d like to see on here, please do let me know.  We listen to all feedback.  Thank you and wishing you both all the very best in your job search.

        Hi Angela

        What types of work are you thinking about trying? So sorry to hear that you are battling physically especially after years of being a care worker, which is such a wonderful profession helping others.

        Let us know how things are going!

        Best, Susan
