Are you one of the pensioners who have decided to re-enter the workplace and seeking part-time work? If so, maybe you are going back to work because your pension does not provide enough to pay the bills. Alternatively, maybe a change in your family situation requires some additional income. Then again, maybe you just enjoy working enough that you want to get back to it. It does not matter to us at VERCIDA. We want to help you find work regardless of your age or situation.
You might be looking for a new job because of:
Change in marital status
Change in your health
A move to another part of the country
A desire to do something different
Be encouraged that there are plenty of job and career opportunities available for retired people like you. For example, the availability of student loans now makes it possible for you to go back to college for retraining. Imagine learning a new skill that enables you to start a brand-new career that will carry you through your pension years.
What You Can Contribute
What can you contribute to your next employer? First and foremost is a lifetime of working experience in the real world. It is great to have a degree and necessary in many cases, but there is no substitute for real life application. That is your strongest attribute as a retired person.
Types of Jobs Available
Retired people are unique inasmuch as they have a lot more freedom in terms of the types of jobs they choose. For example, a retired engineer could go to work for a consulting firm able to use his or her past knowledge and experience to serve their clients. A consulting position would be ideal for the retired worker just looking for supplemental income.
Consulting is but one example of the types of jobs you could look for. There are so many others as well. Maybe you might be interested in:
Retail or corporate sales
Healthcare and elder care
We could go on and on, but we're sure you get the point. There are a tremendous number of opportunities available to anyone who wants to pursue them. We encourage you to do so by way of our website.
If you are not interested in retraining or apprenticeship, you still have plenty of job choices to work with. It is simply a matter of knowing where to look. VERCIDA is a good place to start, thanks to our very extensive database, including job listings from all over the UK.
VERCIDA works with over one hundred clients who are committed to creating an inclusive work
environment. If you are an employer and interested in working with VERCIDA to promote your
diversity and inclusion initiatives and attract the best candidates, please email
email@example.com for more information.
