Information for mature age job seekers

Australians are living 25 years longer than 100 years ago. They are healthier and many are willing and able to work for longer.

For individuals, staying in work helps to improve health outcomes, self-esteem and social and emotional wellbeing. Working helps people stay more socially connected and retain a sense of purpose. It leads to more financial security over our longer life time, and greater input into the economy.

The following resources aim to give older workers ideas about how to remain in the workforce including how to change careers, look for work or start a business.
