Advice for over 40s

If you are considering a change in career or want to understand your finances, the mid-life MOT is available as an online signposting package to help you plan for important changes.

It can act as a useful stocktake to encourage better advice about work, finances and health. The work and skills section of the mid-life MOT (external website) can signpost you to the support you need to return into employment.

Voluntary work can be a great way to help you get new skills and build confidence in a different field of work. Find out what voluntary work is on offer (external website) or contact your local volunteer centre (external website).

Plus try to think about areas you’d like to develop in, The Skills Toolkit (external website) has free, high quality digital and numeracy courses from a range of providers such as Google Digital Garage, Lloyds Bank and Open University.

Remember to update your CV with your new skills, training and experience.
