Hi,

I don't think there are any specific recuitment websites for different age groups. I would consider looking on the usual websites (Indeed etc) for a job. Also consider what kind of role you are looking for; some roles are specialist and require certain qualifications etc... so you would need to make sure you meet the requirements.

thanks

There's no such thing - age is a protected characteristic, you can't employ on the basis of age.

Don't wallow in your age - write an effective, competitive CV and if necessary, avoid dates that will give your age away. However, very few screeners do the maths and who cares anyway - employers want the best person for the job.

Take a look at The Prince's Initiative for Mature Enterprise (PRIME). It's for over 50s who are unemployed or at risk of redundancy/forced retirement, to help them become self-employed.

use indeed and you may include your birth date if you wish. However, it is no longer necessary since the Equality Act of 2010 makes age discrimination illegal in the recruitment process.
