Part time jobs in retirement
Read our Guide to Part Time Jobs and Work
If you have retired from a responsible position in Industry or Government, probably don't need to work, but would still enjoy using your skills to good effect, on a part time basis, take a look at our series Reports from the Reach files.
REACH is the charity that offers a free UK-wide job-finding service to volunteers with management and professional skills with voluntary organisations needing their help. The jobs are normally part-time, local and pay only expenses. Go to their website at www.reach-online.org.uk.
REACH recruits people who have time to offer, whether they are retired, still working, between jobs or taking a career break. A team of "matchers" ensures that the jobs on offer are suited to the talents and experience of the volunteers. The match doesn’t have to be a follow-on of professional skills.
Over 10000 placements have been made since REACH was launched twenty
years ago. The job-matching covers a wide range of services and professions
- training, counselling, welfare, children, disability, health, the arts,
emergency services and others. The volunteers' backgrounds include such
areas as accountancy, financial services, marketing, PR, engineering, law,
medicine, teaching, journalism, sales, social work and even airline pilots.
