Barriers to employment for the over 50s

The commission decided to do this review to understand the provision and support available for older women and men to remain in and return to employment, in a rapidly changing job market. 

The purpose of the review is to find out about the pre-employment and adult learning support available in the borough for over 50s, older women returning to employment and to consider the impact of zero hours contract on local employment. This review will consider how the Council can influence and encourage local employers to pay the London living wage and recognise the benefits of flexible working arrangements. We will seek to establish if the support need is additional resources or a requirement to change the use of current resources to support this group. Barriers to employment for the over 50s review
