Do you have good local reach and excellent connections? Have you got the vision and insight to help us understand the journey that carers over 50 undertake on their way to employment? Are you able to identify the barriers and challenges faced and how best to overcome them?
If you can answer yes to all these questions, you might be interested in bidding for an exciting new action research project called Working Potential.
Launched by Ambition for Ageing on 8 January 2018. Its objective is to gather and collate as much information as possible about getting carers over 50 seeking to go back work in Bolton, Salford and Wigan ‘job ready’. At the same time, there is a need to help employers become as age friendly as possible in order to attract and retain an older workforce.
Led by GMCVO, Ambition for Ageing will be providing all necessary guidance, ongoing reviews and assistance to help the winning bidder meet the requirements of the project.
