Don't stop at retirement - Bill's story
Bill retired from his role as a social care coordinator following a long and varied career but returned to his role on a flexible basis. He’s now able to spend more time on the aspects of the work he enjoys the most.
“The best part is the hands on care. Being able to support people to do the things they aren’t able to do for themselves is so rewarding. This is what I have always loved to do.
“I wouldn’t have continued to work if I didn’t love the job so much. I’m lucky that I’m fit and healthy and still able to do it. I am able to do what I really enjoy doing, working with people and providing what is an extremely valuable service.
“To any retirees, whatever you are looking to do – I would definitely recommend returning to work and giving something back. It is so good for your health and wellbeing and keeps you active. Plus the extra money is a lovely bonus!”
