    Hi I am 56 year old male and am presently employed but my contract is due to end an the middle of November and I need to setup something to keep me going. At 56 I don't think its going to be that simple for me to get employment so working from home would be of interest to me. Any ideas would be gratefully accepted.

    Hi Paul

    Many thanks for getting back to me, I have been a van driver for the past 2 years delivering medical records for the NHSCT, and my contract is due to run out due to lack of funds in the NHS, I have been in the Transport industry most of my working life but unfortunately the years haven't been good to my old body and I now have back problems leaving me unable to do the manual required by the majority of employers. I have an ebay account which I use regularly and have used to buy and sell for over 6 years and I would hope to be able to develop something along those lines maybe going to auctions buying selling etc. but I'm open to anything at the minute, I also repair laptops and desktops but that has slowed down a lot and that's why I'm trying to get into something else. I was hoping to make in the region of £1000 a month but things aren't that bad just yet as my wife has a good job and I have a few hundred quid a month coming in form a couple of personal pension schemes I set up in my youth, so If you can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Kenny,

    Sorry to hear of your predicament, You seem to enjoy driving? How about a job as a taxi driver, you can do a variety of hours and there's not a lot of lifting, and you don't often get a job where you can sit down all day.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for sharing more background information on your background. I used to work in the public sector as well so can appreciate about the changes re: funding. As you are open to exploring new opportunities working from me, do feel free to connect with me.

    Unfortunately, I had to stop working due to chronic pain which does affect my body as well. I now work casually from home to fit my current health condition. Do feel free to learn more about from my Introduction Thread.

    Best Regards,

    The OP is now sixty - he was 56 when he posted four years ago and he 'ain't been back since.

    Unless you are the OP (in which case we'd love to hear what happened) please don't continue to reply to this thread.

    (Just a reminder for all forum members - a quick glance at the bottom of a post will tell you when it was posted.)
