Record numbers of people aged 50 and over in the UK left the workforce and became economically inactive after the pandemic, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said this spring. However, the trend seems to be reversing. Over 50s are now returning to the workforce, and we want to hear from them.
We’d like to hear from people in their 50s and 60s who have returned to the UK workforce, perhaps after a period of inactivity. How and why did you return to the workforce? Were you planning to return, or did something prompt you to go back to work? Has the cost of living crisis affected your plans?
