From the cover: “Changes in company structure following mergers, takeovers, or rationalisation programmes are producing a growing number of redundant executives in their 40s and 50s. New jobs may be hard to find. Similar problems may face the ex-service officer or person who retires while still active.

This book discusses the problems they encounter and describes the many opportunities that exist, especially in self-employment, from running a pub or shop to consultancy work or manufacturing. The financial and other implications of setting up in business are outlined together with the day to day problems of record keeping, cash requirements and taxation. Ideas for paid full or part-time work, for extending leisure activities or for taking up voluntary work of some kind are also detailed. The roles of numerous advisory organisations are described with addresses or sources for further information.

Many women will also find Guide to self-employment and retirement occupations an invaluable reference work when resuming their career after children have grown up.”
