Life Career Package; A Mobile App Built to Help the Over 50s Out of Work
London, United Kingdom – It’s My LIFE ltd, a digital career service, is proud to announce that LIFE CAREER PACKAGE 1.0 is now globally available for download on the App Store, Google Play and BlackBerry. The Life Career Package is a specialised, professional application designed as a guide to planning and realising career, educational goals or business plans in modern Europe.
With over 3.5 million people between the age of 50 and 64 out of work in the UK, redundancy and unemployment is a huge problem for the over 50 community; many of whom possess a wealth of skill and ambition, yet are turned away from employment because of their age.
We need to face facts, there are currently over 21 million people over the age of 50 in the UK and that number is growing fast. By 2013, it is estimated that there will be more people over the age of 65 than under 15. The ageing population is the biggest issue that society is facing.
The Life Career Package is a specialised, professional application specifically designed to assist those in the 50 age group with their career development. Whether returning to work or education, changing careers, becoming self-employed or even starting a business, these are tough times in the job market and the 50 demographic has been one of the hardest-hit by the recession and recent changes to benefits legislation.
To overcome these obstacles in modern Britain it pays to be up to date with all of the relevant knowledge and know-how, which is where the Life Career Package comes in.
‘Life’ is a useful and accessible guide to planning and realising a career, educational goal or business plan in Britain, designed to simplify and explain the complex routes into each profession, with the emphasis on assisting the 50+ sector.
The app contains simple, easy-to-use colour-coded guides to industry sectors. This enables the user to research and learn more about their specific areas of interest. They may then plan a route to the position they want to reach in three clicks. The Life Career Package explains the certified systems of accreditation which govern access to certain areas of employment and the qualifications and skills needed for professional growth and achievement. It can even help you book your driving theory test or CSCS test within the Life Career Package.
The app also features an efficient, easy to use system which guides the user through the notoriously tricky process of becoming self-employed or setting up a business, with a guide to how to save money and take advantage of the support and financial assistance available to small businesses. With UK entrepreneurs set to benefit from a further GBP69 million of governmental funding over the coming year, this app ensures that those setting up an enterprise do not miss out on any of the funding to which they are entitled.
The impact of the worldwide recession on the UK jobs market means that it has never been harder to return to work, to change careers or to establish and successfully build your own business, especially if you have not been in education or work for some time, and are unfamiliar with the latest legislation, accreditation and training schemes. The Life Career Package helps to solve these problems often experienced by the 50+ age group, with a free limited version available to download to give the user the chance to see what an invaluable tool the Life Career Package can be.
