Edge Case Study

Edge Case Study

Returning to the workforce after a career break can be challenging for anyone, but it can be particularly daunting for mature aged workers. Whether you took time off to care for a family member, travel, pursue new interests, or just decided to stop working full time, it’s common to feel anxious about your chances of finding a job that meets your needs and keeps you engaged.

At Montgomery Edge, we understand the concerns that workers at any age have when considering a return to the workforce. We’ve worked with many professionals over the years who have taken career breaks for various reasons, and we’ve helped them navigate the job market and find rewarding and exciting contract roles.

One of the most common concerns that mature workers have is whether their skills are still relevant. It’s understandable to feel this way, especially if you’ve been out of the workforce for an extended period. However, it’s essential to remember that many employers value the experience and knowledge that you can immediately bring to the table. Your skills may need some updating, but with the right mindset and training, you can quickly get back up to speed.

Another concern is whether they’ll be considered in such a competitive job market. The truth is that ageism can exist in the workforce, but more importantly, there are many employers who recognize the value of hiring workers that can bring immediate value to their business. With a bit of perseverance and initiative, you can find plenty of job opportunities that are well-suited to your skills and experience.

One of the best ways we find to ease your transition back into the workforce is by taking up shorter-term contracts or temporary based roles. These roles allow you to gain experience, build your network, and try out different types of work, without committing to a permanent role. Additionally, many employers are increasingly seeking contract workers to meet their immediate project needs, so there’s plenty of demand for skilled professionals.

At Montgomery Edge, we specialise in helping lawyers find contract and permanent roles that are well-suited to their needs and interests. We understand that returning to the workforce can be challenging, but we’re here to support you every step of the way. Whether you need help updating your resume, preparing for an interview, or finding the right job opportunities, we’re here to help.
