Mature Workers Seeking Employment

Reaching “retirement age” doesn’t always mean “ready for retirement.” As Americans live longer and participate in the interests they have always enjoyed, our concept of retirement has changed. Many people 55 + choose to continue working past traditional retirement age simply because they love to work, love to be active and love to be involved. Others seek employment because of economic necessity. The Senior Employment Program can help mature workers find paid employment in a variety of business and in-home placements. The program is tailored specifically to jobseekers age 55+, and is recognized throughout Sedgwick County as a valuable resource for employers seeking mature workers and the skills, reliability and experience they bring with them. Senior Employment provides job referrals in business, industry and in-home care placements. The program is consistently regarded as one of the top placement programs by the Wichita Business Journal.

Prefer working for an individual or family instead of a large corporation? Then In-Home Support Services is for you! Click here to learn more.
