Happy Valentines from Retired4Hire

Dear #NAME#, 
Happy Valentines from Chris, Hagen and Louise!

We hope you have a great day, and spend it with someone special. We wanted to check in with another monthly update and see how you’re getting on with our site? If there’s anything you need help with or you’d like to suggest to us, just pop an email over to hello@retired4hire.co.uk

Perhaps now you’re retied your priorities may have changed, and you’re looking for employment that is flexible, casual, or in addition to your existing work. Retired4Hire is set up exactly with you in mind – so make sure your profile is up to date with all your skills, a little ‘welcome’ note for potential readers, and of course a picture. We find it makes a big difference to your success rate if you include a pic, so don’t be shy! Let’s avoid too many blind dates…


Happy Valentines, Chris, Hagen and Louise

non-profit organisation for retired people – can your library help?


Hope you’re well.

I work for Retired4Hire and we’ve created a not-for-profit website to help retired people stay connected to their community, and earn extra income (see below for full details).

We’ve been featured in Mature Times and have had great feedback from our users so far. Our local libraries have been very supportive, and we’re now looking to reach a wider community of retired people across the UK.

If we sent you a small poster would you be happy to put it on your notice board or in reception? We’d really appreciate the support!

Best wishes,
Louise Croft


A little more about the site:

  • Retired people can create a profile for themselves listing their skills for sale e.g. gardening, photography, or translation. Then anyone can list a task they want doing, such as teaching them piano or helping with their tax return. The aim is to connect the two parties and help retired people earn money and meet local people.
  • It’s free for everyone
  • Local people may also uncover new skills they didn’t have time to develop in earlier life. For example, one of our users was a policeman who always wanted to be a jeweller and has now retrained and earns through our site.
