Christine Sideris shares her advice for mature aged job seekers


The “great resignation” phenomenon brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic has seen a number of industries such as healthcare, cleaning and hospitality, welcoming more mature aged job seekers.

One of these workers is 60-year-old disability support worker, Christine Sideris, who changed careers later in life.

In an interview with The Advertiser, Christine detailed how she was forced to give up her dream of being a hairdresser after suffering a debilitating shoulder injury as a retail worker in 1991.

Christine has taken on a role as an allied health worker at disability service provider .

She found work as a school services officer but 12 years later resigned to care for her sick father full-time.

Now 60, Christine has taken on a role as an allied health worker at disability service provider HenderCare in May.

“I feel fulfilled because I know I’m giving back to the community,” she told the newspaper. “You’re never too old and if you believe in yourself everything and anything is possible.”
