The aim of the project is to explore existing mobility patterns (shift of jobs/careers) among older workers (50+), and analyse preconditions for sucsessful transitions (mobility).

It is increasingly recognised that the ability of individuals to work into older age may require some form of job movement. Individuals may need to move jobs because they find themselves out of work, or because the work they do is no longer suitable for them.

The need for more knowledge on these issues was also stated by all main stakeholders taking part in our pre-project workshops in May and June 2015.

The aim of the project is to explore existing mobility patterns (shift of jobs/careers) among older workers (50+), and analyse preconditions for sucsessful transitions (mobility).

We have a mixed-method approach, combining register and survey analyses with qualitative case studies and life course analyses. This allows us to analyse mobility for older workers (50 +) and study different sequences in late careers.

To supplement the Norwegian perspective and experiences, and to see how different cultural, legislative and regulative contexts affect recruitment, mobility and late careers, the project will be carried out in collaboration with researchers from the UK.
