“There can be good reasons to change career. Sometimes family commitment changes, other times skills become redundant or a worker can become jaded in their chosen employment. To change career involves making decisions that will affect the lifestyle of the worker and their close associates and family.
To change career from a sedentary type of job, where the worker is not asked for hard physical labor, to outdoor employment will need a health assessment. The worker should consider their ability before they change career. It could mean taking a course at the gym, or concentrating on becoming fitter before presenting themselves to a prospective employer. If there are underlying health reasons for not doing heavy lifting, stressful physical activity or spending long hours on their feet, the worker might look elsewhere for employment and a change in career.
