1. Adjunct teacher

Take the knowledge you gained on the job and share it with students as an adjunct teacher at a school. The hours are flexible and you’ll have the holidays off.

2. Farming

This is a very lucrative and easy job a retiree can venture into. You can be a poultry, catfish, snail or piggery farmer. You can also own a cassava, yam or vegetable farm. Have labourers do this while you supervise. Just choose anyone that you have interest in and expand with the help of few workers.

3. Consultant

Depending on your field, you may choose to consult for your past organization or others on a project basis. Before you officially retire, put out word that you’ll be consulting, and check out UpWork to find potential leads.

4. Crafter

Working in retirement doesn’t have to mean less time for your hobbies. Instead, look for a way to combine your hobbies and some income. You can sell your crafts on Etsy, or give music or other kinds of skill-based lessons.

5. Volunteer

If you’re working more to keep busy than for financial reasons, becoming a volunteer can have rewards that go far beyond a paycheck. Statistics, has shown that persons over age 65 spent nearly twice as many hours volunteering as any other age group last year.

6. Babysit

Whether you’re watching your own grandchildren (an increasingly common occurrence among retirees) or someone else’s kids, babysitting can be a great gig for retirees who like kids.

7. Real Estates

Dealing on properties has always been profitable and not much of stress is involved. It is unimportant whether you deal with shopping centers or mansions. Around the world, a lot of markets are over-saturated. But as an African, one has tremendous opportunity for growth. In Nigeria for example, according to experts, this is a period of rapid expansion. So you should use your chance.
