Hi Tonie
There is no rule that says you cant get a job at 49. However having said that, at your age getting into a professionally run company looks very remote as they have their employment criteria and one of the important parameters is the age factor.
However there are many family run companies and growing set ups like builders and companies located in industrial belts that are a little away from the bigger cities who would be more than happy to hire someone with the right experience and someone who can be effective. What is essential is to justify your 2 year break and the rationale for them employing you at your age. Ideally go through a reference or meet the HR in person because sending the bio data means there is a high probability of it being trashed based on age criteria.
Be optimistic and approach the challenge with confidence.
Best Wishes

Dear Tonie,
Experience always counts. Age restriction can be in Government jobs but are not seen in companies, corporations, and non-profit organizations.
So, don't be discouraged.

Hi Tonie,
Yes, to a certain extent as there would be too many professionals competing for few positions at a senior level. However, if you are conceptually sound and have a proven experience - it should not be difficult. GOD BLESS.

Dear Senior
As a consultant i can assure you 49 is an acceptable age and to an extent a preferred age for some functions specially with project companies.
Some of the areas which can be a easy hunt for you are telecom project companies (TSP's), power n energy sector, manufacturing (plant admin n gen functions). These are favoured spots of retd ex-servicemen, re-employed category.
Your hunt also depends on your past professional experience, individual domain expertise and industry references.
