I recently had a poster accepted for an international conference. The conference is a major one in its field and only held every 4 years. As I recently changed jobs and no longer work directly in the field I will have to self-fund to attend. 


What are people's opinions on the value of attending conferences when you are only presenting a poster?

You're on the right track - the objective is not to present the poster per se but to further your career.    Considering your career aspirations, who will be in audience/present at meeting for your to contact who can further your career.  Also investigate potential to wrtie off the travel and meeting expenses.

I agree, plus if it is a major conference and rarely held then presenting a poster will look good on your academic CV too.

Il dort. Quoique le sort fût pour lui bien étrange,
Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.
