The good, the bad and the ugly - career pinch points for women in their 30s

March 1, 2013 | comments

In my last blog we looked at the challenges and needs of UK women in their 20s, some really clear messages emerging on what women are looking for relatively early on in their careers. Given the interest shown I thought I’d share how the trends evolve for women in the 30s and what is standing out for that population.  As a reminder this is from our research published in November 2012, a study of over 2500 UK business women across 17 different industry sectors.

Career Pinch Points

I’m preparing for the forthcoming breakfast briefing to share our latest “Career Pinch Points” research and it is making me realise just how excited I am about the next 12 months here at Talking Talent. The leading research findings from over 2,500 women tell us some of what we all already know around the major challenges that women face as they progress through their careers but there are also some really important new insights into what will help facilitate change.
