It is commonly assumed that one of the main reasons for women exiting the workplace is family reasons. However, research by recruitment firm Ambition UK has revealed that this is not the case.
The findings were announced at Ambition UK’s ‘Why do women in business leave?’ event in London last night. 486 women working in either professional services or financial services were surveyed. The professional service group included women working in accountancy, property, law and management consultancy sectors. They corresponded to 60% of the people polled. 40% of the women surveyed worked in financial services.
