Women are more likely to continue working in their 70s than men, according to research by Nationwide.
A study of 2,000 Brits in their 70s revealed that more than a fifth of women do part-time or occasional work, while another fifth work full time. That means more than four in 10 women in the age group have a job, compared to about a third of men.
While men are more likely to hold full-time employment in their 70s, (23%) they’re also more prone to completely leave work when they retire. Only one in seven takes on a part-time role.
The research reveals that women are increasingly likely to return to work after retirement because they enjoy the social side of a job, rather than for financial reasons. One woman retired as a PA but returned to work two years later. Nationwide’s own Jo Bankes still holds a full-time position at the company at the age of 73, according to an article from The Daily Mail.
