Female students worried about work life balance already

Family, shared parental leave, working families

 

Over 40 per cent of female students from top universities in the UK are already worried about how they will balance work and a family in the future, according to new research.

The study, by graduate careers consultancy the Bright Network, found 80% of women students said they were worried about their job prospects on entering the employment market and had lower earning expectations than men. They said they were looking for a starting salary of £27,627 compared to £32,751 for male students.

Seventy per cent did not consider themselves confident and a third of these said they were worried about being seen as overambitious.

James Uffindell of the Bright Network said: “As we find women are more worried about getting a job once they graduate, we find they are engaging with employers earlier in an effort to secure internships and work experience. Large graduate recruiters in the legal, finance and consulting sector offer more of these placements which means women are tending to increasingly go into these professions.”
