Extending Working Lives: research project on transitions from work to retirement

by on September 24, 2014

Extending Working Lives is a research project headed up by Professor Sarah Vickerstaff at the University of Kent. The project team features experienced researchers from a number of academic institutions around the UK, including Professor Wendy Loretto at the University of Edinburgh and Dr Joanne Crawford at the Institute of Occupational Medicine and IOM Consulting, both of whom we met up with at the Gender and Later Working Life stream at the GWO conference this summer.

The new project website is available via this link. We’ve also added a link to their website on the home page of this blog.

There’s a current vacancy for a research fellow to work on the project too.

The study will examine the various transitions from work to retirement which have undergone radical transformation over the past few decades.The aim is to contribute to knowledge about the processes and factors which exert influence on working in later life with the aim of enhancing policy development and employer practice.

We very much look forward to following their research.
