New figures compiled by InterExec, the Confidential Agent for executives earning over &pound150k, have revealed that one in two headhunters think that over 50% of senior executives will continue to work after the age of 65-69.

The findings from the InterExec research, which surveyed more than 100 headhunters across the UK, also revealed that 4% of senior executives often lie about their age on their CV, with almost two-thirds (63%) admitting that they lie about their age when putting together their resum&eacute, but & lsquo;not often’.

“Given the removal of the default retirement age, what percentage of senior executives do you think will continue to work after 65-69?”

Kit Scott-Brown, managing director of InterExec, commented: “What is most important when employing someone at the top end of the career ladder is, I think, the skillset and wealth of experience that they are going to bring to the new role.  As long as the potential employee is in rude health, their age is to some extent incidental.  We are going to be seeing a lot more executives working after they hit 69 over the next decade or so, and I think employers need to be prepared for that.”
