  • Temporary work risking young worker's mental health

A joint study from the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) and Business in the Community has found that younger workers (those born after 1982) in temporary roles are 29% more likely to experience mental health issues than those on permanent contracts. The research found that the chances of experiencing mental health issues increases further to 43% for young people in part-time roles. 

The study also found that more than one in five graduates in this age group who work in jobs they are overqualified for reported feeling anxious or depressed, compared to only 16% of those in professional or managerial roles.
