Women in Liverpool work 1,626 hours more than the rest of the female workforce in the UK, according to research by online beauty company blowLTD.

The research identified the locations in which women work the most hours, and found that women in London work 75 more hours than the rest of the UK’s female workforce, whilst women in Scotland work 70 hours more.

Record

The findings also highlighted the different ages of females working the most hours, with 22-29 year olds working 136 hours more than the rest of the UK.

Women aged 30-39 were found to work 1,631 hours a year on average more than the rest of the UK’s female workforce, whilst women aged between 40-49 work 42 hours less than the average working female in the UK.

The research comes after figures showed that the number of women in employment reached 14.6 million by the end of 2015, which was a record high.

Pressure

Commenting on the research, blowLTD co-founder Fiona McIntosh said that it “highlights the levels of time poverty faced by working women across the UK.”

She added that there are more women in work than ever before, and that women such as Millennials and working mums are putting in significant hours.

McIntosh went on to discuss why blowLTD was created, stating that there is a pressure on women to look well-groomed, and that the company’s service can help busy women to “look and feel great fast.”

The company recently announced that it will be partnering with crowdfunding platform Seedrs to create a fundraising scheme that will enable the business to grow.
