Kevin Green, chief executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, said there is a "growing aspiration for more flexible working" as young people enter the employment market with different views to the traditional 9 to 5 office-based job.
This desire is likely to create "huge issues" for employers in the near future, however, not just in terms of attracting sales recruitment candidates, but also retaining them.
"Employers are going to have to think about how they engage people, how they employ them, the different types of contractual relationships they put in place, and how they retain that talent going forward," Mr Green said.
It comes after a survey by Mom Corps found that 42 per cent of working adults are willing to give up some percentage of their salary for more flexibility at work.
The survey found that working men (12 per cent) are twice as likely as working women to say they would be willing to give up more than ten per cent of their salary to receive more flexibility.
