Rachel Morgan-Trimmer, founder of thecareerbreaksite.com, said the career break market has been growing over the past five to ten years, with the core of the market being in their late 20s or early 30s.
According to the expert, the average age for a career breaker is shorter than the average gap year - around six months – and she said that those who have the opportunity to do it but fail to do so could regret it.
"Often they want to give something back or see the world, but most of the time it's for a change. People do change when they are on a career break. They come back not just with new skills, but they also find they develop confidence," Ms Morgan-Trimmer explained.
It is also a chance to assess their priorities, as a lot of people change careers after taking a break, with some people becoming more generous and laid back.
