Managing Retirement and Extended Working Lives Resource Guide

Managing Retirement and Extended Working Lives: resource guide


This resource guide was designed as a wiki guide, to enable practitioners to follow links and download resources.  This is an ongoing resource, to which we hope collegues in the higher education sector will contribute further case

A shortened print version of this guide (pdf) has been published with support from the Equality Challenge Unit.


This guide results from two projects funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England’s Leadership Governance and Management Fund. Both projects were led by the Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice, Oxford Brookes University, and the second was undertaken with support from the Equality Challenge Unit.

The project team wish to thank all those working in UK universities and higher education colleges who contributed their knowledge and experience to this work. In addition we wish to thank all the members of the project advisory group for contributing their expertise to this project:

Seth Atkin, Equality Official, University and College Union (UCU)

Dr. Diane Bebbington, Diversity Adviser, Leadership Foundation for Higher Education

Denise Bertuchi, National Officer, UNISON

Ian Cheetham, Director of Human Resources, University of Bath and representative of Universities Human Resources (UHR)

Chris Hall, Head of Stakeholder Relations and Communication, Equality Challenge Unit

Bob Price, Director of Human Resources, Oxford Brookes University

Paula Shelley, Senior HR Advisor, Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA)

The guide was compiled by Caroline Moughton and Simonetta Manfredi.  Some of the case studies were researched and written by Erica Halvorsen. The legal section was contributed by Professor Lucy Vickers, Oxford Brookes University. The cartoons were drawn by Bob Pomfret and the print guide was designed by Jayne Stuart, both of Oxford Brookes University.
