Many chief executives 'want change in direction through second career'

Almost a third of company executives are likely to consider a career change in the next five years, research shows.

A survey of more than 900 senior staff by restaurant giant McDonald's found that many were not fulfilling their ambitions or complained about not having time to spend with their family and friends.

Half of those polled said they would consider a new job to have a better work/life balance.

Jason Clark, McDonald's vice president for franchising, said: "At a time when certain macroeconomic trends are causing uncertainty in business, many chief executives want a change in direction - a second career."
