In addition, a third said they believe they have been rejected for a job because of their age.

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, said: "Diversity is a hot topic at the moment, and it is something that should be celebrated in the workplace.

"Sadly, there is clearly still a great amount of discrimination amongst those considered to be ‘too old’ or ‘too young’ to work in certain positions. As a nation, we need to address this issue head on, and consider ways in which we can remove these stigmas."
