Train4TradeSkills release Jobs survey for the Midlands

Train4TradeSkills today launched it’s National Job Survey to look at employment in the UK and the career satisfaction of British Workers.

Here’s what the study found for the Midlands:

London, UK – 17 November 2011 – A study into the career satisfaction of British workers has revealed the West Midlands is a region of job-lovers, with 79% agreeing they are satisfied in their current job. The region tops the list of the most satisfying areas to work in Britain, alongside the South West. In contrast, the East Midlands languishes at the bottom of the career satisfaction league table, with two thirds of workers agreeing they are satisfied with their job.

The research, carried out among 1,200 British workers and commissioned by Train4TradeSkills, reveals that overall, 7.9m* are not satisfied with their current job and only one in four have no plans to change their career in the next five years. The study also reveals that a decent salary is key to career satisfaction, cited by 64%, as well as a sense of achievement in your work (59%) and being able to work the hours you want (46%).

However, better salaries don’t always equal greater job satisfaction; only 24% of those earning £25,000 – £29,999 are dissatisfied in their job, compared to 27% earning between £35,000 and £49,999. Workers in leisure and hospitality are some of the most satisfied, alongside those in manufacturing and IT. In contrast, fewer people in the retail and transportation sectors could say they are very satisfied in their job.
