Train4TradeSkills release Jobs survey: What it means for Scotland

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 Scotland:

• Workers in Scotland rate job enjoyment ahead of salary

• Only 16% of workers in Scotland agree they are happy with their current job

• Leisure and hospitality is the most satisfying sector to work in: but retail is the least

London, UK – 18 November 2011 – A study into the career satisfaction of British workers reveals that 28% 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 research, carried out among 1,200 British workers and commissioned by Train4TradeSkills, also reveals that working in Scotland appears to be better than the majority of British regions, with Scotland coming fourth out of eleven in the Train4TradeSkills career satisfaction regional league table.
