How to Find a Job You Love

Career Resources

It’s often said that money can’t buy happiness or love, and for the majority of people working in the UK that’s true. A recent survey of UK professionals showed that twice as many workers believe that a job they enjoy is a better measure of career success (83%) than having a high salary (42%). 

When asked to share how they measure career success, the top five responses to the survey were: 

  • Enjoying what you do – 83.6%
  • Being proud of what you’ve achieved – 73.8%
  • Doing a job that makes a real difference to people’s lives – 57.1%
  • Working for a company you love – 54.2%
  • Earning a high salary – 42.4%

Putting your happiness and wellbeing ahead of financial incentives or how others perceive your achievements is a growing trend amongst younger demographics, and is being reflected in how companies are responding with wellbeing programmes and improved HR departments. 

Job satisfaction is rated highly amongst all age groups, industries and sectors as a marker of success – but how many people are actually satisfied? If you are looking for a new role, a new company or even a whole new career path we can help you.
