Research conducted into the satisfaction of worker in the UK has found that 28% are unhappy in their current role. The poll, carried out among 1,200 British workers, also discovered that only 39% are in their ideal job.
Despite so many people being disgruntled in their position, only one in four are willing to look for career opportunities elsewhere.
Mike Head of Train4TradeSkills, said the upheaval of retraining and changing careers can be a challenge for many workers, which is putting people off relocating.
British workers also revealed that a good wage is what they feel is the key to happiness at work, with two-thirds citing high wages as a source of happiness at work.
However, workers in the leisure and hospitality industry are some of the most satisfied in the UK, despite having some of the lowest average wages.
