Independent job board, CV-Library has found that nearly two thirds of workers in London are losing up to 16 days a year commuting to and from work, with one in five commuting for up to four hours a day (making these the longest commutes in the UK!).
The survey of 1,200 workers sought to explore how professionals in London feel about their commute, and whether they are using it to their advantage.
Over three quarters of Londoners commute to work five days a week. In total 57.9 per cent of professionals say that they enjoy their commute.
But over two thirds would be willing to relocate to make their commute shorter.
Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, comments: “Unfortunately, commuting is often part of the job, especially for those living in bigger cities where inner-city housing can be expensive or in short supply. That said it’s alarming to learn that many professionals in the capital could be losing days, even weeks, each year to their commute, but at least some do appear to be enjoying it!”
