As we approach the end of the year, a time when many professionals begin to get itchy feet about their jobs, new research from CV-Library reveals that over a third (39.7%) of Brits confess to disliking their current job.

The leading job site conducted a survey of 1,100 workers, to find out how many people enjoyed their role and found that almost two thirds (63.2%) of those who dislike their job think about quitting every day. What’s more, the survey uncovered the areas across the UK where professionals disliked their jobs the most:

  1. Sheffield – 56.7% dislike their current job
  2. Liverpool – 51.6% dislike their current job
  3. Brighton – 50% dislike their current job
  4. Bristol – 48% dislike their current job
  5. Southampton – 47.1% dislike their current job
  6. Newcastle – 44.4% dislike their current job
  7. Nottingham – 42.9% dislike their current job
  8. Manchester – 41.9% dislike their current job
  9. Bournemouth – 41% dislike their current job
  10. Edinburgh – 40.6% dislike their current job

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, comments: “As we approach the end of the year, many workers begin to consider whether it’s time for a career change, perhaps even making work-based resolutions for the year ahead. While this can be beneficial for businesses, for example if an employee’s career goals are to exceed their targets or to gain a promotion in their current workplace, it can also have a negative impact if your employees are planning on finding a new job, elsewhere.”

The survey also sought to understand why workers were so unhappy in their current roles, identifying the main cause as feeling undervalued (48.8%). Other reasons include not being in the role they want (47.9%), working at a company with a poor culture (34.8%), being underpaid (29.3%) and being bored at work (28.6%).
