British workers are among the happiest in Europe, with job satisfaction rising sharply, according to an international study.
Brits are the second-most satisfied group of the four major European economies, as the economic recovery drives more opportunities for new roles and career progress.
In the poll 69% of Britons claiming fulfilment in their work environment, trailing only the Germans’ 71%. The French came in third with 66%, and the Italians fourth at 64%.
The surveys also revealed that job satisfaction in the UK has increased greatly since the start of 2010, when levels were just 62%, trailing the other three major economies.
The UK’s seven point jump in satisfaction was the largest increase of the group, with the Germans’ job satisfaction increasing six points, French satisfaction increasing by two points, and the Italians staying put.
