The Most Desirable Jobs In Britain…Posted: 7th of April 2015 by
If you had to guess what the most-desirable jobs in Britain are, you might start thinking of something like being a movie actor, chart-topping musician, or maybe a professional footballer. These type of jobs have the glamour, fame, and money that many people see as desirable, but the reality of what jobs people want most is quite different!
A recent YouGov poll asked respondents which jobs they would like most, and it seems that most people would ideally prefer he quiet life. 60% of respondents agreed that they would love to be an author, while 54% stated that they would happily work as a librarian.
In fact, it seems that there are very few people who wouldn’t like to be an author, as it ranked as the lowest when it came to jobs that people definitely not like to do – with just 34% expressing a dislike for the job.
Other highly desirable jobs included being an academic (with 51% of the vote), lawyer (43%), interior designer (41%) and journalist (with 39%).
The chance of being an Olympic athlete returned just 31% of the vote, which is the same as other roles such as becoming an MP or even a Hollywood movie star!
While the results seemed to show a desire for more relaxed roles, often with a creative edge, there was also a difference between men and women. Women were shown to be 21% more likely to want to turn their hands to interior design, while men were 28% more likely to want to follow up on boyhood dreams of being a train driver!
How about you? What is your dream job – do you agree with the poll and also have a desire to be an author? What about getting a job at your local library? Or do would you prefer something a little livelier?
