The happy chappies in retail

A study of 2,000 working professionals has revealed that life in retail is indeed a happy one, rating in the top ten industries in which workers are some of the happiest in the UK.

The survey by independent job board CV-Library showed that while a total of 56.7% of Britons enjoy their job, amongst retail professionals that figure rises to 67.6%.

The industry may not be top of the survey list, but it does rate in 5th place – not an insignificant achievement.

The top 10 list includes:

  • Sales – 72.7%
  • Automotive – 70.7%
  • Recruitment – 70%
  • Design – 69.2%
  • Retail – 67.6%
  • IT – 66.7%
  • Marketing 63.6%
  • Finance – 61.7%
  • Customer Service – 60.8%
  • Property – 60%

Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library, (profoundly!) said: “Happiness is at the heart of most aspects in life and the findings got me thinking about an article I read once which really resonated with me: it said that success isn’t the key to happiness, it’s happiness that’s the key to success.”
