Jobs to make you happy

IT’S International Happiness at Work Week and a list has been published of the top jobs that people are happiest in and stay in the longest.

It was pulled together by job search engine Adzuna.
Co founder Andrew Hunter said: “Sometimes life can get in the way and changes in circumstance can inevitably force people to move on quicker than expected, but this data gives job hunters a good outline of the roles that have the most longevity.
“In terms of what employers can do to create the best possible working environment for staff, it’s clear from what YouGov can show us that while monetary benefits can help, it’s opportunities for development and progression, as well as a good work/life balance that make people more inclined to stick around.”<\!p>
