Researchers at the Australian National University, led by Dr Liana Leach, found that people in jobs with high levels of stress which they do not enjoy are less likely to have a positive mental state, even compared with people who have no job whatsoever.
"Our work found that people in poor quality jobs - jobs which were insecure, did not provide future job prospects or had high levels of strain - had no better mental health than people who were unemployed," she explained.
Dr Leach noted that people in the sales recruitment industry and other sectors who received support from their mangers and were rewarded for good work were far more likely to have positive state of mind.
It comes after data issued by the Office for National Statistics shows that the employment rate for those aged between 16 and 64 was 70.7 per cent between June and August, up 0.2 per cent on the quarter.
