A survey carried out by Monster suggests that over a quarter of staff are currently searching for new jobs, including sales recruitment positions, for three hours a week or more while at the office.
Overall, 50 per cent of over 2,000 workers surveyed said they spend time updating their CV at work, while 39 per cent have attended a job interview during working hours.
Isabelle Ratinaud, spokesperson for Monster UK & Ireland, said that looking for a new role is time consuming, which could lead many people to consider using the services of a recruitment agency.
"People are clearly so desperate to move that they will spend hours looking and applying for roles while they're supposed to be doing their current job," she added.
It comes after Alice Snell, vice-president of research at Taleo, said workers are beginning to seek new challenges in 2011 as the slight upturn in the economy and better job prospects highlight the potential for advancement.
