Research carried out by YouGov on behalf of the Good Work Commission measured a number of criteria to determine how happy people were in their current roles.
It found that almost two-thirds feel they are trusted to do a good job, with the same proportion saying they have a lot of control over how they carry out their duties.
Six out of ten believe that that their role gives them the chance to help other people, while 63 per cent say that their job is "very worthwhile".
Report co-author Stephen Bevan, from the Work Foundation, said the premise of the Good Work Commission is that a strong society is reliant on a strong economy, and in turn reliant on the availability of good work for its citizens.
"For the individuals, good work encompasses not only the pay and conditions that set the formal context within which they do their jobs, but also being engaged in something they feel is meaningful in their lives," he explained.
A recent survey carried out by Aaron Wallis Sales Recruitment found that 96 per cent of sales professionals enjoy working in the sector, despite many not initially planning a career in sales.
