Research carried out by Hays found that 67 per cent of the population would leave their current role immediately if they were offered a better role, such as a sales job, which offered better prospects.
In contrast, a third of staff who are not currently looking for a jobs are staying put because they believe it offers more security in a turbulent job market.
The poll found that 18 per cent of staff believe there are no jobs that require the skills they have, while 21 per cent believe they would not be able to find a better-paid position at the moment.
Charles Logan, director at Hays, said the survey highlights the contradicting opinions of UK workers when it comes to their job prospects and ambitions.
"Many sectors are still looking for talented staff and there is good demand for people. The onus is on job seekers to make sure they have the skills that are sought after by employers and can demonstrate that they are a solid investment," he added.
