Research carried out by Train4Trade Skills shows that 28 per cent are not satisfied with their current job and only one in four have no plans to change their career over the next five years.
The research, carried out among 1,200 British employees, also discovered that just 39 per cent of staff are in their ideal job.
Overall, 64 per cent of UK employees believe a decent salary is key to career satisfaction, with 59 per cent valuing a sense of achievement in their work and 46 per cent wanting flexible working hours.
Interestingly, not every worker thinks salaries equate to greater job satisfaction, with only 24 per cent of those earning between £25,000 and £29,999 dissatisfied in their job, compared to 27 per cent who earn between £35,000 and £49,999.
Mike Head, a spokesman for the organisation, said that while pay is deemed important, it is interesting to see that big salaries do not always equal career satisfaction.
"People are looking for flexible hours and doing work they enjoy and are keen to find a career that offers these benefits," he added.
It comes after a new poll of 700 workers by Hays recently found that almost half of those in sales jobs and other roles believe salaries are not as competitive at SMEs as larger firms, while 55 per cent think smaller businesses cannot offer as many benefits.
