The study, carried out by uSwitch.com, shows that 77 per cent of staff have given up on the prospect of landing their dream job, though more than half say that the most important thing about an occupation is that it is enjoyable.
The report suggests that the reality for many people is that their dream job is not actually what it turned out to be, or simply impractical as far as fitting in with their personal circumstances and requirements is concerned.
Of those who have had the opportunity to land their dream job, 28 per cent let it pass, with the main reason being that the salary was not high enough, family reasons, or a lack of job security.
Commenting on the findings, Michael Ossei, personal finance expert at uSwitch.com, said: "When weighing up the benefits of doing something you love compared with financial and job security, Brits are taking a very pragmatic approach - we’re ditching our dreams and plumping for security."
