Graduate jobseekers hoping to start a brand new career should chose carefully - more than a fifth of workers are unhappy at work.

The Happiness at Work Index, by Badenoch & Clark charts the job satisfaction of office employees across the country.

And 21 per cent of workers are unhappy in their current job with a further 51 per cent are on the lookout for better employment.

Explaining the Index findings, Neil Wilson at Badenoch & Clark said: "There is a huge portion of UK workers who are currently seeking alternative employment and this desire to leave an organisation has a huge impact on their current employer."

In a warning to employers he added: "Workers looking for new employment are often likely to be job-searching whilst at work, meaning they are less productive and disengaged in their day-to-day job."

In a testament to the draw of a higher salary, more than three-quarters (77 per cent) of respondents claimed that more money was the biggest attraction of moving job.ADNFCR-1068-ID-18275496-ADNFCR
