Brits happy 'not to have dream job'
Despite not having their dream job, most Britons are content with the work they currently do, results of a new survey show.

Research from fish4jobs found that although 86 per cent of people in the UK are not doing what they aspired to when they were younger they would not consider retraining now, Recruiter reports.

For 22 per cent of these, this meant being a famous actor, singer or TV presenter. Around 24 per cent wanted to be a professional sports person and 10 per cent wanted to work in the police force.

Joe Slavin, chief executive at fish4jobs said: "It's really interesting to see the transition from our childhood dreams to adult reality.

"People end up quitting college and their dreams to pursue something different and often more stable," he added.

Recruiter also reported that although they do not want to retrain for another career, many Brits are keen to develop their current skills in case of redundancies in the future, the Association of Colleges found.
