Workers content with pay cut for dream job

Published: August 16, 2016

Many workers would be willing to take a pay cut if it secured them their dream job reveals a new survey.

CV-Library found a total of 81.9 per cent of British employees would endure a fall in salary to get their ideal position.  

The poll of 2,000 people found the majority (73.3 per cent) are keen to find a job that offers good opportunities for progression and development. Job title was also important for 51.9 per cent of people, with 31.7 per cent admitting they would be more interested in a position if it had manager in the title.

However, more than 50 per cent said they would be unwilling to relocate for a job, even if the job title was attractive.

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, said: “In today’s economic climate, it’s important that businesses understand what candidates want from the world of work.

“Our research indicates just how seriously candidates take their job hunt, and helps employers identify key priorities so that they can pull out all the stops to accommodate new recruits and attract the very best talent.”

He added offering good salaries, as well as attractive workplace benefits would ensure the right quality of candidates.
