In the run up to the festive period, everyone’s spirits are up as they look forward to a much-needed break over the holidays.

A survey carried out by Workwear Express reveals how happy employees really are. The research shows that just under 35 per cent say that they are happy at work, with only 14 per cent say that they plan to stay in their current job for the next year.

More worryingly, just under 39 per cent of Brits admit that they feel miserable at work and this appears to be reflected in the amount of sickness that employees take, with 25 per cent admitting that they’ve taken sick leave from work due to being so unhappy.

But what are the most miserable jobs to work in? The survey ranks the top ten:

Call centre adviser – 29 per cent

Accountant – 18 per cent

Bin man – 15 per cent

Cleaner – 14 per cent

Banker – 9 per cent

Waiting staff – 7 per cent

Army officer – 7 per cent

Shop assistant – 6 per cent

Social worker – 5 per cent

Doctor’s receptionist – 4 per cent
