The jobs which come out top are:
- Chief executives and senior officials
- Agriculture/horticulture managers and proprietors
- Company secretaries
- Quality assurance/regulatory professionals
Also happier at work than most are; doctors, farmers, hotel managers and fitness instructors.
On the other hand the jobs which rank the worst are:
- Elementary construction workers
- Debt/rent collectors
- Industrial cleaners
- Floorers and tilers
However, call centre workers, bar staff, ambulance drivers and window cleaners aren't thrilled by the prospect of going to work in the morning either.
If you want to see where your job ranks then the BBC has published a copy of the full table of results.
Generally there's a correlation between high levels of job satisfaction and high salaries, but this is not always the case, for example secretaries have an average salary of £18,176 but rank as the 4th most satisfied in their jobs. Similarly farmers earn an average of £24,520 a year but are, according to the survey, very happy in their jobs, coming out 8th. On the other hand, quantity surveyors have a high average salary of £38,855 but rank 234th out of 274, making them the 41st most unsatisfied workers polled.
The Government eventually wants to produce a kind of "job calculator" so that people can assess more than just their potential salaries when deciding on the career they want to pursue.
