The dream job – what’s it all about anyway?!

We all talk about our dream job and, apparently, one in three workers feel they’re already working in their dream job. But with so many different views on what constitutes a role worthy of this mighty title, we thought it would be interesting to review the common denominators.


According to a recent poll published by LinkedIn, there’s consensus among workers on a few core components of the dream job, as follows:


– a 21-30 hour working week

– a salary of £44,355 per year

– 29 days annual holiday per year

– a commute of between 16 and 20 minutes

– a supportive boss


The survey found that regular pay rises, a tidy work environment and casual office wear are important contributing factors too.


Interesting food for thought? In your experience, is this what candidates look for most at interview? We’re wondering what happened to flexible working, a superb benefits package and an alignment between personal and company goals in the equation. Do you think the poll may have missed something too?
