The Best Jobs in the UK

Audit Managers have taken the top spot on a list of the best jobs in Britain. Last week, Glassdoor revealed its annual jobs report, which takes a jobs earning potential, satisfaction rating and the number of openings in order to deduce the roles we’re most likely to be happiest in.

In a list of 25, the role of Audit Manager has leapt up 2 spots from last year, where it took third place. The roles progression is largely in part due to the increase in job openings, which have gone from 420 to 1,124. Job Satisfaction scores also saw an increase, going from 4.3 to 4.5 out of 5, however this is a surprising jump, considering the median wage has actually decreased from £55,000 to £52,000, suggesting that, as has been theorized in the past, money isn’t everything when it comes to happiness at work.
