UK tech workers are losing faith in the idea that they will be able to land their dream job.
That’s according to a new report which reveals that UK tech workers believe it far less likely that they will be able to get their dream job.
The Hired Global Employment Study shows that 58 percent of UK tech workers believe that it would be possible to get their dream job, which shows a significant drop of 12 percent from the global average of 70 percent.
The report said that a small percent, 35 percent of respondents said that they had achieved their dream job.
It was also found that the gender gap between respondents who love their jobs is especially significant in the UK, as male respondents are more likely to love their jobs than females particularly in technology, healthcare and engineering.

Although, in comparison to workers in the US and Australia, UK tech workers are twice as likely to hate their job.
This then results in 41 percent of UK tech workers saying that they are already looking for their next job, compared to only 30 percent in the US.
The rise of tech jobs has risen over the past year, as many companies take the opportunity to open more jobs in their UK branches for a wider offering.
For instance, at the start of 2017, food delivery company Deliveroo revealed its plans to hire over 300 people at its London office. The jobs are to be spread across a range of vacancies such as Software engineering and Algorithm development.
The report also discovered that people who love their jobs are more likely to list intrinsic motivators, such as feeling challenged or interested in their work as factors which are most important to their happiness.
“Women are less likely than men to say they lover their jobs- but for many women stuck between loving and hating their current job (and report it’s just “ok”), pay is less of a factor than other job attributes when it comes to sticking with or leaving a position,” said the report.
For women particularly, a recent survey conducted by Robert Walters and Jobsite found that 76 percent of women in the UK Tech industry believe that the opportunity to work remotely is essential, with other factors such as remote working and career progression listed as top priorities when looking for a job.
The research by Hired Global Employment Study and Harris Poll was conducted among 2,557 full-time employed adults aged 18 and over in UK, US and Australia.
