Nearly one quarter of people leave their jobs because of low pay

Aira, a digital & inbound marketing agency, providing SEO, PPC, social media and content marketing services to companies all over the world, has worked with AppJobs to survey over 2,000 people in the UK to reveal their job-hopping habits

The survey found that the main reason people leave their jobs is due to low pay (22.8%), followed by too much stress (15.7%) and disliking management (12.5%).

It also found that Birmingham is the job-hopping capital with the average Brummie having had an impressive 24 jobs. Leeds ranks second at 23 jobs and London third with 21 jobs per person. Glaswegians have had an average of just 11 jobs in their working lifetime

The survey also identified that nearly one fifth (18%) of 16-24 year olds have had over 10 jobs so far in their working life. This is the same figure as 35-44 year olds (18%) and just 1% less than those over the age of 55 (19%)

In terms of preferred industries, the survey found that healthcare comes out as the most desirable industry to work in with one in 10 people choosing it. Retail came second and education came third in the most popular industries.
