The most satisfying jobs in 2023

Are you one of the 70% of workers currently thinking about a career change? Are you finally deciding that jobs with purpose are more rewarding than a hefty salary but no work-life balance? Maybe you want a promotion or a pay rise?


Finding a new job can be stressful when many companies post the same role but ask for different requirements. This stress isn't made any more manageable if you are thinking about what other jobs you could do with your skills. Seriously, where do you even start?


Well, one place you could look is the list of the best jobs in the UK.


Glassdoor, the anonymous employee review site, formulates the list. It takes into account how much you could potentially earn in the role, based on a median annual base salary for the position, the job satisfaction rating from current employees and the number of job opportunities for that role available now.


Is your job already on the list? Excellent work; you're on your way. If it's not, and you're feeling like a change in direction, why not jump into clu and see if you have the same skills needed to career switch into one of the best places to work for job satisfaction?


The word 'manager' comes up quite often, so if that doesn't apply to you just yet, do not fear; use the list as a source of inspiration for the future you, instead.
