Majority of staff in Northern Ireland happy in their job


More than three-quarters of workers in Northern Ireland feel secure in their job and two-thirds are satisfied in their role, according to a new survey.

The REED Local Salary and Market Insight report polled 1,500 employers and employees across the UK.

However only 17% are confident that the local labour market can create jobs and boost the economy, resulting in a high level of workers looking to move roles (41%) in the next 12 months, which is only just behind the national average of 43%.

Around 63% of employers are concerned over losing talent from their organisation, but only 24% of workers received a payrise in the last 12 months compared to a national average of 32%.
