Crawley is ranked fifth in the country for job satisfaction

The average British worker can spend a fifth of every year feeling unhappy in their role, and even one in 10 new starters can feel unhappy in the first six months of a new job.

Unhappiness in the workplace isn't restricted to 9-5 - it has a knock-on effect on Britons' personal lives too.

Over a quarter (28%) admit they struggle to find enjoyment in other aspects of their lives due to feeling unhappy at work, while one in five (22%) have taken work frustrations out on their partners.

Providing workers with a clear sense of purpose and a space in which they can achieve most of their goals, whilst feeling supported, are the biggest drivers behind the happiness of workers.

Crawley Town Centre Bid manager Wendy Bell told ITV: "You can do pretty much what you want to here. We have a fantastic college, fantastic employers and there is something for everybody in Crawley."
