A SURVEY has revealed the career dreams Brits had as children.

Research carried out by beabetteryoucourses.co.uk reveals that 72 per cent of Brits dreamof fighting crime or saving lives by joining the emergency services.

Meanwhile 69 per cent aspired to become a celebrity superstar by working in the entertainment industry.

Another 64 per cent of adults admitted to having hoped for an office job. Other top ten career aspirations included the armed forces and healthcare.

However, despite having aspired to embark on the career path of their dreams, 59 per cent of Brits are not passionate about the job they currently do. Meanwhile a further one in four have no genuine interest in the current job they do. And just one ten people surveyed said they had ended up in a career that they had dreamt of as children.

Simon Bubb, managing director of the firm, said: “It’s surprising to see that so many workers are choosing to remain in a role which they have no genuine passion or interest in.”

The research found that many Brits don’t make a decision about their career until as late as 30. However 64 per cent of them had decided what path to take between the ages of 18 and 21.

Bubb said: “For those how are looking to make a career change, or who are yet to make a decision about the path they want to follow, our advice would be to take advantage of the support services available to you and do your research.”
