How far would you commute for your dream job?


We were surprised with research, recently published by job board, that revealed 45% of us in the UK would not travel more than 30 minutes for our dream career!

To us at RTA, where the majority of our commutes are over 30 minutes, this sounds like a lack of drive and ambition! While everyone would love to live round the corner from their office, this is not the reality.

Investing in your Future!

Hard work and dedication is required to excel in any chosen career, if that means spending over an hour a day in the car or on the train then that is an investment in your future!

We even managed to quickly find some evidence, released by the Office of National Statistics from 2009 and published in a National Newspaper, that those who commuted longer, earnt more.

What we struggle to understand most comes back to a famous quote from a man by the name of Confucius:

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life

Surely doing your dream job implies you would have a happier life!

We would love to hear your thoughts on the research!
