Finding a new job is the biggest New Year's resolution for most Brits in 2020, research suggests.
In a survey of 2,000 Brits by job board CV-Library, 64% admitted they want to find a new job in the New Year.
Three quarters (77%) of Brits think the New Year is a perfect opportunity for a fresh start.
Finding a new job is the resolution Brits most want to achieve this year, with 64% citing it as something they want to change in 2020.
Earning more money, be it at their current job or a new one, follows closely behind at 58%.
And coming in third, 41% of Brits want to burn off those Christmas calories, saying losing weight is their biggest goal for the new year.
Learning a new life skill came in fourth at 38%, followed by saving money at 37%, and improving their mental health at 28%.
Taking on a new hobby (24%), moving to a new house (23%), and getting a promotion (18%) are also on Brits' agendas.
Learning a new language came in at number 10, with 17% of Brits saying it's something they'd like to try in 2020.
Lee Biggins, CEO of CV-Library said: “With the New Year comes new opportunities and there’s no better time for a fresh start; especially when it comes to your career.
“When the market is so uncertain, learning a new skill or language can be hugely beneficial and even help to improve your chances of landing a new job, earning more money or gaining a promotion.
“Alongside this, having resolutions and goals to aim for will boost your motivation, self-confidence and give you a clear focus to work towards. Try your best to stick with them; we know how easy it is to let them slip, particularly if they’re too challenging. But, a little perseverance can go a long way!”
Interestingly, the data also found some stark generational differences — 70% of 25- to 34 year-olds are keen to earn more money in the New Year, compared to just 52% of 55- to 64-year-olds.
Alongside this, losing weight was the number one priority for under 18s, while only 39% of 25- to 34-year-olds and 29% of 35- to 44-year-olds felt this was important.
