What is your dream job?

A hairdresser styling a model's hair
Hairdressers, beauticians and florists are the happiest workers in the UK, according to a new survey.

The research says that one of the secrets to being happy at work is if you can socialise and meet people as you do your job.

So, what would you most like to be when you grow-up?

Do you dream of being a top sports star?

Or perhaps you'd like to be involved in research and make a new scientific or medical discovery?

Maybe you've always wanted to work with animals?

And what is most important to you - is it a big pay packet you're after, or a job you can enjoy?
