Teachers make the best savers

10/04/2012 Joanna
Professionals in education jobs are the best at saving their hard-earned money, a new study has revealed.

Researchers looked at the savings habits of people in 25 different professions and teachers were ahead of those working in marketing, finance, engineering and IT.

According to the study by the Co-operative Bank, those working in teaching jobs save an average of £2,125 every year - by far and away the highest level of saving discovered in the study.

Those in marketing came second with annual savings of £2,107 and finance professionals were in third place with £1,999.

Commenting on the research findings, Zack Hocking, head of savings at the Co-operative Bank, said: "Keeping a small portion of your wages aside each month can help to reduce the effect these difficult financial times are having."

At the bottom of the list were agriculture workers, who put away an average of £343 each year, while those in media were two-thirds of the way down the list with £968.
