LAWYERS and bankers have been named as some of the “least important jobs” according to a new survey.

The study, from, revealed that just 3% of Brits believe lawyers’ jobs are important.

Airline staff and Bankers came in next gaining 8% and 12% of the vote respectively.

Meanwhile, nurses, doctors and supermarket workers topped the poll, thanks to their contribution in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The survey asked more than 2,000 adults what they consider Britain’s most important job roles to be.

The data revealed Brits labelled the nation’s most ‘important’ jobs as front line workers, and the least ‘important’ tend to be those working from home like office workers.

The deals will be available on an on-going basis to ensure staff continue to be rewarded after the pandemic.

Anita Naik, Lifestyle Editor at, said: “NHS staff and other key workers have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to care and provide for the public – in fact, our study shows 57% believe it is key workers that kept the country going.

“It’s now clear that the vast majority believe they should be rewarded for the amazing efforts they have gone to.

“While brands offered various discounts to workers during the pandemic, we think this support shouldn’t stop – which is why VoucherCodes has launched a hub full of deals specifically for NHS staff.

“Because the codes are only accessible with an NHS email, brands can offer extra special discounts for NHS workers as a thank you for all they have done working on the frontline against Covid-19.”
