Forget a pension pot or a company car - generation Z's top job demands include flexible hours, getting birthdays off work and plant-based milks for coffee, a new survey has revealed. 

Access to a life coach, Friday afternoons off and being allowed to bring a dog to work also make it in the priorities list for young employees, the survey of 2,000 working Brits aged 18 - 29 showed.

Modern Brits now also focus on the ability to work from home and deem a relaxed dress code a must. 

Linda Blank, COO, Feedr, which conducted the research said: 'There has been a lot of negativity around Gen Z's expectations of work, however, they are the future workforce and it's important to understand what matters to them. 

'The research shows that young people want to feel supported, valued and respected in the workplace by employers who understand the benefits they want and value, from nutritious food to access to mental health support.' 

The top five thing Generation Z look for in a job are flexible hours (45 per cent), getting your birthday off work (39 per cent), a good coffee machine (28 per cent), working from home at least twice a week (27 per cent) and a gym membership (26 per cent). 

Other priorities included the ability to have a shower after cycling in to the office, which 13 per cent said was important, and nine per cent said bringing their dog to the office was a must.  

Fifteen per cent of Gen Z's want every Friday afternoon off and one in five said a relaxed dress code is a must.
