    The survival and success of organizations depends more each day on their human resources. The current organization needs that employees consider the corporative objectives as their own objectives. So, job satisfaction of employees has a growing importance as a competitive and quality factor of the organization. This paper presents a research about determining factors of job satisfaction in the private educational field in Andalusia, Spain, testing several hypotheses about the influence of worker and job features over global job satisfaction. The results highlight a higher level of satisfaction among women, managers, full-time workers and a Ushaped relationship with age. We have not detected a significant relation between the level of job satisfaction and working hours, seniority, dependence of salary or unionization. El éxito y la supervivencia de las organizaciones dependen cada vez más de la capacidad de sus recursos humanos. La moderna organización requiere que sus empleados consideren los objetivos corporativos como suyos. Así, se pone de manifiesto la importancia de la satisfacción laboral de los trabajadores como factor de competitividad y calidad en la empresa. La presente investigación recoge los resultados de un estudio sobre los determinantes de la satisfacción laboral en el ámbito de la educación concertada de Andalucía, contrastando diversas hipótesis acerca de la posible influencia que ciertas variables, referentes tanto al trabajador como al puesto pueden ejercer sobre el nivel de satisfacción expresada por los participantes. Los resultados muestran un mayor grado de satisfacción para las mujeres, los puestos directivos y la dedicación a tiempo completo, así como una relación en forma de U con la edad. No se ha detectado una tendencia estadística significativa entre las horas de trabajo, la antigüedad, la dependencia de los ingresos, la afiliación sindical y el grado de satisfacción laboral.
