Could you do data entry jobs from home in the UK?

Interested in data entry jobs from home in the UK? The good news is that there are a growing number of vacancies in this area, as employers begin to realise that telecommuters are the way forward. They are associated with higher productivity, less sick days and higher employee satisfaction rates.

However, the bad news is that you'll face stiff competition for data entry jobs from home. Home working is highly desirably to many people, and for that reason even highly qualified professionals will apply for vacancies. There are a few things that will set you apart from the competition and increase your chances of snagging that vacancy:

  • At least two years' experience in data entry. While there are plenty of entry level jobs in this industry, very few allow you to work from home. Home working data entry jobs are usually awarded to people who have the confidence and ability to work under minimal supervision.
  • A third level or advanced qualification in a related discipline would also be highly regarded, but is not essential.
  • A sound technological background is also highly regarded. Although data entry jobs are rarely technical in nature, you will be expected to be able to handle minor errors and fix basic problems yourself - after all, there will be no IT department there to help you.
  • A working knowledge of the systems that the company uses would set you apart from the competition. Familiarity with common Content Management Systems (CMS) is a bonus.

Good luck with your job search!
