Spot real homework jobs in London

Homework jobs in London may seem like the answer to all your problems. Working from home allows you to fit other duties (like caring for the kids, studying or doing a second job) around your job. It also allows you to work from the comfort and privacy of your own home - something which is highly prized in this age of office cubicles and hot desking.

But unfortunately, not all work from home jobs are what they seem. Scams are a common problem encountered by telecommuting job seekers, in London and elsewhere. You can minimise the risk of being scammed by following this advice...

  • Never part with money upfront, no matter how innocuous the request may sound. Many work from home "agencies" ask for a sign up fee or a joining fee, then give you information that is of minimal use. Other scams, disguised as job vacancies, ask for money for a start up kit or for the equipment you need to get going in the new job. Often the perpetrators will take your money and disappear; or else you'll receive an information leaflet about how to participate in the scam to get your money back.
  • Always conduct thorough research on the company or the employer. If you can't find enough information online, phone them to request some - genuine employers won't mind. Online review sites or forums can be especially helpful when researching the company's reputation.
  • Go with your instincts. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
