I want to work from home, what can I do?

Have you ever asked yourself 'I want to work from home, what can I do?' You're not alone. Now more than ever, there are thousands of people across the UK seeking work from home jobs. The surge in demand is down to a number of reasons - the rise in unemployment, the social acceptance of telecommuting, increased awareness of work from home jobs... Whatever reason you have for applying, you're likely to be more successful if you find a vacancy that suits your skills.

So what can you do? Only you can really answer that, but here we'll run through a quick guide to help you identify the best work from home jobs for you.

  • Have you always wanted to start your own business? Why not become a seller on eBay? Although it doesn't sound as exciting as opening a shop or another "real world" business venture, it's a lot less risky. You can start small and work with low amounts of initial investments. Once you learn the ropes, there's huge earning potential.
  • Are you creative? If so, the world's your oyster. Creative industries are actively promoting telecommuting as the future - and you'll find craft jobs, design jobs and writing jobs available on a work from home basis.
  • Do you love working with people? Although you may think of a work from home venture as something you do on your own, there are plenty of opportunities that will allow you to interact with people. For starters, how about telesales, or charity phone jobs?
