Top 5 jobs you can do from home

Dreaming of working from home but not sure where to start? Perhaps you're having difficulties finding genuine vacancies, or perhaps you'd just like to start your own business in your free time. Here we've compiled five of the best jobs you can do from home. Hopefully this will provide the inspiration that you need to get started!

  1. Graphic design: as more and more companies go online, the demand for graphic designers who can build and design websites is soaring. Lots of companies are willing to employ telecommuters, while others hire designers on a work from home freelance basis.
  2. Freelance writing: if you're a decent writer and you're willing to learn the basics of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and internet media laws, you could land a great role producing digital content for media companies.
  3. eBaying: if you've got the drive and a good eye for a bargain, you could make money buying goods wholesale and selling them on eBay. Start small and you'll soon be confident about how to advertise your goods and how to make a profit.
  4. Telecommuting call centres: many big companies, including BT, employ their call centre staff on a work from home basis. If you've got excellent phone manner and solid customer service skills, this could be the role for you.
  5. Dog walking: ok, so technically you'll have to leave the house for this one, but you can still stay in your neighbourhood! You'd be surprised by how many responses you might get by posting some adverts for dog walking services.
