Looking for work you can do from home?

Are you looking for work you can do from home? There's a range of great opportunities out there! Here we round up advice on where to find work from home jobs, how to tell if they are genuine, and how to start working from home successfully.

Finding work from home vacancies

Many work from home employers are small companies with a modest recruitment budget. This means that you won't often find them on major job search sites (like Monster at monster.co.uk or Total Jobs at totaljobs.co.uk). Look out for advertised positions on Gumtree, in your local newspaper and on online forums. By all means, check out what's on offer with the big recruiters, but expect competition for these vacancies to be fierce.

How to spot genuine work from home jobs

The problem with relying on free ads and forums for vacancies is that they are open to abuse by fraudsters. Many of the ads you see are actually re-branded pyramid schemes or rip-off positions that will take your time and effort but never pay you for it. The best way to distinguish between genuine vacancies and fake ones is simply to use your common sense. If a job seems too good to be true, it probably is. Real jobs offer a realistic rate of pay for real work.

How to successfully work from home

In order to be successful at work from home jobs, you'll need to be highly organised. We recommend that you set up a home office (this doesn't have to be a whole room, just a designated work space). This will help minimise distractions and increase your productivity.
