Our top picks for jobs from home

Like all jobs, when it comes to jobs from home there are some good opportunities and some bad opportunities.

The good opportunities will allow you the freedom to fit your work around your life, working where and when suits you. They will also provide a challenging and stimulating working environment and - most importantly - pay you a fair wage for any work that you do.

The bad opportunities are at best jobs that will pay you an insultingly low wage because employers know that working from home is a real benefit to many people. At worst, they turn out to be scams or pyramid schemes.

The following opportunities usually fit into the former category - the good opportunities that are both challenging and fairly paid...

  • Graphic designers are in high demand right now. Because almost all modern graphic design can be done online, there's no reason why you can't perform this role from home. Salaries can range from £18,000 to £55,000.
  • Freelance writers can also find a good range of opportunities in this digital age of communication. Yes, pay tends to be quite low (starting at about £10 for 500 words), but opportunities are plentiful and you could easily support yourself full time by writing online.
  • Data entry jobs from home have seen a recent resurgence. As companies look for ways to tighten their belts, more and more are outsourcing work to telecommuters. Working hours are normally entirely flexible. Expect a wage of between £5.25 and £8.50 an hour.
