For some people, the thought of working from home without the support most jobs offer in the office or other workplace, would be a nightmare.

So the first thing to do before you take on any work is to research the firm you’ll be working for.

Types of jobs

Pay rates

Working from home means no need to buy clothing for work and it doesn’t cost you anything in petrol, but the rates of pay are normally pretty low. Most online jobs pay you for what you produce, so there’s no sick pay. The upside is that the harder you work, the more money you make. If you are on an hourly rate though, you should check if you’re earning the national minimum wage. If not, you can challenge the employer.


As long as you live in a quiet area or you can work through your neighbour's noise, working from home is a great way of making additional money.
