How to find working from home jobs in the UK

Are you interested in finding working from home jobs in the UK? These opportunities are usually totally flexible, allowing you to work whenever and wherever suits you. That's why they are popular with full time mums, students, and people who want to earn a little extra money to supplement their regular income. But how do you find these working form home job vacancies?

Make no mistake, when it comes to work from home jobs, it can be difficult to get your foot in the door. Once you are established yourself as a freelancer or telecommuter in your industry, assignments and jobs will come more easily. But when you are just setting out, things can be a little more tricky.

Out together an online portfolio to showcase your work and help to convince employers that even though you might have limited experience, you can still make a valuable input to their business.

However, don't rely on employers stumbling across your portfolio - you have to put in a bit of effort to raise your profile in the world of working from home.

You can take the direct approach by speculatively applying to companies that you think may hire telecommuters or freelancers. Send them a good (and tailored) CV, cover letter and your portfolio.

The indirect approach takes more time, but often results in long term rewards. This involves making valuable contributions to your industry - through comments on industry blogs, or joining in discussions on LinkedIn, for example. Link to your portfolio or website where relevant.
