Whether the thoughts of leaving your baby and heading back into the workplace fills you with dread, or you have done the maths and you simply can’t afford childcare yet still want a career of some kind, the following ten jobs are ones you can do from home.
Here are ten ideas to get you started:
Think of something that really interests you be it parenting, health and fitness or food and set up a blog page. Build up a good following and get in touch with PR agencies who may like to advertise on your site.
Love baking cakes and buns? Why not set up your own cake business and do birthday, christening or even wedding cakes.
Can’t afford childcare? Let your friends and family know that you plan on doing this and build up a reputation that way.
If you are handy with arts and crafts, sewing and mending why not make a few things and sell them on Etsy, eBay or even Amazon.
If you are a qualified hairdresser why not set up a salon in your home and work around your own schedule.
Tailor/ dress maker
Good at sewing? Set up a tailoring or dress making business and have people come to your house at a time that suits you.
If you are good at a particular subject like English, Maths, or a foreign language why not tutor students from your home.
Social media manager
Love social media? Go ahead and offer your skills and services to companies who don’t have the staff or knowledge to work their social media accounts.
If you have a computer science degree under your belt, why not help companies with any IT issues from the comfort of your own home.
If you live in a bit of a tourist hotspot why not set up your very own B&B.
