Part Time Work from Home Job Overview

Part time jobs that can be done from home are ideal for those who need to earn a little extra cash and have to fit working hours around other commitments. Part time jobs that can be done at home vary in scope and remuneration, but expect to work on a freelance basis, or be paid on commission or results. Make sure that the amount paid meets the minimum wage for an hour's work (currently £6.50 for those over 21).

Part Time Work From Home Education Requirements

Some things can be done at home on the computer, such as blogging and content writing. No specific qualifications are required, but having high levels of literacy and a good knowledge of grammar is important - being able to write content that's fun to read helps too! If knowing any foreign languages, translation work can often be picked up on a freelance basis. For qualified teachers, exam marking is also an option at key times of the year, particularly in the summer. Companies also pay home workers to fill in surveys for market research - doing this latter job won't earn a big pay packet, but it is relatively easy and doesn't require any specialist skills or experience. Other work, such as distributing catalogues or throwing "tupperware parties" can also help to make ends meet, and doesn't require particular qualifications - just dedication and a bit of old fashioned hard work.

Part Time Work From Home Job Market

Given the nature of part time work from home jobs, there can't be any hard information on the market. That being said, seasonal trends should be looked at, such as when clients are most active. Generally speaking, when the economy is doing well, there will also be more jobs available. If work from home jobs are scarce, consider short-term alternatives, such as Christmas Temp Jobs or more general Seasonal Jobs.

Part Time Work From Home Job Salary Information
