It may have taken a little bit of time for some of us to come around to the idea of remote and hybrid working, but the majority of office workers have seen the benefits by now. 77% of remote workers say they’re more productive when working from home and additionally, we tend to enjoy a better work-life balance when we work remotely too.
One of the main benefits for former office workers during the pandemic was the absence of a twice-daily commute. Whatever way you undertook yours, it stole from your day at either end, and we’ve all enjoyed having that free time back. So it is no surprise that people are prioritising the ability to retain remote working when they are thinking about making a career change – in fact 85% of managers believe that having teams with remote workers will become the new normal.
Three-quarters of us say that having the option to work remotely would make us less likely to leave a company, so it is clear that when we are looking for a new role, having the ability to work from home or enjoy a hybrid mix of a couple of days in the office and the rest of the week remote is the ideal. With that in mind, we’ve found three great roles that do allow for good flexibility below – and there are plenty more available on our Job Board too.
