Can Your Job be done Remotely?

  1. 1. CAN YOUR JOB BE DONE REMOTELY? 6 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF Have you been contemplating a part or full transition to remote working? Before you start looking for a new flexworking position, ask yourself these questions. Moving your current job from the openspace to your living room may be simpler than you think! 1 ARE YOU A DIGITAL NOMAD? Some positions like graphic designers, writers, software developers and illustrators are inherently solo missions that can easily be done out of office. 3 DO YOU KEEP ODD WORKING HOURS? 2 DO YOU SPEND SIGNIFICANT TIME ON THE ROAD? If you are a frequent business traveler or are often away at client and customer sites anyway, consider spending the small amount of time that you’re in-office at home. For those of us who work outside a traditional 9-5 or are routinely on-call, remote working may not only be more convenient but could also save the company on overhead expenditures. 4 IS YOUR TEAM ALREADY REMOTE? Just because you commute to the office everyday doesn’t mean you’re in the same location as your key contacts. If the majority or entirety of your team works from another office, you’re already working remotely. 5 DO YOU HAVE ACCESS TO VIRTUAL COLLABORATION TOOLS? Conferencing, shared workspaces, chat and virtual project management tools are already part our everyday lives, and are easily accessed from any connected computer – including the one in your house. 6 IS YOUR PERSONALITY CONDUCIVE TO REMOTE WORKING? Admittedly, remote working is not for everyone. But if you’re a self-starter, motivated, focused and flexible, why not power up a home office and see what happens?
