With the ever-changing and fast-paced world of the 21st Century constantly expanding, the drawbacks of less simple times are obvious and it can be hard to remember that the perks can far outweigh the negatives. For instance, we no longer have to search the classifieds in a newspaper or scavenge door-to-door for a job. The worldwide web has made it easy to job search remotely and efficiently, which is especially helpful if you are a mum looking for an extra income. All you need to do is use online job search engines like Jobrapido to check flexible jobs anywhere in the UK from Bournemouth to Glasgow expand your opportunities for the following jobs:
One great option for a mum that is looking to expand her income without having to give up all of her much needed time with children and family is a Translator. If you happen to be bilingual it is possible for you to stay at home entirely and be hired to translate audio files or documents more effectively than a word-for-word online translation generator.
Thinking that travel agents went out of style in the turn of the Century? Think again. Online travel agents have become a viable career in the last decade. They are vital in helping clients to overcome and see through travel industry scams that they may fall victim to. This can also be a lucrative career in the long run with some travel agents making up to 100,000 a year.
Call Center Representative
You may think that when you call customer service for product help you are talking to just another face in a row of cubicles. However, most call center representatives are actually working from home. This can be an ideal situation if you are a working mother, looking for an extra income, but want complete flexibility. This leaves you the power to choose when you want to work and for how long. Most jobs do pay by the minute, so be aware of this when looking for these kinds of jobs.
We all have a traditional view of what a teacher should look like: chalk in hand, apple on desk, and with a strong grasp on interactivity in her classroom. This however is something that has changed with the advent of the web. There are plenty of opportunities for teachers and tutors to get started and find work virtually (and still provide a collaborative education). You are able to make a reasonable income doing something that you may be trained in and love, if you are willing to commit to the hours. Where you take your teaching is up to you, but it is one of the fastest-growing online careers out there.
