    Default working from home

    Ive just had my first baby and due to go back to work soon, I can't afford not to. Does anyone know of any work from home ideas, that doesn't include doing parties or selling, I cant do childcare either. Probably a long shot.

    TIA

    mmmm not a fan of these home sales schemes. I find their tactics a bit annoying and aggressive.

    I'm an accountant and do a bit of bookkeeping/accounting for my own clients from home.

    if you have a particular skill that you use in your day job, see if there's any way you can use it by working from home on your own client/customer base.

    I gave up work when my DS was born & now run my own Vital Assistant business from home using my skills in admin & accounts.

    Do something you know and build on it I say. Or get into something like Avon.

    I just found lionbridge - online website assessment. Quite extensive examination to get the job, and only 10-20 hours but interested to know if any new Mums have experienced it, and what they thought.

    Some others have mentioned it but if you have a particular skill you could freelance your skills and make some money. There are afew websites that you can apply for freelance jobs and then get paid. I work in design, and am considering freelancing and working for myself instead but I'm not quite comfortable with the idea of not getting a secure payslip each week.

    @LSY I am employed by lionbridge. Can work your own hours, but the work can be boring and repetitive. It's a U.K. Company so you get paid a month behind for a month.
    I also have another job from home however it's pretty full on, full time hours and not flexible.

    Lol sorry wasn't trying to trip you up - was just excited there may have been another one I may not have known about...

    Was it difficult to join up?
