Looking for graduate jobs you can do from home?  We know that a new priority for many young people is having a job you can do at home. We have put together a list of jobs and careers you do from home, even after others return to the office.

During 2020, millions of people across the UK had to acclimatise to working from home. And while this came with many challenges for some, it opened up an entirely new way of working for others. One they may not want to give up. Many people have found the freedom and flexibility of working from home very liberating, and the idea of returning to the office, with an expensive and tiring commute, can be extremely off-putting for some.

For graduates who are just starting in the world of work, remote working offers even more possibilities and benefits. You do not need to commit to one location in the UK, you can combine work with travel, and you can make more time for side-projects. Have a browse below of some of the top graduate jobs you can do from home.

  1. Journalism 

Journalism is the profession of writing news articles, magazine articles, opinion articles or preparing news to be broadcast. While some journalism requires vising locations and investigating stories, you can do many other types of journalism from home—for example, commentary on the news, fashion journalism, and any opinion articles. The BBC offer a series of graduate jobs in journalism.

  1. Artist

Being a freelance artist is a great way to take control of your work schedule. If you have a craft, you could look into setting up a website or online shop to sell your products and art pieces. However, it’s important to note that it can be hard to make a living solely out of selling artwork. Visual art is a saturated and competitive industry, and it may take some time before you are financially stable.

  1. Digital Marketing and Social Media 

Digital marketing is the advertisement and promotion of a business, product, or service through digital means and online technology. it includes branding products, social media and creating online content. It combines creativity with business and strategy skills and can be done from the comfort of your own home.

  1. Online tutoring 

The pandemic has opened up even more online tutoring positions for graduates. There are many rewarding avenues in online tutoring, from extra help to assisting GCSEs and A-levels in tutoring English as a foreign language. You could either join an agency which connects you with potential people to tutor, or you can find and set up your own clients.

  1. Copywriting 

Copywriting is writing the text for marketing or advertising purposes. It may not necessarily be to sell something, but the role usually is part of a larger marketing role and is under the umbrella of promotion and advertising. The content can be extremely varied from health blogs to hotel descriptions; all businesses need ‘copy’ to describe what they do and promote their company.
