Hello! Mumsnet Jobs team here. We've noticed this thread is fairly old now, and some of the information is out of date. We've put together this article of advice, tips and tricks to start working from home. Alternatively, you can look at the work from home opportunities on Mumsnet Jobs. We hope this is helpful!


Hello smile

I work full time and love my job, perks are great, etc. But the pay isn't great and we are really struggling to make ends meet lately.

The other half can get overtime which really helps and I just wish there was more I could do to help!

Do you know of any flexible work or work from home jobs that are worth doing? I need to be home in the evenings and am limited to what I can do on the weekends so I appreciate it's going to be tricky to find anything but wondered if anyone had any ideas?

Today I have enquired about the Body Shop at Home - thoughts on this?

Body Shop won't bring you much income in to be honest, and unless you can be out doing parties all the time (and even then there is no guarantee of income) you are wasting your time and money. Body Shop always has a sale or offers on in their stores or online, because the products don't sell at full price.
There are a lot of threads about genuine work from home opportunities, that do not require you to pay anything upfront. It all depends on your skillset. In the interim have you considered doing surveys? Not amazing pay but a bit of extra if you need it. Money Saving Expert has good tips for doing this.
Going forward, can you consider a new job or studying in order to get promoted?

Hi, I've not tried body shop at home but did attempt some other selling product company and spent more time organising parties and not making much.
I recently joined another company called Utility warehouse after being a customer for a year, it's a great company and able to earn a income from it x

Hi, depending on what skills and experience you have you could go onto it's basically a freelancing website where employers/clients requiring a service can be matched to freelancers, you agree a cost and complete the work. I've just registered and haven't done much yet but through this mention it incase it can help?

I was also going to mention: peopleperhour. Seems like a good place to get started and build a reputation for yourself

I work flexibly from home and have for just over 4 years. I work alongside a referral network now. I build leads. The business make all sales. It's not time consuming. No tie ins or targets and they pay really well. Definitely slots in alongside life! Really rewarding to!
