Working from home was one of the most significant employment trends of the past year. While remote work had been increasing in many sectors for the past decade or more, the COVID-19 pandemic kicked it into hyperdrive.
While some offices are slowly reopening, many remain closed. The majority of workers surveyed say that they prefer to continue working from home for the foreseeable future.
If you are one of those who favours working from your home office rather than commuting to the workplace, how can you find a remote position? Which fields are hiring staff to work from home?
The team over at FlexJobs has crunched the numbers. They analyzed online job postings over the past year to determine trends in recruiting for remote workers and have compiled a list of the top categories.
The top ten sectors for remote jobs have all seen job postings for work-from-home positions increase by at least 25 per cent since the start of the pandemic and continue to rise throughout the year. This indicates that these are the most promising fields for remote work in 2021.
