Flexible careers to suit a busy lifestyle

Fitting work around your lifestyle can be difficult when you’re busy living your life. However, if you need a little extra income, there are still plenty of jobs out there with the flexibility that allows you to keep up with your to-do list while bringing home a pay cheque.  Here’s a round up of careers you can take on that suit a busy lifestyle:

Cleaning

If you’re looking for something that you can do in your free time without too much stress you might want to consider joining the Molly Maid team and looking into their cleaning jobs. The team members typically work 25 to 30 hours and can earn between £180 and £250 per week. Route Manager positions, which come with a company car, can earn up to £280 per week.

You’ll never have to work in the evenings or at the weekends and you will receive paid holiday. So while meeting new people and making friends you’ll be earning a comfortable income in a fun and supportive environment.

Blogging

We live in an age where 12 year olds are being paid to post videos onto YouTube, so don’t underestimate what you can do from home if you have a particular passion. The most popular blogs out there are usually educational and dedicated to past times such as cookery, sport, DIY, beauty and healthcare.

If you need instant income, then this probably isn’t the best option as it can take some time to start bringing in money. However, if you have time to play with then learn how to create an excellent website and show the Internet what you’re made of. You can read more on how to make millions from blogging, here.

Dog walking

According to a survey carried out by the Daily Mail, a professional dog-walker can earn up to £64,000 a year. If you love the canine companions this could be something to consider as a career. You’ll need to take out insurance to protect yourself in case a dog gets injured and cover fuel costs but you can charge anything from £10/hour and you’ll always be dealing with happy customers, it’s a win-win really.

Teaching

Another option that is relatively flexible is getting into teaching. The training options to become a teacher enjoy funding by the government and you may even be eligible for a bursary. If you visit the Get Into Teaching website you can find out more about your options.

Child minding

If you’re at home all day looking after your own children and you’re enjoying it then perhaps you could consider becoming a nanny for someone else’s. If you can’t leave home then you could consider setting your home up for day care and running a business from home. It will allow you to earn extra income while continuing with your daily life. All you need when it comes to qualifications is to be over 18 and you’ll also need clearance from the Disclosure and Barring Service (a DBS check.)
