What is homeworking?

Homeworking is when you live and work in the same place. Homeworkers will usually fit into one of the following four areas:

  • Self-employed.
    Most people working from home fall into this area. They either provide a product or service from home such as a web designer, CV consultant or cake maker; or use their home as a base such as a plasterer, street trader or musician.
  • Free-lance
    Means that you are self-employed but have an existing skill (e.g. physiotherapist, proof reader).
  • Outworkers
    Are skilled piece-workers and contract packers who are paid to carry out work at home.
  • Teleworkers
    Are usually employees using technology installed in their homes by their employers to enable them to do their job from home.
