Flexible Telecommute Jobs: 12 Ideas for Working Families

flexible telecommute jobs

More than 50 percent of telecommuters care for a child or relative in their homes on a regular basis. In honor of National Work & Family Month, Virtual Vocations is delving into flexible telecommute jobs that can provide working families with an increase in scheduling freedom and earned income. 

Enacted 13 years ago by a congressional resolution, National Work and Family Month—sponsored by WorldatWork—is an annual, month-long observance during October that brings renewed focus to daily challenges U.S. professionals navigate while attempting to balance work and family.

Through our nearly 10 years of experience in connecting telecommute job seekers to human-screened opportunities to work from home or remotely, we’ve learned that what job seekers want most is flexibility. Flexible telecommute jobs are a solution for families who need or want more time at home and less time traveling for work, part-time or alternative scheduling options, and supplemental income earned through freelance contracts and temporary work assignments.

To kick off our National Work & Family Month celebration, we abstracted data from our Telecommute Jobs Database and Telecommute Companies Database on some of the most prevalent flexible telecommute jobs for working families, as well as data on employers known for hiring qualified professionals to fill those positions on a telecommute basis. Coupled with median wage statistics from PayScale, we’ve compiled this list of flexible telecommute jobs working families can utilize when making financial and scheduling decisions that best suit the demands of their professional and personal lives:
