4 Ideas for a More Flexible Job

The traditional nine to five jobs are becoming less fundamental to adult life in the twenty-first century. Whether its because of the rise of convenience consumer culture, the varying demands of modern life, or the unique schedules that different people prefer to live by, there are now a wealth of flexible jobs with which you can build the perfect routine for pursuing the things you really love to do. Here are some ideas for sources of income thatll give you the elbow room to practice your hobbies.
Delivery Driving

The food delivery industry is booming in a time when services deliver to offices, care homes, and even parks around the clock. To cater for this demand, companies such as Deliveroo and Uber Eats offer flexible shifts to those hoping to earn a few bucks on a flexible and relaxed basis. Check out the uber eats driver requirements to ensure youre eligible, and in no time youll have flexible driving shifts to build a work-life balance around.

Freelance Work

It might mean taking a course in one of those areas that offers the most freelance work - proofreading and graphic design are two of the bigger examples - but once you have the necessary skills under your belt, its easy to find websites on which you can advertise your services and your rates to prospective companies looking for a talented job done on a freelance basis. Freelance work may often be deadline-driven, but youre able to work on it when and where it suits you, whether that be in a coffee shop at 6am or in bed at midnight.

Agency Links

Instead of the reliable wage packet that nine to five workers receive each week or month, agency work allows you to spend a number of days out of work - giving you complete freedom to pursue what you want - and then a number of days in work to make up the cash. Youll be able to accept or turn down shifts as you wish, which is the essence of flexibility; sometimes a long shift in which youll earn enough to keep you going for a week will seem attractive, while sometimes you will be able to turn this down in favor of continuing whatever personal project youre enjoying working on.


This is the most beguiling option, especially as there may be a chance that a creative hobby of yours - like painting or sewing - could actually prove to be profitable if you can find a market to sell to. In any case, being self-employed can mean anything from having an online store to starting your own small business to which you can devote every waking hour if you so wish. Self-employment can be as stressful as it is liberating; if youve got an idea, see how successful it can be at earning you an income.

We work to live, but that doesnt mean we have to live to work. Finding a flexible job to adjust your work-life balance could be the perfect option for you so that you have plenty of time to spend practicing your hobbies.
