Being a remote worker might be something you thought about trying for a while, but in the end you only focus on the downsides and you convince yourself that it's not going to work. Let me convince you that it is something worth trying - and is an amazing experience.
It might not be for everyone, but if you don't give it a try how would you know if you like it or not?
Before embarking on this journey, it's better to start on a smaller scale by being remote one day every week or every other week.
I'm a Senior Engineer at Simply Business, and I currently work from Scotland. A few months ago I made up my mind and started the remote working life.
Hi, my name is Bud and let me sell you on the remote working experience.
We also have colleagues working from Poland, Romania, Australia, Portugal, and a few other exotic locations. Some of us even tried the digital nomad lifestyle for a few months and enjoyed it.
But like anything in life, there are pros and cons to being a remote worker:
Some companies take remote working seriously and their actions reflect that. If your company is already remote-friendly then taking the next step will not be very difficult, but if your company is not prepared or does not believe in remote working you might have difficulty in convincing them to let you work from home at all.
Simply Business offers a full-fledged remote working experience, and anyone who's working from our offices has the option to work from home whenever they want or need.
If you ask any of us remote employees, the common consensus is that we have a mostly positive remote experience and we feel that Simply Business created the perfect environment for remote working.
We have a very remote-friendly culture:
After 10 months of working remotely I can say that it's been (and still is) quite an adventure for me. I enjoy every minute of it, and it's something I highly recommend that anyone tries at least once.
Simply Business is doing an excellent job addressing any difficulties that remote workers have.
If you're looking for an opportunity to work for a remote-friendly company, or you would like to give the nomad lifestyle a try, why not have a look at our job pages and see if there's anything you like.
