Very interesting to read this thread and Oonagh’s desire to work from home.
I’m lucky enough to work from home, but the business is not doing that well at the moment so I’m looking around for work myself that will allow me to work at least part of the time from home. It’s VERY tough to find anything that isn’t some sort of con (the type where they get you to cold-call hundreds of people a day!), and it seems that those who do work from home also spend some time in the office and were already at a fairly high level of salary and seniority.
I can’t go back to my old teaching career due to the myriad MS symptoms that are just getting worse, and am really struggling to find something else I would enjoy.
