Helping People Like You Work From Home
MORE AND MORE, people from all over Australia are balancing work and home life by leveraging the power offered by the internet to work remotely from home.
The Career Academy from WORKFACE help students and members get skills, knowledge and confidence to work remotely from home, re-enter the workforce, or find a more preferable position, on your own terms, using leading cloud-based software programs.
Be your own boss
Most jobs are now going online because employees need to work remotely from home but you can also do the work as an independent business owner, running your own business from home.
The difference is that as a business owner you can quote whatever rate you want, manage your own time and then invoice for the work you do. This can be as an hourly rate or on a fixed regular rate.
Who do we help?
People returning to the workforce (such as parents); people seeking work experience and internships in finance and administration; and people of all ages and backgrounds with a diverse range of skills and experience, and who are prepared to promote and keep up-skilling themselves, are successfully working as contractors, virtual assistants and small business owners.
These individuals work in accounts as bookkeepers and data entry operators, in offices as business support roles and writers and marketing consultants, social media consultants.
Working from home goes by many names, including:
- Remote contractor
- Remote worker
- Independent contractor
- Virtual Assistant
— and they are everywhere!
People who work at home can be employees or run a micro business from home. They are part of a new breed of smart, savvy and disciplined workers who understand the win-win of using technology — and staying out of traffic.
