Homeworking on the increase

Analysis of unpublished data: TUC 

  • The number of people working from home has increased by 13 per cent in the last five years
  • Just over four million employees usually worked at home in 2012, a rise of 470,000 since 2007.
  • 65% of people who work from home are male
  • The majority of homeworking jobs created in the last five years have gone to women.
  • The rise in female homeworking is partly due to the fact that almost nine in ten (86.8 per cent) of these new jobs are part-time.
