Work Remotely

Our goal is to help you get your first remote role. Here’s what you’ll be learning and working on to achieve that…

Phase 1: Remote Working 101

This is a crash course for absolute beginners and those new to the world of remote working to understand the nuts and bolts of what it’s like to work remotely, what’s different about it, what you need (and what you don’t). This will help prepare you for the realities of finding remote roles that work for you. [Duration: 2 weeks]

Phase 2: Selling Yourself

This is about understanding how to sell yourself to prospective employers, remotely. The application and interview process for remote roles can be vastly different to the processes you’ve experienced in the past, so you’ll be fully prepared for whatever you face, with the tools in place to help you stand out amongst fellow applicants. [Duration: 4 weeks]

Phase 3: Apply & Succeed

This phase is where you reap the rewards of phases 2 and 3, by applying and interviewing for your first remote role. We will be with you every step of the way, with practical and emotional support, to help you through this process successfully and sign your first remote work job contract! [Duration: 2 weeks+]

Got Questions?

Your Questions Answered

What if I have no skills?

Many current remote roles require tech skills such as coding, web development and more. There are however many roles which are suitable for non-tech folk! We will help you identify which roles you could do (even when you think you can’t), and help you gain the confidence to be able to work online successfully. 

What if the tech stuff isn't simple enough for me? I'm a total technophobe.

It will be. We promise. We are uniquely accustomed to and experienced with working with technophobes. Additionally, we provide many ways for you to get support so if you’re stuck, there will always be somewhere to get the support you need.

I don't have a laptop or computer Yet. How do I know what to buy?

Just ask us! And we will happily point you in the right direction once we understand what kind of job you’re looking to secure and what you’re likely to need (and if you don’t know that yet, that’s ok too – we can give you suggested options).

Who are the mentors & Coaches?

We have hand-selected remote working professionals, experts and advocates as mentors and coaches. Many of them know what it’s like to have started out in your shoes – as single parents, people who stepped off the career ladder, from a disadvantaged community, surviving on benefits etc. – and understand what it takes to dramatically change a situation which feels hopeless. 

I'm the founder/CEO of a company and love what you're doing. How can I support this?

We would LOVE to hear from you! In the first instance, please get in touch with us by email to [email protected] and our founder will be in touch to discuss what options exist. We are always on the lookout for remote-first and remote-friendly companies who want to provide sponsored places or mentoring and coaching for students who’d benefit from taking our courses to get back into the workplace.

Why are the tuition fees variable?

This is one of our creative financing approaches – some folk may just want a part-time, short term remote job while others may see this as the start of a long and beautiful remote working career!

While we believe the value of this education is priceless, our “Pay What You Can” approach to fees means that you have the option to pay what the education is worth to you – short and long term. It also means that our courses are more affordable to those who need the financial flexibility and don’t want to be saddled with a debt they cannot repay. 

I've not had a 'normal' (or any kind of) job for years. can i really be part of a remote workforce?

Absolutely! Many of the remote-first companies who hire ONLY remote employees are part of a new breed of companies, whose goal it is to create more flexible, more creative and more adaptable work environments which better suit people who don’t fit into the ‘conventional’ boxes. 

Are there really paid remote jobs I can do and fit around my children? I've been burned before by work-from-home Scams 🙁

Yes. Lea, our founder, and many of our mentors and coaches have worked remotely around their children and figured out how to do this successfully without going crazy! Additionally, Lea and others do this while also home educating their children. 

What equipment do I need?

You will need access to a computer – ideally a laptop, but that’s not vital – and a fast, stable internet connection. These are likely to be the minimum requirements for securing a remote role too so they are fundamental to your success. If you don’t have these and are highly motivated and determined to work remotely, please get in touch as we are working with remote-first companies to overcome this hurdle too.

You say I can access the community UNTIL I get my first remote job. What if I need support afterwards?

If you decide to take our “Thrive Remotely” course, you’ll get automatic access to our Thrive Remotely community which is designed specifically to support people who already work remotely, to help them thrive and overcome any ongoing challenges they encounter. For a small monthly fee, you can become a member os this community without taking the course.
