Want to work from home and earn £80k per year?

Want to find one of the best work from home jobs whilst earning £80k per year?

We are all looking for our dream job.

For some of us that might be working with animals, for others it might be science.

For most of us though, it is about earning enough money to enjoy life outside of work and unfortunately most of the jobs that pay well are often either boring or not all that enjoyable.

About 6-7 years ago, I was in the exact same position when leaving 6th form (school).

Well let me save you a bit of time, web development was the answer, it still is and it will only be getting better.

On average in London web developers can earn between £40,000 and £120,000 per year.

Some even more than that.

Work life balance with remote working

I don’t think there is any other career that can provide quite as many options to be as flexible as web development does.

One of the main reasons behind web development being so flexible is that you can do it from anywhere which means you can often work from home, otherwise known as remote working.

It can be difficult to find remote working jobs, but from my experience with web development, it is harder to find a job that won’t let you work from home than finding one that will.

The second reason comes down to flexible hours, most of the time you can choose what hours you work - within reason.

So If you want an extra hour in bed, you can usually have it.

Thirdly, most people understand that you need to have rest throughout the day. Do you like to play ping pong, foosball, or maybe learning something new?

If the answer is yes, it is about time to start learning how to code.

It is easier than you think (when I started I knew nothing about computers or coding).

One last powerful point is that you don’t have to be employed.

You have a lot of options when it comes to being a web developer, and if employment doesn’t suit you, here are a few other options you could run with:

  1. Contracting
  2. Freelancing
  3. Co-founding
  4. Building your own product

Being able to code empowers you to live how you want and gives you the tools you need to build your own products in the digital age!

A job that pays well, with no cap

No you might be thinking how you don’t want to leave your current steady career and take a paycut. Now, a Junior web developer in London could expect to earn between £20,000 - £40,000 per year.

With each year of experience you gain, you will be able to charge more and more for your services, and there doesn’t really seem to be a cap to the earning potential.

The average senior developer earns around £65,000 - £100,000 per year in London.

But after becoming a senior developer, you can become a principal engineer, a team lead, an engineering director, and then a CTO.

There really is no limit to how much you can earn in this career.

The best part of it all is that it has to be one of the easiest careers to get into - you don’t need any qualifications!

I certainly didn’t have any, I got an apprenticeship after studying Finance, photography and science at A-levels (I don’t even have an IT GCSE).

Just to be clear, you don’t need an apprenticeship, I know many people who were able to self teach coding and have been able to get some of the best coding jobs.

I will be writing a step by step guide of how you can start getting into web development immediately, but until then here are a few links you may find helpful:
