Creative and crafty jobs


We've spoken to a variety of Mums and Dads running their own business where they make something - everything from handmade cards to chocolates! They have all told us their story - what inspires them to be creative, how they have set up in business and most importantly how it fits round family life.


Direct Selling and Mystery Shopping

Direct selling only requires a very modest initial investment to start your own business - often less than £100. A bargain when you consider the average start up cost for a small UK business working from home is around £5,000. Your direct selling investment usually includes a range of the products, catalogues and other material.

Something Completely Different

There are probably job opportunities available that you've never heard of or considered. Be open minded and consider everything, you never know, you may have an ideal career ahead of you that you haven't known about until now.
