So, why #twomorehours?
Did you know, the average commute in the UK is now around one hour per day? So if you’re working full time, you could well be spending at least 5 hours per week just sitting in your car or on the bus or train, getting to work. And the TUC estimates that around 3.7m of us are spending a whopping two or more hours each day commmuting.
If you’re a parent, that’s 5-10 hours a week spent away from our children. Plus five to ten more hours of childcare to pay for, on top of travel costs. Commuting can also be stressful and boring – and it’s bad for the environment too.
So, if you’re about to start job-hunting, or you want to reboot your career after a break, have you thought about looking for a role that you can do remotely? Working from home cuts out the commute, saving you time and money. It also means more time for the things you love, and a better work-life balance.

It can be hard to find genuinely remote jobs on big-name job boards. And lots of Mums and others we’ve spoken to still see remote working as a perk that’s only available once you’ve been in a job for a while (if at all.)
That’s where myworkhive comes in. Employers who list on myworkhive’s job board really get the value of home based working, and are proud to offer it – not just as a perk, but from the start.
Around 4m people in the UK now work mainly from home, so it’s not that unusual any more.
The range of remote jobs is growing all the time (here’s some of our favourites).
The technology is all there to make it work. Even better, employers are realising that remote teams are happier and more productive – plus it saves money on office space, too. So it’s win-win.
So if you’re ready to reignite your career, we’ve teamed up with The Balance Collective to offer this fab prize to help you on your way…
