But is it possible to earn a decent living without having to leave the house? The good news is the answer to that is yes and it might be easier than people think.

Google search data shows that the overall demand for remote jobs is increasing over time, reaching its highest point ever in June, even higher than during the COVID-19 lockdown.

The good news is that working from home doesn’t mean a pay cut – in fact people can earn more than £100,000 per year without having to fork out for petrol.

Express.co.uk spoke to experts at career website salary.co.uk and asked them what the best paid remote jobs are in the UK.

Top of their list was a nutritionist – although you’ll need a degree in nutritional science, dietetics, or another relevant field such as human physiology or biochemistry.

However, not all well paid jobs require a degree in chemistry – property appraisers can earn £40,000 for valuing someone’s home.

Jonathan Rawlins, head of data at Check-a-Salary told Express.co.uk: “If you are wanting to have a top high paying job with the ability to work from home, studying either finance, law or computer science will give you the best chance.

“There are a large number of sales roles which pay substantially above the national average of approximately £31,000.”

He continued: “Certain sales roles do not require degrees, just the right attitude to close deals.

“Where jobs can be done from home, it appears they are generally being paid more than in office roles.”

Mortgage advisors and sales advisors can also work from home and don’t necessarily require a degree.

The average salary for these roles tops £45,000 and appears to be a little higher for those who don’t go into the office.

The top 10 jobs which don’t necessitate a degree according to Salary Checker are:

  • Property Appraiser
  • Mortgage Advisor
  • Territory Sales Manager
  • Payroll Manager
  • Customer Success Manager
  • Partnership Manager
  • Sales Manager
  • Account Director
  • Talent Director
  • Business Development Manager

  • Entrepreneur – choose something one is passionate about

  • Video games tester – A website was recently inundated with applications for a retired video game tester
  • Craftpreneur – perfect for pensioners looking for a bit of extra income
