The companies that let you work from anywhere – and how much they pay

Which sectors are most likely to offer full remote jobs? Data from jobsite Adzuna showed the majority were in IT, public relations, and sales.Adzuna’s Paul Lewis said: “The rise of ‘work from anywhere’ is a response to shifting priorities and the demand for more. Since January 2021, we’ve seen steady increases in employers offering the perk, with big brands like Spotify pioneering the way.”Indeed, remote jobs at the streaming giant have an average salary of £43,861, according to job vacancy listings on Adzuna.Other big businesses with fully remote policies include vintage clothes marketplace Depop, charity Blood Cancer UK, apprenticeship platform Multiverse, founded by Sir Tony Blair’s son Euan, and nutritional shake maker Huel. Data published by Flexa Careers showed 6pc of advertised jobs in March were “fully remote”, while 19pc were billed as “remote first”.Among these was digital bank Zopa, which already allows employees to work 120 days a year from abroad, although it is considering increasing this to 130 days. Wise, formerly Transfer Wise, a foreign exchange firm, lets staff work from anywhere for 90 days a year once they have worked for six months.
