Broadly speaking, Britain's homeworkers are mostly employed in the service sector. From computer programmers, music teachers and beauty therapists, most support the needs of the country's primary workers.
Wherever we looked in the UK, child welfare was easily the largest cohort. Childminders, teachers and tutors are responsible for over 25% of the insurance quotes we provide for homeworkers. Health care workers such as physiotherapists, psychologists and healthcare consultants, also make up a large proportion of homeworkers on our books.
There are some regional variations though. homeworkers in Southern England seem to be more focussed on health, with 3 out of 10 providing some kind of medical or healthcare service. Wales also stands out for having the most music teachers per head.
Scotland on the other hand, has a higher proportion of programmers and IT workers than any other region, perhaps showing that the Scottish government's recent investments in internet infrastructure and family friendly working are beginning to bear fruit.
