‘Education’ is a sector that has always been remote-friendly, with teachers able to work from home or office; but the latest ONS figures show an enormous rise in remote jobs in this area, so much so that it now makes up 11% of all roles in the sector.

The 2020s are the decade of work-from-home jobs, according to recent data from LinkedIn Economic Graph researchers.
