    Hi @bobby123 :) What kind of employment are you looking for (i.e. what industry, the type of work)? What kind of experience do you have? 

    Some jobs that were previously being advertised as non-remote roles are now being advertised as remote, either fully or partially. Have you tried using job sites like Indeed to search for jobs? Many of these sites how have an option to filter in jobs that are remote.

    That's true @woodbine, there are unfortunately some fake opportunities out there.

    Do you feel comfortable having a look on some job sites @bobby123? I'd also like to point you towards our employment services, which many people find helpful when thinking about getting into work.

    I'm sure that's given you some great experience for your CV @bobby123 :) Do you have any ideas on the area of work you'd like to get into?

    Anything as long as it's working from home, I don't mind taking a pay cut

    Hi @bobby123 Could you perhaps work part time and still do your present job and do all your report writing at home. If you are working at the moment have you spoken to your employer about making some adjustments to help you. Although because of the pandemic people are working at home you would have to be trained in anything else you do which would mean going into an office. Most working at home jobs are quite poorly paid like data inputting or selling, not I am sure what you would be looking for. Good luck in what ever you decide. If you want to chat about jobs just drop me a line and  I will help if I can. 
    I hav left that job now and am currently unemployed, I don't mind taking a pay cut but the work has to be working from home as my Crohn's is really bad.
