Hi there

Thank you for taking the time to read my forum...

I was wondering where to find work from home online (legit ones) because of certain disabilities plus social phobia...

Many thanks...

    Hello there @Julie890 and welcome to the community, it's great to have you join :) 

    I know that you can tailor searches on a lot of job sites now, so that they only show results for 'remote work' or 'work from home', such as indeed, monster, and reed. You can also put in your preferred location, salary or type of job too.

    When searching for a job, one way you can check for legitimacy, or to help decide if you feel comfortable, is to make further enquiries with the organisation advertising the role. Speak to the recruiter or the HR department, or see if you can find the job advertised in more than one place.

    I hope the above is helpful for you, and do ask if you feel we can help any further :)

    Have you been able to check on any of those sites @Julie890?

    It's also worth remembering that some opportunities not advertise as purely remote do have the option of flexible working, which can include the opportunity to work from home. If you find an opportunity you're keen on, it can sometimes be worth enquiring about this 🙂

    I was also wondering whether you might be interested in accessing one of our employment services, such as Support to Work. Perhaps you could have a look into them, and let us know if you have any questions?

    Social anxiety and phobias can be difficult to manage, so I'm sorry to hear that you're affected by this. Are you receiving any support for your social phobia at the moment?
