How to work from home in Valencia?
There are many reasons why you may have come to this post: maybe you are unemployed, maybe you want to generate some extra income, or maybe you want to become a digital nomad. Well, whatever the reason, welcome: working from home in Valencia is a good option and in this post we are going to tell you all the details you need to know to get the most out of the experience.
The best thing we have to tell you is that there are more and more opportunities to work remotely from any part of the world you choose. Whether it’s for companies that offer this type of work or as a freelancer.
Another interesting fact is that most of the jobs in this modality in Valencia do not require a high degree of knowledge, specialisation or previous experience. What’s more, we could say that they are scalable jobs in which you start at the bottom of the ladder and work your way up according to your merits. This is because the City Council of Valencia is currently subsidising many companies, with the aim of turning the city into a pilot location for telework.

What are the advantages of working from home?
OK, we are sure that almost everyone will agree with us that the best thing about working from home is the sense of freedom. However, it is by no means the only pro of this modality.
From wherever you want and however you want. Teleworking will give you the possibility to turn any place into your office and that can be a real advantage. For this reason, digital nomads are becoming more and more common.
But you will need to be a disciplined person. You will have to be a disciplined and organised person, otherwise, by the time you realise it, your working day will be over and you will still be deciding on the best position to place your computer.
Times you want
You make it, you eat it.
In reality, this is not entirely true, because your new company will most likely set a timetable. That is to say, although you will be able to organise yourself in your own way – something very, very cool and favourable, if we are talking in terms of efficiency – you will have to be available for certain hours or specific times of the day, as required by the productive activity in question.
Not only will you avoid wasting time commuting to and from work, but you will also save money on your car’s petrol or public transport costs. In addition, if you have a split working day and you have to take a meal out of your home, this new method would also mean savings in this respect.
Although these are just some of the examples, we encourage you to take a look, you will surely find many other avoidable costs of conventional work.
What is a digital nomad?
First of all, it is important to be clear about the concept of “digital nomad”. When we make this reference we are talking about those people who are looking for a solution to their desire to be able to travel to other countries while continuing to work at the same time.
Well, this is probably the most aspirational definition, but we can simplify it to a type of worker who does not fix a domicile and regularly changes location depending on their personal situation.
Contrary to the widespread conception of digital nomads, not all digital nomads are entrepreneurs and have their own online business. Although it is true that this scenario is becoming increasingly common, there are actually two types of professionals who work from home -just like those who work in person-: the self-employed and the employed.
