5 Remote Jobs For Moms Returning To The Workforce

It’s not easy for moms to return to the workforce after taking time away from their career to raise a family. Thankfully, there are plenty of remote work opportunities to help women reenter the workforce with confidence, allowing them to ease their way back into the working world while keeping work-life balance at the forefront.


Are you a mom looking to return to the workforce? Check out these five remote jobs that will help you bridge the gap between your last job and your next one.

1. Bookkeeping

As a bookkeeper, you’ll need be organized, detail-oriented, and have solid math and computer skills. Since a bookkeeping position lends itself well to remote work, you might work on a contract or freelance basis for small businesses or large companies. Some job titles you might have instead of "bookkeeper" include "accounting clerk," "sales manager," and "office assistant." If you have experience in the nonprofit, sales, client services, and accounting and finance industries, you’ll likely be a qualified bookkeeping candidate.

2. Call Center

This job is very similar to a job as a customer service representative, but with some key differences. A call center employee is strictly on the phone (like the title suggests) and you’ll have to think on your feet more. You not only could handle inbound calls from customers, but also outbound calls to business and organizations for marketing purposes, research surveys, or other B2B communications. Working in a call center is perfect for people who want to help others by finding solutions to meet customers needs, while also dipping their toes in sales.

Computer and IT jobs are in high demand, so moms looking to return to the workforce should have lots of remote opportunities to choose from in various tech industries, like information security, digital marketing, cloud solutions, business consulting, information companies, education, healthcare, communications, and media. If becoming an IT specialist, systems engineer or administrator, technical support specialist, IT security consultant, or quality analyst sounds enticing as a bridge job, go for it!

4. Education & Training

Enjoy working with people and helping them learn new things? A job in education and training might be perfect for you! In this type of job, you’ll act as a facilitator to learning by using classroom or virtual presentations or individual instruction to help students learn complex subjects. You’ll also plan, develop, and assign lessons, then evaluate students on their grasp of these lessons. There are plenty of education and training jobs out there for moms with a passion for education who might want to become a teacher, instructor, coach, tutor, curriculum developer, or paraprofessional.

5. Writing

Perhaps the most flexible job on this list, a writing job entails producing a wide variety of written materials, which are then delivered to an audience in numerous ways. As a writer, you’ll create content in different formats, depending on whether your job is more creative or technical. Some job titles you might have as a writer include copywriter, content manager, editor, blogger, reporter, columnist, and news writer or journalist. If you have talent for (and enjoy expressing yourself) through the written word, don’t overlook these careers!
