For many, Travel Homeworking represents the opportunity for that dream work/life balance.
No more commute. More time with the family. Less stress and a whole load more flexibility.
Which is all true.
What is also true is that the flexibility works both ways.
Every successful Travel Homeworker will be prepared to work at some very abnormal times and service their customers in some strange circumstances to get the job done.
We recently awarded a fun “Flash Prize” to the Holidaysplease Homeworker who had recently demonstrated the kind of super-service that earns our team a 9.8 out of 10 rating on Trust Pilot.
The Winner set her alarm clock for 02.55am to get up and pre-book extra leg room seats for clients the minute they were released by the Airline. A simple touch that meant a huge amount to our customer, which is why our team member was not prepared to wait until normal hours to get the job done.
And our Runner Up confirmed a last minute honeymoon from the beach in the pouring rain, whilst trying to stop 4 children running into the sea fully clothed and having to scramble up the rocks to get a mobile signal!
Of course Travel Homeworking can mean a better work/life balance. It’s just that the balance goes both ways, and to be outstanding as a Travel Homeworker, you will need to be prepared to stand out!
