The global advances in technology have made remote working more feasible that it’s ever been before. There are now more than 4.6 million people registered as self-employed – the highest amount ever in the UK. Employers are beginning to open up to the idea of employees working remotely or hiring freelancers that live and work abroad.
There’s a definite growing trend for working and travelling, so here’s a few companies that have sprung up recently that can help fulfil your digital nomad dreams:
Nomad Pass gives professionals working across the globe access to co-working spaces. This is great if you are already travelling but finding you are getting a little isolated or want to meet other remote workers.
