Education and healthcare are among the top industries represented on this list. The jobs these companies are hiring for range in experience from entry-level through senior-level management and have varied educational requirements.
Some employers offer benefits to part-time employees, such as health insurance coverage, paid time off, flexible schedules, education stipends, etc.
Why Part-Time, Work-from-Home Jobs Help People’s Lives
At FlexJobs, we see a variety of people looking for part-time work, such as working parents, caretakers, people with health issues or disabilities, military spouses, millennials, semi-retirees, career changers, and people simply seeking better work-life balance.

Professional part-time work can allow you to:
- Continue in and/or advance your career while also having more time to focus on your life outside of work
- Allow you to explore new industries or career paths without a full-time schedule commitment
- Keep your resume current and evolving even if you don’t want or can’t have a full-time job
- Grow your professional network
- Supplement income during summer or holiday breaks
- Help transition to retirement
- Pursue passions outside of your chosen profession
For example, one of our part-time job seeker success stories is Shellene C. from Baltimore, Maryland. She has been a caregiver for a loved one with a severe disability. By using FlexJobs, she found a part-time, remote job as a mental health therapist—and the flexibility she needs professionally and personally.
“I am able to work from home instead of waiting for clients to come to an office,” Shellene told us. “Also, if my loved one becomes ill, which has happened twice this year, I am still able to work from home.”
Part-time, work-from-home jobs are particularly attractive to a talent pool of educated and highly skilled job seekers who don’t necessarily fit the in-office, 9-to-5 mold. And for anyone who needs a second source of income, working from home part-time allows them to gain this without adding a second commute or more long hours in the office. Flexible jobs like part-time and remote jobs can also help reduce stress and improve health. According to the latest FlexJobs survey on work-life balance, 97% say a flexible job would have a positive impact on their personal life and 88% say it would decrease their levels of stress.
Whatever your reasons for seeking a part-time job, it is absolutely possible to find opportunities that also offer remote work. FlexJobs is here to help you land a great part-time, work-from-home job!
