Where to work (from home)?
The government's 'levelling up' agenda played a significant role in the recent Queen's Speech. New research indicates that changing employment patterns may well be providing a kickstart.
22 out of the top 25 remote worker hotspots are outside of London and the South East, of which 10 are in so-called ‘Red Wall’ areas.
Job adverts offering the flexibility to work remotely have tripled compared to pre-pandemic levels in the top ranked so-called 'Zoom towns', creating new opportunities for high streets and local economies.
Societal changes in employment patterns are also likely to impact future housing patterns. Those looking to change jobs may opt for a longer commute on 'office' work days rather than relocating lock stock and barrel.
