Not every job requires a long commute every day! Modern technology has allowed for lots of jobs to be done from home. There is often no requirement on the worker to have to travel in order to sit at a desk with a computer and phone. Many companies in Ireland are beginning to facilitate this kind of work situation and most would agree that there are thousands in traffic every morning who could do their jobs from home if the companies were to facilitate it.
The number of work from home computer jobs has increased in recent years, with more companies becoming familiar with the concept and remote collaboration technology growing increasingly commonplace.
While many of these jobs—e.g., software developers, web designers, data engineers—tend to require advanced skills, there are plenty of easy, entry-level, work from home computer jobs out there.
It is likely that in the future there will be far more opportunities for this kind of work arrangement.
