Your side hustle starts here

Posted on 14 Sep, 2020

Working on reduced hours or reduced pay at home? Top up your income by becoming a Viewber, taking on assignments when it suits your schedule.

The phrase ‘I’ve just got to nip into the office’ has taken on a whole new meaning in 2020!

For almost 50% of professionals, the office has become the dining room, spare bedroom or even the shed at the end of the garden. WFH – working from home – has become our new normal and it looks set to stay in some form.

As a result, thousands of professionals are discovering that WFH gifts them extra time and new found flexibility, with reduced commutes, fewer distractions and freedom to organise office hours around their home life.

While there are benefits to WFH – type away in your tracksuit, if you like – there are some downsides to working life in the Covid landscape. Many professionals have been asked to take a pay cut or reduced their hours, making a dent in their finances.

 

Start your side hustle with Viewber

Perhaps now is the time to think about a local-to-home side hustle? A report by Henley Business School back in 2018 found 40% of UK workers ran a separate business or took on a second job alongside their main employment. Half of those running a side hustle undertook extra work because they need the money. We are sure that figure is rising.

While you could make face masks, become a delivery driver or start selling home-made jam, WFH puts you in the perfect position to become a Viewber. We have a network of thousands of people who accompany buyers, tenants, landlords and trades on property visits in their local area. Their proximity, knowledge and insights as a native are an invaluable commodity, and they provide a vital overflow service for estate agents, auctioneers and investors. Most importantly, Viewbers only take bookings where their free time and family allows.

Say yes, but only when it suits your schedule

“Becoming a Viewber doesn’t have to be a full-time job – far from it,” says Viewber’s Ed Mead.

“Many Viewbers already have a part or full-time job, using Viewber to earn extra when they can. There are no set hours to fulfill or a minimum commitment but a sense of freedom to make yourself available when you have a spare hour or two. That could be during the day, in the evening or at weekends. And Viewbers always retain control – they can decline jobs if a work commitment crops up and block out their diary so they’re shown as ‘unavailable’.”

Becoming a Viewber is a great way to top up income or fill in gaps. If time is of the essence, Viewbers can set their working catchment to a really small area so they’re only meeting and greeting in the immediate area where they live, although the catchment can be widened if their availability and circumstances change.

It’s busy, so sign up today

We are looking for new Viewbers to join our community as the market is buoyant. Requests to view properties are rising, as people want to complete moves before the stamp duty holiday ends and seek an immediate lifestyle change.

All we ask is that you’re professional, polite and good with face-to-face interactions. Property experience is desirable but not necessary, although we do ask that you’re comfortable with being vetted, as we like to keep our standards high.

In return for becoming a Viewber, you’ll get paid a fair fee per job, receive full training from our management team and gain the support of Viewber’s friendly online community. You can read up on the application process here but feel free to get in touch to talk over any specifics.
