For a lot of people, working from home is a dream situation: you can mind children, avoid a tedious commute, get housework done in your breaks and even wear your pyjamas all day long.

But while a lot of companies now offer flexible working arrangements, working exclusively from home can be a difficult sell to a new employer.

However, that’s not the case for these 25 businesses.

According to analysis by flexible job seeker service FlexJobs, these companies are offering more remote-friendly positions than others, meaning job openings are for either 100 per cent, partial or optional remote work.
