What Are The Best Remote Jobs For Nomads?

As the world becomes increasingly digitised, remote working is more popular than ever. In fact, an incredible 86% of Australian office workers now wish they could work from home at least once a week. According to another study, more than half of us would take a pay-cut to receive this greater flexibility at work – suggesting that most Australians prize their quality of life over their bank balance.

Remote workers – otherwise known as digital nomads – are able to travel the world while making a living from their phones or laptops. It’s a lifestyle which offers the ultimate work-life balance. So how can you turn this national dream into your reality?

In this post, we’ve put together a list of the best remote jobs for nomads. Whatever skills your have, you’re sure to find something here that will inspire you to wave goodbye to the 9-5 for good.

Trading on the stock market

Beginning to trade on the stock market may seem a little intimidating if you’ve never tried it before. But if you play your cards right, buying and selling shares can be a great way to earn money every day as a nomad.

Start by doing your research using a MetaTrader guide or an introduction to the stock market. This will help you to choose a reputable online stock broker. It’s a good idea to follow the stock market before actively trading, to familiarise yourself with economic trends as well as the specialist vocabulary used.

Once you’re confident enough to start, you’ll have access to a marketplace which has made investors into millionaires. You might not make your fortune, but you’ll learn valuable trading skills which you can put to use for the rest of your life.


Blogging is by far one of the most popular jobs for digital nomads. In fact, there are more than 500 million blogs currently online, which publish a staggering 2 million blog posts every single day!

To say it’s a saturated marketplace is an understatement. But it’s still possible to create a blog that really stands out – and if you manage it, becoming a blogger is one of the most fulfilling remote careers.

Online language tutor

To teach English as a second language (ESL), you don’t need to meet your pupils in person. Today, there’s a huge number of ESL opportunities online which enable you to teach remotely using video software. As long as you have a reliable internet connection, you can teach from anywhere in the world!

Globally, more than 1.5 billion people are learning English. Whether you choose to sign a contract with a large teaching company that will take care of the logistics for you, or set up your own company, teaching enables you to fund your nomadic lifestyle without the sense of isolation that can come from working remotely.

Virtual assistant

This role is as varied as it sounds. From sending emails and posting on social media, to booking your employer’s appointments, a virtual assistant is one of the most flexible jobs out there. Choose whether you want to work full-time, part-time, or freelance, and enjoy the stability of an office job from the comfort of wherever you wish to work.
