Does anybody have experience of manufacturing a move away from the workplace to work from home or in my case, a different location? Do I simply just present my ideas and tell them why this can work? Are there any drawbacks to asking? I would rather go about it this way as I do like my job and I would like them to give me that opportunity before I start gunning for various other roles within the industry I work within.
The reasoning is that I want to buy a house, but not in London, market prices elsewhere are attractive and the closer I get to 30, the more I want to move away and closer to my family up in the North West. I'm in my 7th year down here and there is not a massive requirement for me to work from the office and I am not enjoying the lifestyle as much as I was when I was in my early to mid 20 somethings. Of late, I have been returning home a lot more and I am start to feel the pull much more; family, beach walks and general slow down amongst other things. Hopefully this is not out of the ordinary and some of yourselves can offer up your experiences and advice. From my point of view, I do not want to feel like I am getting stuck in a rut because I am not enjoying where I live even though I am sure there are much more serious things going on in the world. Thank you in advance!
