Is the office making you feel claustrophobic? Would you rather spend more time outdoors? Are you looking for a change of scenery? If so, why not escape the office and consider these al fresco careers instead.
Most people love dogs, but owning a dog can have its drawbacks. Dogs don’t like to be left alone for long periods of time, and they need lots of exercises. If you have a pet pooch, and you work full-time, it can be tough to fit in regular walks and ensure that your pup gets all the love and fuss it deserves. Today, many of us have hectic lives, but this doesn’t stop us being avid dog lovers. Thanks to dog walkers and pet services, we can have a pet without worrying about them when we head off to work in the morning. If you’re an animal lover and you want to spend more time in the outdoors, becoming a dog walker may be an ideal option for you. You can choose your working hours, you get to spend time with cuddly creatures, and you’ll be getting loads of exercise in the fresh air. What more could you want? If this sounds appealing, look into similar services in your area, and see if there’s a demand. If you’re anxious about setting up on your own, you could contact other dog walkers and ask if they’re interested in taking on new recruits.
Do you fancy scaling the heights, learning new skills and offering a service that will benefit people on a daily basis? If so, looking for roofing jobs may be an idea. Roofers can be employed or self-employed, and you’ll come across a wide range of jobs on your travels. Roofing isn’t for everyone, and if you have a fear of heights, this probably isn’t the job for you. But if you love a challenge, and you’re keen to swap being inside for an outdoor job, there are lots of perks. If you’re self-employed, you have control of your hours, and if you establish a client base, running a business can be very lucrative. There’s also a demand for roofers, especially in the warmer months, so you shouldn’t have to worry about finding jobs.

You may have to work long hours in all conditions, but this is a very rewarding and enjoyable job.
Do you find yourself staring out of the windows when you’re at work? Are you bored of your current job or do you wish you could work in the fresh air? If so, why not give these suggestions some thought and switch the office for the great outdoors.
