"Seasoned professionals looking for remote work are oftentimes surprised by the variety of remote jobs that match their experience and career-level. Making a great salary when you’re at the top of your career doesn’t have to be done from an office," said Sara Sutton Fell, founder & CEO of FlexJobs.
BOULDER, Colo. (PRWEB) June 05, 2018
There are a number of misconceptions about remote work, such as that remote jobs do not pay well and are only appropriate for lower skilled workers. The truth is that the average telecommuter is 46 years of age or older, has at least a bachelor’s degree, and earns a higher median salary than an in-office worker. To demonstrate that remote jobs are available and appropriate at the executive level and to educate people about the professional remote job market, FlexJobs has identified 12 executive-level remote jobs currently hiring. Executive-level refers to jobs with department head responsibilities, such as director, VP and C-level titles.
Data from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics report indicates some 24% of U.S. workers did part or all of their work remotely. Of those, workers in managerial and professional occupations were more likely than workers in other occupations to do some or all of their work at home.
“Remote jobs are definitely not confined to entry-level jobs or even mid-career positions,” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “Seasoned professionals looking for remote work are oftentimes surprised by the variety of remote jobs that match their experience and career-level. Making a great salary when you’re at the top of your career doesn’t have to be done from an office, especially as more and more companies integrate remote workers into their standard business model,” concluded Sutton Fell.

They all offer some type of telecommuting arrangement, ranging from some telecommuting to 100% telecommuting and limited travel. Some of the common executive-level remote job titles include Director, Executive Director, Vice President, Medical Director, and various C-level jobs such as COO, CFO, and CEO.
