Armagh Jobs: Six physical roles for the active candidate

Over the last few years, the working from home model has seen a rise in popularity – with employees and employers alike. But it’s not a one size fits all. Just as some people are not built for the sedentary lifestyle of the office worker, some roles can by their nature, be physically demanding and require workers who are prepared to roll up their sleeves.

There are many jobs that let you stay active, with the most obvious being in construction and maintenance. There are also less obvious active forms of employment to be found in waste management, healthcare, retail and hospitality which all come with physical requirements.

Here are six roles with Armagh Jobs that are ideal for the active candidate:
