The benefits of side hustles

Have you ever thought about turning your hobby into a side hustle?


From being a musician in a band to renting out your spare room on Airbnb, there are numerous benefits to pursuing side hustles.


Side hustles have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially among Gen Z. According to a global survey by Kantar in February 2023, 40% of Gen Z workers now have two or more roles. And so, our partners at Career Academy have recently published a new blog post detailing what are some of the benefits when pursuing a side hustle…


Firstly, a side hustle can help you think like an entrepreneur, which is highly valued by employers. It demonstrates your ability to embody a start-up mentality and think creatively. This experience can enhance your employability and be used as a strong example in interviews or applications.


In addition:


A side hustle can bring balance and fulfilment to your life. Pursuing your passions alongside your main job can lead to personal growth and overall satisfaction. Even voluntary roles can provide training, networking opportunities, and confidence-building experiences, which can boost your long-term work prospects.


Financially, side hustles can be lucrative, especially for sales-minded individuals. Some work-from-home selling roles offer high earning potential, and the experience gained can contribute to advancement in your primary career. Plus, side hustles can widen your potential and open doors to new career opportunities.


There are multiple benefits of side hustles, so make sure to read the full blog post on the Career Academy website here.

Moxie and Mettle is a UK-based recruitment company; our clients are based in the UK too. Although many clients offer remote working as an option, there is still a need to regularly visit company offices and clients in the UK. Therefore, applications from overseas are unlikely to be successful, unless applicants already have plans to be in the UK several times a month/year to facilitate meetings with both the teams and clients.
