The roles, often referred to as “blended” or “remote” positions, involve battling anti-social behaviour and cyber criminals.

And according to one government job, even immigration enforcement is partially WFH, like sleuth Sherlock Holmes.

The Sun found a £39,000 per year Home Office vacancy with recruiters Indeed for a job gathering intelligence on “gangs involved in organised immigration crime”.

The successful candidate is expected to attend the office 40 per cent of the time.

Another ad for a £32,798 role with North East Lincolnshire Council involved investigating “serious violent crime with “home and office working”.

And a £360-a-day WFH job with Momenta Group is being advertised to look into financial crime for a “major retail bank” on a purely “working from home” basis.

David Spencer at the Centre for Crime Prevention, gesê: “Provided people are given secure IT provisions, there’s no obvious objection to some crimes investigated remotely.”

Die Home Office gesê: “Flexible and hybrid working in the civil service has been common practice for some time.”
