Flexible work, remote positions, and telecommuting arrangements are proliferating across industries, but according to FlexJobs, five job categories in particular are experiencing particularly quick growth in terms of flex work:

According to FlexJobs analysis, each of these categories saw more than 50 percent growth in the number of flexible job listings between July 2015 and June 2016.

Brie Reynolds, senior career specialist at FlexJobs, says that these five categories are all career fields where the work being done really lends itself to flexible work options.

A lot of the work being done in jobs in government, project management, engineering, communications, and travel/hospitality is done with remote-friendly technologyover phone, email, and online, Reynolds adds.

While companies in these categories have been utilizing flexible work options for years, Reynolds notes that theU.S.government has been particularly enthusiastic in championing flexible work.
