After teleworking between 2 and 5 days a week for the last few years,
I now work from home full time, in rural cornwall. In some roles I've
had more communication in a day with other people while at home than
I've had in a week at the office.

I'd jump at a reasonably paid role that mixes teleworking with the
good comunication that it takes to make it work. Well.. maybe not jump
- but I'd look pretty damned hard at it.
