As reliable access to technology and networking improves, allowing digital nomads to stay in touch and complete tasks while traveling and exploring new countries, the trend is set to grow. Ever since these independent ‘location’ workers have been in existence since the 80s, more corporate organisations have decided to take up their nomadic lifestyle, due to a variety of factors like location, cost, benefits and a whole lot more.

Digital nomads are on the lookout for highly flexible, short-term workspace options that provide them with a productive environment without tying them into a traditional workspace lease. A hot desk in a coworking space is the perfect solution, and there has been an increase in fully connected and equipped coworking spaces in key locations around the world to cater to these frequent travellers.

Nomads and creators are mostly looking for positions that are geared towards programming, at 20%. Consultant positions were the second-most requested, at 8%. Data entry processors followed this at 6%, sales managers at 4% and help desk staff at 3%.

Workcity Africa is a leading premium coworking space that brings startups and entrepreneurs together to collaborate, innovate and harness various skills that are geared towards financial prowess for the average startup. Workcity’s Digital Nomads Roundtable comes in, to create a collaborative community for Nomads in Lagos-Nigeria! with this event, nomads can finally have the chance to unite in person and bring about fresh new ideas for the tech world in a work space that is serene, central and most importantly, would do anything to make sure that they have the best of productivity.
