This increased my trust towards this company and made me want to join.

So, do you want to work from home? Or want a part time job you can do along with your other tasks? Then keep reading as this review may be for you.

Arise Work From Home Opportunities

First of all and most importantly you need to know that you are not becoming a full or part time employee of Arise.

Arise is more of a home business opportunity.

They are actually offering you a business, not just self-employment.

When you join Arise, you’re an independent contractor – a lot like running your own little virtual call center.

As you’re an independent contractor, you don’t actually work for Arise.

They’re more like a middleman to help you get set up and then connect you with the people who’ll actually end up hiring you.

There are a list of companies you can join once you have passed the assessment with Arise and enrolled on board.

I will go through them in more detail below.

How Does Arise Work And How To Join

Arise work from home requirements

To begin with, you will need to have a few things in place before you can connect with your first customer.

1. First, you need to apply and pass a basic skills assessment check.

This is a fairly easy basic test and from what I can remember it gives you 2 attempts in case you need to redo it.

The questions are pretty basic and no revision in required.

2. Then you’ll need to get a background check done (costs around $8- $30 depending on which area or state you live in). My background check cost $30 (GBP25) as I am in the United Kingdom.

It took about 2 weeks to come through, however when you register for a background check they give you a reference number which can be entered into the Arise platform temporarily so you don’t have to wait 2 weeks to begin earning money.

Equipment required to qualify to work from home:

In addition, you’ll need the typical home office setup — a computer, headset, a registered landline and high-speed wired (not wireless) internet.

Have you got all these? Then you’re ready to start enrolling and choosing which company you want to contract for.

You’ll also need to set up a bank account to use for receiving your Arise payments.

Once you pass the assessment it’s all pretty easy from there on, you get to log in and choose an Arise Work From Home IBO (independent contractor company) who you want to work with and then start your training.

Arise Work From Home Training Cost

Yes, training does cost!

The initial training cost is around £30-£60 ($35 – $75).

The amount depends on what program you have chosen to service on.

I chose NPOWER. It’s an energy provider for gas and electricity in the UK.

The training to be enrolled on to this platform cost me £30 which included my 8 week training program and set-up to get me started in order to start earning revenue.

I personally was a little skeptical to pay for this training as I thought why should I pay upfront to be hired right? However the fee was for the trainers who take their time out to train you on the program you chose. Makes sense!

Arise Work From Home Salary

Following up from the training fee, Arise also deduct a £10 monthly usage charge for using their platform.

My first pay cheque was around £350 for the 2 weeks I had serviced.

Arise IBO’S pay you bi-monthly or if you don’t want to be paid bi-monthly you can opt for monthly instead.

This is all discussed in your contract when you get it.

So for £10 to be deducted from that, was no biggie for me.

I also remember getting an additional end of the month bonus after 4 weeks of working with the program as I hit my targets.

It was nice to see they don’t just pay you for your hours but also treat you like there contact center employees and give bonuses too.

What Type Of Work Does Arise Involve

Arise is mostly contact center call work.

You may be lucky depending on who’s recruiting on the time of your application if you can find other types of work such as data entry or web evaluator roles. However the majority is Inbound and maybe some outbound call work.

Large companies such as BT, Npower, eBay, Nestle, Interval Exchange, NCS and many more big names all contract with Arise to find people like us who want to work from home and earn.

Would I recommend Arise?


I am grateful I found this company to allow me to work from home and earn an income without having to leave home after leaving my full time employment.

The hours are fully flexible. 

Most contracts require a minimum 15 hours per week commitment. If you hit this requirement each week, your contract will continue rolling.

You can work anywhere between 15 – 60 hours per week depending on your availability.

You are also allowed to book time off whenever you don’t wish to service.

I remember I booked 4 weeks off as I was moving home and had no broadband, Arise is fully flexible like that.

They pay bi-monthly so you don’t have to wait too long until your next payday – added bonus wouldn’t you say?

If you’re ok with inbound calls this will be a breeze for you, the process to get started wasn’t painful and it was fairly easy to learn the training.

Not rocket science taking calls hey!

No prior experience is required so even if your new into the call center world, don’t be scared that you’ll apply and get rejected, they train you fully.

Here’s the link if you want to have a browse around on their website, you may decide if this is for you and give it a go: best of luck!

  4. I read your review about Arise. Exactly how flexible are the work hours? Do I have to tell them my hours ahead of time or can I just log on when I’m available to work, and log out when I need to?

    1. Hey Adriana, you can book your hours upto a night before your scheduled to work. However best is to book as soon as the hours are released which are a week in advance, that way you will get full choice of what hours you wish to do. Booking last minute will result in only left over hours left.

      Hours are flexible, minimum requirement is 15 hours per week.

      If the slot you wish to do is available during that time of day you can book and begin working straight away. Aslong as you meet the 15 hour minimum requirement for the week its all good:)
