Bevis England works, though his company Telework New Zealand, to help organisations, governments, communities and individuals prepare for and take advantage of change.

The work of Telework New Zealand includes implementing and managing "telework" programmes, policies and strategies -- for both Government and employers. The company has evolved from a long interest in flexible work environments (including telework) and its many benefits. This interest initially (1989-93) took the shape of a network for self-employed people working at home but now involves a fully-featured business consultancy, government advice and policy, and a variety of partnerships and projects. Telework New Zealand supports policy makers and business leaders as they seek to make sense out of the future and its implications, gain from the many benefits available, and implement practical, achievable strategies.

Bevis England worked in Government and in magazine editing and freelance writing before setting up a public relations consultancy in 1987.  Telework New Zealand became a full-time business in 1997.  Bevis was made Mayoral Ambassador for Information Technology for Waitakere City in 2002 and became a member of Citrix Online's global Web Commuting Council in early 2009.
