Salamun Alaykum

I appreciate that you are working hard to get the Halal income.

If you work after office hours and the management and office rules have no problem with it, then you can work for someone else and get the money. But if the management and office rules do not allow anyone to work and use their office and things like electricity, computer etc, then this would be problematic and one will not be allowed to work in this scenario.

May Allah swt increase your Halal rizq.
