I'm a support worker (carer) for people with disabilities. I have no qualifications in this area and just learnt on the job. (I'm in 'medium care')
I work 2 (27hour) shifts a week (you get to sleep at night) and bring home a minimum of $1000 a week after tax. (And we get 6 weeks annual leave a year.)
The job is so rewarding and the benefits are great!, I'm glad I fell into it!
When bubs arrives, I'll take leave for a bit but then go back FT. As I'll only be away 2 days, DP can stay home so no need for child care and I'll be there for 5days and nights every week
