    I'm a physio in the public sector, and love it :-) I am currently working full time 8-4.30, but did reduced hours when my kids were younger. Great working conditions, salary sacrifice, leave loading, reasonable rate of pay. It's full on, and emotionally and physically challenging (I am currently in rehab), but I really enjoy it. Happy to answer any questions :-)

    Anything hospital based will involve shifts unfortunately. Podiatry has a shortage and community based would be pretty good hours.

    Nursing doesn't have to be shift work. Ive been a nurse for 13 years. I only spent 2 yesrs in then hospital system then did other things ( remote nursing so that won't work for you!) . But since having DD who is now 5 I have not done any shift work. I worked as a vaccination nurse at a service where all the MCHN are based. I then coordinated a health service run from a gp clinic. I sometimes do casual shifts at our local hospital because the money is so good. There a r e lots of options to avoid shift work. Better than hospital based. You would have the issue of having to do your grad year though....but nursing can work. My friend was in a similar situation and went straight into community nursing on a great salary.

    I'm a scientist. I studied environmental management and chemistry. Now I work in a lab doing shift work, so impossible as a single parent unless you have help (I have my parents).

    I'm a pathology collector. I work in a day hospital. It can get pretty boring when you don't have any patients. I did on the job training and then they paid for me to do my cert 3 in pathology. I work 65 hours a f/n (when I'm not on mat leave) and I earn around $1200 per f/n, I'm perm part time so you'd get more if you were casual and different pathology companies pay different rates. I work from 830 am - 330 pm Monday - Friday.

    Coming back to say my actual role at the moment is an Analytical Chemist specialising in Water- I have a B. Sc and majored in chem and pharm

    I work based on flex time so can start between 7-10 am and finish between 3:30-6:30 pm.
    My workplace is happy for me to work part time which is currently 4, 7.5 hour days but will at some point be 5, 6 hour days.
    My workplace is pretty flexible but hard to get into
