    I'm a communications consultant with the govt and I enjoy my job but it has it's ups and downs depending on who the manager is at the time. Good family friendly hours and flexibility all supported by an EBA so managers can't pick and choose who can access flexibility.

    I'm a cleaner. Not something I'd recommend at all. I hate it.

    High school teacher before having my daughter. I'd like to be doing a bit of teaching at the moment but our situation makes it tricky.

    I wouldn't say I love it. I love SOME aspects of it - mostly with regard to some of the more "difficult" kids. The paperwork, planning, meetings, marking, follow-ups though.... there's no way I want to do it full time in future.

    Ideally I'd like to move into something more linguistics-based. I'd love to study speech pathology but it doesn't have the best job prospects. Possibly specialised literacy teaching? Not sure.

    I'm admin in a University. Love my team but my job is not very stimulating. Training to be a secondary teacher at the moment.

    I'm a beauty therapist.

    I do enjoy my job a lot... I would love to be able to do more make-up jobs (I'm a qualified make-up artist too, but getting a job doing that alone is difficult, especially if you've got family commitments) and a lot more brow work. If I only focused on the face, I would be thrilled.

    Hey ozey - can I ask about your nightfill job? What are the hrs like? Was it easy to get the job? I am looking into this instead of going back to my old job so I can still see my kids during the day

    I'm a Nuclear Medicine scientist. I enjoy my job, I work in my own department in a large imaging practice. It's nice being part of a team, yet working autonomously
    Having said that, the field is very small and there are a lot of uni grads that are unable to gain employment...so I probably wouldn't recommend it at this time, (unless you were very passionate about NM!)

    I'm a pool operator, swim teacher and mother of 5 and I adore it all. Before the pool I was a personal trainer, group fitness manager and instructor and I adored that too.

    I have been extrremely blessed and lucky.
