    How much is your rent? Is there much else around which is a lot cheaper?

    There are heaps and heaps of jobs where you can work part time. Aged care, babysitting/childcare, retail, cleaning, admin, Coles or Woolworths.. that's just off the top of my head

    I pay $260 a week, I am struggling. I want to get a smaller place that's cheaper. The kids can share a room.

    When I first went back to work it was 2 days/week at dd's daycare then I was first in line for more days as they came up so I was then able to work more as more came up. Worth trying for at least relief work, you will still be better off working than not working.

    Surely centrelink can help. They can register you at a job agency and the agency will then help with a resume and help find jobs for you or get you to do courses in a field that interests you at no cost. Just talk to centrelink about it.

    Cassie, no advice re: centrelink etc but have you considered before/after school care? you could probably get 7-9am, 3-5-5:30pm on that day and you could take Nathan with you then drop him at day care, have the middle of the day to relax/run errands and then work in the afternoon and pick Nathan up in the afternoon or when you're finished?

    Good luck with that! If someone is a "primary carer" they are classified as voluntary job seeker, not unemployed. You will be lucky to get an appointment before the youngest is 6, and even after that they are not much help because they get more funding for the long-term childless unemployed, and if they have learning difficulties, addictions, mental illness, poor grasp of the English language or other barriers, that is who their time goes on, not primary caregivers with any kind of work history.

    Seriously though, daycare centres are always after relief workers.

    It really is like this^^. You can still sign up voluntarily but the job network will access you as having a low need for help and will do nothing for you.
    They really aren't any help.

    A job network will help with resumes, job application and interview tips and whatnot.

    Don't you need to be signed up to a job network to receive the CCR (or studying etc)? That's what CL told me.

    No. you just need to be working, studying or looking for work.
