    Default Best Careers/Jobs for Mums

    I'm a teacher and it's great because I won't need to find childcare during school holidays etc.

    I know teaching is out because you can't afford to study etc, but have you thought about becoming a teacher aide?

    I'm not sure what the salary is, sorry.

    I was a vet nurse, but gave it up when I chose to become pregnant with my first, as working with animals is often not a safe environment for a pregnant woman to work in, plus the pay was low and the hours were funny.

    I went and got myself a government office job. It's boring as batsh!t, but works brilliantly around the kids, is very easy work, very safe for pregnancy (have worked up to 39 weeks through both and will again this time) and fantastic for saving for the future (government work makes fantastic super contributions). The leave entitlements are fantastic, and you're fairly secure in your job.

    Security is an industry that is going through the roof. You could do patrols at night while your children sleep or work at licenced venues on weekends when your partner is at home. This negates the need for child care. There are tafe level courses for security officers.

    I am an accountant and I HATE the hours now that I am a mother.

    If I had my time again, I would do something thing Occupational Therepy or Nursing, both allow easily for part-time and well paid weekend/ night shifts.

    I think both of these rely on study though. You could always do your study through HELP assisstance and pay it back once your in your chosen profession and earning over the threshold.

    Good luck!

    Caz, I did my Cert III Business Admin while pg to #3 and am looking to do the medical and legal reception subjects early next yr.. How did you go finding a job/getting into and settling? I'm curious because it's what I'll be doing when ready to go back.
