    Default tell me about jobs that work well with family life e.g night shift jobs etc

    As the title suggests- what kind of roles would work well for me to do while still looking after my little one during the day. I am thinking hours close to 5pm to midnight would work well. I am not too bothered about pay. Editing to add- self employed type jobs considered.

    I'm a commercial cleaner and I start around 5. The work is easy enough and the pay is good. $24.49/h for casual.
