    agree with @maternidade - I have worked at a few different ones, and they were considerably different ... so it all depends on which one

    I work for local gov in admin. I do a 5 day fortnight. they are really flexible. if I need to swap work days around if the kids are sick they are understanding. but I also think it will depend on your manager and job.

    I work in local government not in admin though. From what I've seen it depends on the managers, team leaders etc. it varies a lot even in the same council.

    I work for local government in the public library sector. I'm part time doing 19 hours per week over 2 days and every second Saturday morning. The organisation as a whole is very family friendly and my particular workplace is mainly made up of part-timers and mums.
