Found 16th Feb 2009
I am struggling with ideas what to start studing in regards of decent income and availability for part time jobs as I have two very small kids (one is baby). I think this is a good time to get some qualifications for the latter stage when I'll need time for droping in and out of school and obviously wouldn't be able to go for full time job. I've got a bachelor degree in economy of telecommunications but never worked in this field. I've been in the retail bussines for years and was account manager in HN latest but this is not a job for mother so I would be gratefull for any ideas. I quite like drawing and sort of creating things but I can't think of anything around that

my mum did some work on the phones/PC handling prescriptions at a doctors, got a IT qualification out of it too.

did a few mornings a week.

How about teaching, fits in around school time perfectly... lol

maybe look at franchises - even if you don't end up buying into one it can give you ideas about setting up your own small business doing something similar.

Depending on where you are, look at mums in control and my mag as 2 examples.

hope this helps

im a creche worker it fits in perfect around my 2 kids and school.
what about working from home, you can also do courses on-line now too!
good luck

My wife and I have 4 kids, 2 girls, and twins boys, its was easy for her to work in a restaurant in the evening, and get tons of tips. Or work in a school or a service desk under british gas or first direct.

what about child minding
then you get paid for looking after other mums children while they work, you still get to spend time with your children,
your children will have other children to play with too.
you said you like being creative you can get creative with the children

i know it probably won't use your qualificaions-but a school secretary or dinnertime lady are easy not much hassle termtime only jobs-but not easy to come by.

I am lucky i have a termtime, two mornings a week job-but i have to say that although i enjoy it-it isn't really taxing-and if you've had a stimulating job, you will miss that.

I was happy to swap hassle and stress and the highs of achievement for taking my kids to the park & to tots groups etc for a few years.....really what i am saying is think hard about what you feel you can put into a job-don't stress yourself being pulled in loads of directions-they are only small once and if you are lucky enough to be able to enjoy some of it without having to work then make the most of it !

What about book-keeping, easy enough to do a simple course but it is all common sense. I am inundated with offers and on occasions do it for easy cash when in between contractors.

You can work from home so very flexible

do you need any specific qualifications about this. I am quite good with computers and have some bookkeeping knowledge but it is so boring :whistling:

for a dinner time lady common sense and a clean police record i think. Secretary-proably some computer skills?

I got my job because i had a teaching certificate-i was lucky-but often people just need proof you are reliable and will stick at a job for general work.

well I am still in a middle of nowhere. Tought about cake decorating but droped the idea. I don't want to be stuck at home all day everyday. Probably I have to compromise with the desire for a creative jod and go for something boring
