After 7 years out of the workforce (with a few small stints contracting) my partner is trying to return to work. She's a civil engineer but has a lot of experience in procurement and contract management.
The catch: as a parent of three, the costs of putting the kids into extended day care and after school care makes working more than 2 days a week a case of diminishing returns.
What kind of jobs are there that either are WFH flexible hours (can be up to 35hrs/fortnight) or two days a week onsite? 8-4-ish. And not a sex line or skimpy swimwear.
My sister in law had a contract gig cleaning for $50/hr about 6 hours a week, that was actually pretty great job because as long as the building was cleaned on Friday night/Saturday morning and again Sunday night or Monday early, then it was fine. I actually did it for her for several months when she got injured.
Would it be better to start some kind of busines? Making websites or something?
I need your ideas!
