I am currently looking for administrative work which I can do from home part time.  I am currently on maternity leave with my 5mth old baby boy and am due to return to part time employment from next month, however worried that financially we won't be able to cope.  Returning to full time employment at the moment is just not possible with my daughter starting school next week and the price of childcare outweighing what I would be earning.
I have extensive experience with Accounts, Data Entry, Typing/Transcription/Digital Dictation, Invoicing, Debt Collection and Secretarial duties.  
Does anyone know of any work going in the Brisbane area to help bring in extra funds?

suncorp were looking for people to work from home - had to be 20 mins from Carindale or something like that - it was on seek.com.au
they had set hours though, which may not suit.

Also, there is something on Stay at Home mum you can keep an eye on.

If you're any good with social media, i.e., monitoring facebook/twitter/instagram comments and stuff, you could find a load of those jobs going where you can work from home watching, responding, emailing approbate depts with those.

Virtual assistant? just google, there are a few sites around or you could start your own.

I have my own business and work from home sometimes. I always still arrange care for my children though as I don't believe it is possible to work efficiently and effectively with little ones in tow.

Occasionally - sure - but as a regular thing - I doubt an employer would go for it.

I agree splashing Rainbows.  My kids are in CC too.  I have my own freelance business and work from home and at clieint sites.  I always have my kids in cc when I work from home; today being the exception as client asked for additional work to be completed on the one day I don't work

Where do you find these jobs?  I have a friend who would be perfect at this

I do a lot of work from home but virtually none of it billable while the kids are at home with me and awake. I will monitor emails and I have my phone on me, but mostly I work from home when they're asleep at night.

Just my experience, but it is really hard to work at home with kids. On the odd occasion when I have to, I get frustrated and they get frustrated. No one is happy!

But if you can get work you can do after hours from home, that might be a good option.

I'm expecting my first baby in June 2017 and would give anything for a work from home opportunity. My current job is casual so I won't be able to get maternity leave. I write children's books in my spare time which is why I only work casually. Hopefully I'll be able to get one published and have a best seller!

Hi :)

I'm expecting my first baby in June 2017 and would give anything for a stay at home job opportunity!
My job is casual so I won't get maternity leave. I'm not particularly happy in my work anyway. I write children's books on my non work days so hopefully I get published one day and have a best seller!
