Finding a job that fits in with family life is not easy

For many women going back to work after having a baby can be quite a challenge. The cost of childcare can be astronomical and unless the job you are in is well paid you may well ask yourself whether it is worthwhile working for a small amount whilst paying someone else to look after your child.

An ideal solution to this dilemma is to find a way to work from home so that you can be at home with your young child and also earn a wage. Perhaps you have a skill that could be adapted to enable you to work in this way such as secretarial skills or marketing. These jobs could be carried out at home on a computer with meetings organised to coordinate work via online conference calls.

There may be a hobby that you have that can be used to earn a wage from such as sewing, baking or playing an instrument. Many people would be interested in employing someone to make or alter clothes or make celebration cakes and as long as you advertise your business well this type of business can be a success. If you are a musician, you could promote yourself as a music tutor teaching both children and adults to play a musical instrument.
