Work-At-Home Jobs for Parents in Australia

For many busy working families, it just doesn’t add up. Child care and vacation care costs, especially when there’s multiple children, can often outweigh the benefits of having a second money-earner in the household.

In fact, new reports show that child care costs in Sydney and Brisbane are the highest they have ever been, with out of pocket fees rising again sharply.

The national CPI figures released in late-January indicate that in the December quarter, child care costs increased in every state except Victoria.

According to website Women’s Agenda, Brisbane out of pocket child care costs are now 3.2% higher than they were in June 2018, and a staggering 28% higher than May 2015.

“In Sydney, out of pocket child care costs are 2.7% higher than last year and 20% higher than when the child care reforms were flagged in 2015,” the article said.

At a time when more people are joining the unemployment queue, it’s no surprise that the working from home trend is looking increasingly appealing as we head further into 2021.

Work from Home as a Laundry Lady – Cut the commute & child care fees

Insights from job platform Seek showed more than 30 percent of people were working from home in mid-2020.

While this was a result of workplace closures due to COVID-19 and social distancing measures, it also reflects the common desire to seek a better work-life balance.

By utilising the home office, parents are able to eliminate child care, before and after school care fees from their budget; take their children to school; cut the commute; and attend sports days and extra-curricular activities.

If you, like many other Australians, are tired of the day care & vacation care juggling act, and dreaming of a more flexible career, a work from home business opportunity could be for you.
