I have two children. 2y 5 months, and 7 months old respectively. I've been out of the workplace since I had eldest.
I've been approached about a two day a week job. Which I would be interested in if it was in 6 ish months time. But I don't want to put my 7 month old in childcare two days a week yet.
The employer has asked would I consider home working in the interim. In principal I'm really keen on it. I'm eager to get back into work at some point and two day a week jobs are like hens teeth so I don't want to let this pass me by.
Eldest goes to playgroup three mornings a week. My mum is able to help out one morning a week, which is one of the mornings eldest goes to playgroup. I was thinking of getting in a mothers help for the other two mornings she's at playgroup so I can do a bit of work then but not be away from my baby, if you know what I mean?
The work will probably be half quick emails, calls, letters etc which I can do while children are happy watching Disney etc, and the other half I will need to concentrate for periods of time, examine documents, write reports etc.
Am I being naive to think I can do this... Any experience of home working?
