2019 Guide For Mums Returning To Work

After being a stay-at-home mum while raising your family, you’re ready to return to work, but you don’t want to return to your previous position.

Instead, you want a job that is flexible where you can choose your own hours, and also pays well. But where do you find these opportunities?

Use this simple step-by-step guide to find the most suitable career for mums returning to work!

1. Do Your Research

Before jumping in to any job, it’s important to do your research, learn about your chosen industry, and find potential real-job outcomes!

Brainstorm Ideas

  • What do I love doing?
  • How can I make this into a product or service?
  • Is there a need for it?
  • Is this product or service practical?

Learn about the industry

  • Look into market trends
  • Find your target market
  • Research the industry and market saturation
  • Analyse your competitors (high vs. low, small vs. big brands)
  • Do a SWOT analysis

Research real employment opportunities

  • Look at what skills or training need to find employment.

After you have completed the steps above, it’s important to see if these jobs you’e chosen are in fact flexible to accommodate you and your family’s needs.

To help you put things into perspective, jump onto Seek.com.au and look into what type of career you can do from home:

As you can see, these are work from home positions, however, they don’t provide a lot of flexibility, which is very important for mums returning to work.

2. Find the position that suits your needs

After researching the different opportunities to both work from home and choose your hours, you need to find the best position most suited to you and your family’s needs and that are appropriate for mums returning to work.

Your needs may include, but are not limited to:

  • Family-friendly workplace

  • Flexible work hours

  • Reduce childcare expenses

  • Work while you travel on family holidays.

From your research, you may find is that there aren’t many roles out there that cater to these needs, and rarely you will find one that is more flexible as a Medical Transcriptionist

When working as a Medical Transcriptionist, not only can you work from home, but you have the flexibility to decide when you would like to work. This is a very important factor for mums returning to work, as you can still be there for your family and earn an income.

As healthcare is a basic need industry, the work of a Medical Transcriptionist is constant and consistent. This is because your clients are usually repeat-customers that will continue to send you their work if you’re consistent, accurate and reliable.

Overall, the medical transcription industry is currently growing, therefore, it’s a great market to start your work from home career in!

Work around your family’s demands

No commute

Reduce the need for childcare

Low stress

Work from anywhere

3. Prepare For Employment

When looking into how you can gain employment working from home and choosing your own hours as a mum, it’s important to research what skillset or training you need to enter your chosen industry.

You may need to up-skill and obtain a qualification, so you have the knowledge in order to carry out the work.

If you’re looking to work from home and choose your own hours as a Medical Transcriptionist, most employers will require you to have a nationally recognised qualification.

TalentMed’s nationally recognised Diploma of Healthcare Documentation is designed to help provide you with the essential skills and knowledge needed to get a job and excel in this increasingly popular field.

Most noteworthy, this is currently the first and only nationally recognised course in Australia that provides both medical transcription and editing training. Also, qualified trainers are available from the moment you start the course, all the way through until you complete your course.
