Illawarra mums have a target on their heads by the Corrimal Fire and Rescue NSW unit.

They’re in desperate need for two new retained firefighter positions and want mothers to apply.

“They don’t need to be like an iron-woman or anything like that,” said Acting Captain Paul Dorin.

The position is a paid on-call style part-time role during the day, which he said is the hardest time-slot to fill.

Mr Dorin, a stay-at-home dad, said it would be perfect for mum’s (or dads) who have availability in between 9am and 3pm.

“Once you’ve dropped the kids off to school and grabbed your morning coffee, that period until school pick-up is a great spot to be filled [at the fire station],” he said.

Their aim is to also increase their female population in general, so are inviting ladies to their next drill night on Wednesday February 24th at 6:30pm to see what it’s all about.

Candidates will need to reasonably healthy and fit, and prepared to fight fires and spruik fire awareness.

The positions will be advertised on Seek.com and Jobs NSW.
