AFTER three years of
and interviews, Phillip Is-
land’s Simon Kirton has
realised his dream of be -
coming a career firefight-
er with the CFA.
The 23-year- old for-
mer Newhaven College
student will begin his
journey as a firefighter
in mid-February with
19 weeks of recruitment
training at the Victorian

From there, he will se -

stations across Victoria.
He began volunteering
at the Phillip Island CFA
after finishing school in
2010 and quickly devel-
oped a passion for life as
Simon said his motiva-
tion for the career was an
eagerness to help people.
“I want to be able to give
back in a hands-on, posi-
tive manner and be able
to work with other volun-
teers closely,” he said.
Although he was
knocked back on his
first interview attempt
for a career role, Simon’s
strong resolve saw him
push harder and strive
towards his goal.
He said he worked hard
on improving vital skills
after receiving feedback
from the interviewers.
“They suggested a few
things I could improve
on; I was very nervous in
the original interview, so
it was just about under-
standing and knowing
myself better,” he said.
“I worked closely with
family friends that have
spent a lot of time doing
“I really improved my
technique and tried to not
be so scripted.
“I relaxed into the inter-
view and told them every-
thing I had to offer.
“As a volunteer I’ve
gained a lot of experience,
but I had to present it in
a way where I was high-
lighting what I had to of-
fer the organisation. ”
Throughout the com-
petitive interview process,
Simon was subjected to
beep testing, aptitude
testing, a screening inter-
view, a physical challenge
and a personality profile,
before the final senior
panel interview and CFA
All his hard work paid
off when he was one of
few chosen for the job
from around 3000 appli-

work at the Cowes Golf
Club before a short break

THE Southern Business Women’s Net-
work (SBWN) has New Year resolutions
The group is hosting special guest
speaker Judy O’Connell at its January
dinner event in Inverloch on January
Judy has navigated many challenges
during a highly successful career and
will inspire SBWN members onto great-
er heights in 2016.
Judy O’Connell, the Assistant Deputy
Commissioner Small Business for the
Australian Taxation Office and the sister
of SBWN members Gillian Mertens and
Andrea Evans-McCall; she will tell the
story of her path to success and what we
can learn from her journey.
Judy is also in a unique position at the
coal face of small business development
within government and the insights she
can provide will be compelling.
Judy graduated from Melbourne Uni-
versity in the early 80s and has worked
in the public sector ever since.
Judy will share with us that women
in Australia earn around 17.5 per cent
less than men over their working life, so
the first disadvantage they face is lower
levels of financial stability and, as a con-
sequence, less access to “seed” capital
to get a business underway.
On top of this, there is balancing
child-birth, child-rearing and family re -
sponsibilities with the dynamics of run-
ning a business.
However, Judy believes that women
have very good time management skills,
which are actually a huge advantage
when it comes to running a business
with limited resources and that the
number of women starting and/or run-
ning small businesses is increasing, due
in part to greater levels of independence
than a generation ago.
In her current role Judy leads a range
of key programs to deliver innovative
and contemporary support options to
make it easy for small business to inter-
act with the tax office.
Programs include the development
and implementations of cross agency
‘fix it’ squads, and the establishment of
small business multi-use panels.
Judy also sits on various internal and
external committees and forums span-
ning both the micro and SME markets,
and is the ATO Senior Liaison for the
Small Business Minister.
So come hear how Judy got to be
where she is today and how she has jug-
gled her career with being the mother
of two sets of twins! The SBWN dinner
on Thursday, January 21 will be held at
the Inlet Hotel, Inverloch from 6.30pm.
For more information, email the
SBWN president on president@sbwn.
