Assistant Editor

SHARE Magazine is a Sub-Committee of the General Service Board.  The GSB seeks to appoint an Assistant Editor to join the Editorial Team.

Duties include, proof reading articles; working to a strict production schedule; checking for correct spelling and punctuation; ensuring the SHARE 'house style' is adhered to; having an intimate knowledge of Conference approved literature, so that all quotations can be correctly cited.  To ensure continuity, it is important that the Assistant Editor not only work in close conjunction with, but also learn, the Editor's responsibilities.

The monthly production of SHARE magazine is a Team effort; it is essential for the Assistant Editor to be experienced in this environment.  Computer and email competence is indispensable.  Although training will be given, it would be desirable to have previous editing experience.

This is a four-year unpaid commitment, although expenses may be claimed.  Applicants must have a minimum of five years continuous sobriety at the time of application.  They should be familiar with Conference-approved literature, Alcoholics Anonymous, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, AA Comes of Age, Twelve Concepts and the AA Structure and Service Handbooks for Great Britain.

The Team can hold up to four annual meetings at GSO, York, including an annual national SHARE Liaisons Officers' meeting.  The day-to-day business of the Team is carried out electronically, using Microsoft Word.

Application forms are available from the official website (Members>Services>Vacancies).  The Chair, Vice Chair or Secretary of the sponsoring Region or Intergroup must endorse the application by way of a covering letter and both should be returned to:
