Intergroup Vacancies

Current Vacancies

1. Growing into Service (from the pamphlet Growing into Service) Alcoholics Anonymous is more than a set of principles; it is a Fellowship of alcoholics in action. Service is at the centre of every AA concept and activity. It is as fundamental to AA as abstinence is to sobriety. Without this giving of oneself to another, there would be no Fellowship. This desire to serve improves recovery. As newcomers, we see people giving time, energy and love in the service of the Fellowship, and it is suggested that we too should become involved. Those of us who have done this will tell you of the enormous benefits we have received by willingly stepping into service. A great paradox of AA is that rewards come when we begin to forget ourselves.


Armed Services Liaison Officer

This position is now open and full details of what is expected can be found in Chapter Two of the AA Service Handbook

The role of the ASLO is to establish and maintain communication between Alcoholics Anonymous and The Royal Navy, The Army and The Royal Air Force and to report back at all levels within intergroup or region. It is also important to cultivate similar contact and communication with Community Welfare Officers and organisations such as Soldiers,Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) and Veterans-UK.

Familiarity with the local area and a thorough working knowledge of the AA Service Handbook for Great Britain are vital before accepting the role of Armed Services Liaison Officer.



Employment Liaison Officer

This position is now open and full details of what is expected can be found in Chapter Four of the AA Service Handbook

The responsibility of ELOs is to carry AA’s message to employers within their local area supported by intergroup and region and a PI/Service Committee if one exists. Employment specifically concerns any organisation employing or serving staff companies, trade unions and associations, government departments and/or related agencies. An established period of sobriety (ideally not less than three years) and a thorough knowledge of the AA Service Handbook for Great Britain are necessary before accepting this role. Willingness to commit to three years service and the ability to deal with a wide range of professional people and talk about AA when invited to do so, are also qualities that have proven to be desirable.


Telephone Liaison Officer

This position is now open and full details of what is expected can be found in Chapter Four of the AA Service Handbook 

Responsibility for telephone services begins with Intergroups; however in some areas it has been agreed to devolve this responsibility to regions. Officers within the structure are Intergroup Telephone Liaison Officer (TLO); region TLO; Telephone Committee and the GSB member with responsibility for Telephone Service.

 

Prison Liaison Officer

This position is now open and full details of what is expected can be found in Chapter Eight of the AA Service Handbook

As a member of Alcoholics Anonymous you are there by permission of the Governor and staff and it must be remembered that every Governor, although working within a national framework, has the right of decision in his or her own institution. Familiarity with prisons in the local area and a thorough knowledge of the AA Service and Structure Handbooks for Great Britain are vital before accepting the role of Prison Liaison Officer
