Service Vacancies

A list of service vacancies for each discipline will be found here. Please follow the instructions for applying for each individual vacancy.

A sub-committee is made up of alcoholics with usually five years sobriety and service experience down the AA structure. It is a committee that delivers Conference recommendations, and is chaired by a Trustee of the General Service Board.

All sub-committee members go through an application and interview process. There are usually vacancies listed quarterly in AASN, together with a deadline for submission for application and criteria which you will need to meet as part of your application.

It’s a rewarding job being on a sub-committee, by both carrying the message and the conscience of the Fellowship.

The Armed Services sub-committee is looking for three new members to join a committed team who are passionate about finding innovative ways of passing the message of recovery to past and present members of the Armed Services

Good organisation and communication skills are desirable. The ability to produce written and verbal reports would be an advantage, as well as relevant IT skills.
