We're very excited to announce that we are looking to recruit an additional officer to join our Free Company management team!
This is an exciting & rare opportunity for any of you who cares passionately about the FC, and wants to do more to make a difference and help us to continue to grow and develop as a community.
We've made some great progress as an FC (Active Raiding Scene, Recruitment Team, FC House/Gardens/Airships/Subs, Member Awards, Social Events, Revived our Social Media presence and even finally achieved 2nd place in the monthly server FC Rankings). As the community continues to grow, it's critical that we have enough officers in place, to make sure that our members have the support they deserve and expect.
We're happy with where we are so far, but there is still a lot that we want to achieve. We want to bring even more social events to the community, inject some positive energy, revive Alith-Cast, increase our officer presence in game, and continue to develop our raiding scene. All this while keeping the FC feeling like a big family! There is a lot of work to do, but it's all worth it, and we need a strong team to help us reach the heights we know Alith is capable of!
We have a lot of fantastic members in our community right now, but only ONE Officer vacancy at this time. We don't want anybody to be disappointed, but we cannot give the role to everyone who applies, so please don't take it to heart if you aren't selected this time around. We need the additional officer as soon as possible, so we're looking to make this process quick and not long winded.
Please give as much detail as possible in your applications so we can get a good overall idea of what your strengths are, and what you're able to bring to the team.
