We're very excited to announce that we are looking to recruit additional officers to join our guild management team!
This is an exciting opportunity for those of you who care passionately about the guild, and want to do more to make a difference and help us to continue to grow and develop as a community.
We've managed to achieve many of our initial goals as an FC (Successful launch of Alith Raids, Alith-Cast, Member Awards and Recruitment Team to name just a few) and we are really happy with our progress so far. As the community continues to grow, it's critical that we have enough officers in place, to make sure that you all have the support you deserve and expect. Krys, Nashu and myself have been keeping things ticking along, but we cannot run this guild successfully on our own, and the whole community deserves to have a strong, solid, dedicated and active officer team.
We're happy with where we are so far, but we are so excited for what the future holds for Alith. We're excited to be finally purchasing our FC House and are also always looking for ways to boost our recruitment while also keen to get our Social Events going a lot more frequently! There is a LOT of work to do, but it's all worth it, and we need a strong team at our side to help us bring all this great stuff to life!
We are very keen to give our Social Events a big boost, and start running these more frequently - so we would LOVE to bring someone into the Officer Team who is particularly passionate about Guild Social / Fun events, who would be open to "leading" this aspect of the FC with the support of the rest of the officer team. This aspect isn't necessarily a deal breaker, but it would be a welcomed bonus if one of our new officers came with lots of fun & exciting ideas for guild social events, and is up for taking a leadership role in this.
Krys, Nashu and I are already blown away with the wealth of talented, skilled and experienced individuals in our guild who can add so much to Alith and can help us to take the guild to the next level. That's why we're very excited and looking forward to bringing in some new blood to the team.
We do appreciate though, that we may have a lot of potential officers out there, and only limited vacancies. 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 appreciate that we will probably receive a lot of interest, and therefore we're hoping for a lot of applications. We are conscious that we need the additional officers as soon as possible, so we're looking to make this process quick and not long winded.
Once the closing date passes, and we've received all the applications, we will review them thoroughly. We'll study and discuss each and every application in detail, with the aim to select successful candidates based on the strength of their application AND the individuals track record / reputation in the guild. We MAY request a short interview with some of you - this will be decided on the strength (and number) of applications we receive.
For all the reasons above, it's crucial that you 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.
If you love being in Alith, feel you have a lot to contribute to the guild and want to become part of our close team, please do apply! We encourage ANYONE who feels they are suitable for the role to apply, regardless of how long you have been in the guild.
