The Divisions, Teams and Departments
The five Divisions of the Organization summarize all Departments and Teams of a similar subject and are led by a Division manager, who acts as a connecting tool between the Divisions and the Leadership Team, he also brings in wishes and suggestion from the Teams to the Leadership Team, where the decisions are made. There are five Divisions in total, although each is composed differently. The Divisions are Management, International matters, Marketing, Guardianship and Preparation of Content.
Division MarketingThe Division Marketing summarizes all activities, which are essential for the commercialization. For example the appearance on Social Media, the production of information material as well as the contact to the press. Thus the Division Marketing manages the appearance of the Organization in the public as well as on the inside and ensures a unified appearance.

Division GuardianshipThe Division Guardianship is responsible for the support for every stage, a person in the Austrian Service Abroad goes through – starting at a New Applicant all the way to being an alumnus. The Federal state Units Spokesmen, Tutors, Annual cohorts Spokesmen, Area Spokesmen and the Women’s-Team are all summarized in this Division. The first point of contact until admission is the tutor, then at the local level the country representative and, depending on the position and year of service, the annual cohort and area spokesman. Whereby these remain important even after the start of the service period. The Volunteer’s Department is also responsible for the support of female new applicants and candidates, as the Austrian Service Abroad is a largely male-dominated organization due to its origins in the context of military service. The Volunteer’s Department should be a contact point for volunteers, point out exclusion mechanisms and assist women in the association.

The clear objective of the division is the optimal support and management of our network, in which our partners, the deployment points, also fall. Their support is the main goal of this department, in addition to the goal of maintaining and expanding the organization’s networks. Here the cooperation with the chairman of the association is especially important, as he is responsible for the advisory board and the international council.
