Technician Jobs

The Alaska National Guard is a dual-status agency with both a federal and state mission, and therefore offers a variety of full-time employment opportunities with the state government and the federal government. Positions are available for both current military members as well as for civilians depending on the position type. 

National Guard Technicians are employees of The Adjutant General for Alaska as authorized by the National Guard Technician Act of 1968 (32 USC 709, Public Law 90-486). The primary mission of a technician is to provide day-to-day continuity in the operation and training of Army and Air National Guard units before, during, and after mobilization.

National Guard technician positions, or Title 32 dual status technician positions, are employees of the Department of the Army or Department of the Air Force. Title 32 technicians are required to maintain military membership in the National Guard, observe customs and courtesies, and maintain a military grade and unit of assignment compatible with their technician position. To see Title 32 positions available within the Alaska National Guard, please visit USAJOBS.

Civilian technician jobs, or Title 5 full-time positions, are also available for personnel who may or may not have military affiliation. Title 5 technicians are a small but important segment of the workforce that is not required to maintain a military affiliation as a condition of employment. To see Title 5 job opportunities with the Alaska National Guard, please visit USAJOBS.

Active Guard & Reserve (AGR)

The objective of the Active Guard Reserve (AGR) program is to provide highly qualified Soldiers and Airmen to meet the full-time support requirements for Alaska National Guard units, projects, and programs. AGR Soldiers and Airmen assist units in preparing, training, managing supply, and conducting administrative support to provide ready units to respond when called to execute federal, state, and community missions. AGR assignments are career programs offering opportunities that encourage retention through promotion, pay and benefits, professional development, and assignments to positions of increased responsibility.

The Human Resources Office (HRO) is responsible for overseeing the selection of the best-qualified Soldiers and Airmen to enter as participants in the AGR program. The HRO oversees lateral entry into the program at all grade levels, without hindering the career development of current AGR Soldiers and Airmen. HRO personnel management policies offer equality of treatment and opportunity for all qualified program participants, without regard to race, religion, gender, or national origin.

There are a variety of Active Guard & Reserve (AGR) full-time position vacancies within the Alaska National Guard for current members of the military. Current military personnel who are selected for these positions must become members of the Alaska National Guard if they are not already. For all Alaska Guard Reserve (AGR) jobs with the Alaska National Guard, please visit the Alaska Army National Guard or Alaska Air National Guard.
