In JSM there is no out of the box functionality for assignment group. This is standard in almost every other ITSM that I've worked with and it amazes me that this isn't already part of the product.
I've seen a lot of forum posts about how to achieve this with scriptrunner / addons but I've found a way to implement this with standard jira functionality so I thought I'd share this with the community. Apologies if this has been done already, I haven't seen it if so.
