This page intends to give a short summary of the meaning of staff titles in general - to make the staff environment better insightful to those who are not as familiar with the relevant terminology. Staff members get a title based on their job description, usually consisting of a general title followed by a specific (section of a) department.

The general titles being used are:

Executive Director (ED)
There is only one executive director <mention who they are, i.e.presently Sue Gardner or is this going to be completely generalised?>, and this is the highest ranking staff member. The ED reports directly to the Board of Trustees and forms together with the Deputy Director the executive branch.
Vice President (VP)
There are X Vice Presidents. <blah about the size of their department> <blah about division of work between VP and ED> <blah about reporting>.
Chief (C)
There are X Chiefs, including the Legal Counsel. <blah about the size of their department> <blah about reporting relationships>
Director (D)
There are roughly Y directors, sometimes also called <blah>. <blah about the size of their department> <blah about reporting relationships>
Head of (H)
<blah about number> <blah about size of department> <blah about reporting>
Manager (M)
<blahblah>
Lead (L)
<blahblah>

Other terms I bumped into (might be merged into above):

Consultant
<blah internal/external?>
Senior / Junior
<blah explain>
Contractor vs staff
<explain: are contractors 'lower'?>
Associate
Coordinator
Fellow
Officer
Storyteller
Assistant (and Executive Assistant)
Counsel
Liason
Engineer


to include somewhere: how much independent decision making goes with which role generally. Budget relevant practices (who sets budgets for their department). Departments that are different?
