#539889 Hey Sean,

Is there one Director (you) and then four Deputy Directors and four Coordinators?

Or Is there one Director (you) and four Coordinators, and four deputy Coordinators?

The diagram looks good, but the job vacancies don’t seem to match the terminology in your diagram. I seem more lost now,

I am considering dropping my name in the hat, hence my questions.
