Notes:

1. Directors are executive members of the CEFAS management board.

2. Senior managers lead operational management across the organisation, and form part of the CEFAS “Senior Management Team”.

3. Specialist and delivery managers: have an extensive proportion of their time focused on managing/delivering customer projects and are typically professionally qualified. This is an estimated figure based on staff grade.

4. Executive support and administration: provide the “corporate services” function for CEFAS.
