Chief of Staff: (full-time)
Originally a role from politics and military, we see more and more start-ups hiring a chief of staff to coordinate and organise (not only facilitate) Strategy & Goal Setting by OKR Alignment, coordinate Projects, Staff outings, etc. In more traditional companies as similar role is Head of PMO (Project Management Office)
