The scope for coordination and keeping on top of the multitude of OKF projects and people means that it really needs to be a full time gig as much as is possible [1].

Having met Laura during the recruitment process last year, I'm pleased
to hear that she's available to work with OKF. But I'm concerned that
her not being able to commit full time might be at odds with the
description of the role as Jason has set it out here.

To be clear, I'm definitely +1 on bringing her on board as a joint
Foundation Coordinator with Jason, and I'm confident that they each
have the project management and communication skills necessary to
job-share this role for a time. But if Jason is eventually going to
phase out his involvement with OKF, and Laura's availability to work
closer to full time from January is not yet certain, do we need a
contingency plan (perhaps in the form of informally training
up/looping in another member of the crew)?
