I'm not sure what this is meant to accomplish. I understand new blood to deal with problems, but setting up departments (As if we understand what that means) making people Heads and such without really doing any work on this site before. What is this supposed to tell the current staff? Work hard as a volunteer and learn about the culture of the site you're moderating and you too can have someone brand new with little knowledge of the site as your superior.
Yep why give new admins a chance to work with staff and learn about the site when they can jump in and do what they want?
