SALO is staffed by a team of experienced programme, administrative and financial staff who manage the daily operations of the organization.  The SALO team is deeply committed to the values and ethos of SALO, ensuring that the organization itself demonstrates good governance, institutional memory, continuity, and the translation of workplans into excellent practice.

In addition, SALO supplements its full-time staff with ad-hoc, flexible competence by contracting a wide range of research and other specialist skills, creating a flexible network of practitioners that add value to the research/knowledge base of Southern Africa.
