To create a new role click on the Roles on the left hand side of the menu
Next, click on 'Create role' at the top of the page
Assign what you would like the new role to have access to (what policies you want to sit under the new role) and name the role
Next, scroll down and click save
Once the role has been created you can then assign people to the role by click on the people icon
under the 'users' header of the new role you have you have created.
Here you can also manage users in this section to add or remove a person to a particular role.
