I'd hire Benjen Stark to be Hand of the King.

I would recommend the citadel appoint Sam as the Grand Maester.

Vic would, obviously, be the Master of Ships while Bronn can serve as Master of Law and Lancel can put that Lannister gold to good use and be Master of Coin.

Lothar Frey; though I would never trust nor like him; would absolutely become the Master of Whispers.

Jorah I'd name Lord Commander of the City Watch and give him an advisory seat on the council.

Brienne would be Lord Commander of the Kingsguard and both Drink and Darkstar would serve under her.

Thoros I'd just keep around as a drinking buddy.

I'm assuming these aren't ONLY for Small Council positions.

 

Brienne would make a worthy Kingsguard.

Jorah and Missandei would be good advisors, based on their knowledge of foreign affairs, customs, and languages.

I agree that Lothar would make a good Master of Whispers, and Victarion a good Master of Ships.

Samwell could be an archivist/researcher in the Red Keep. If Benjen is qualified, he could be a Master at Arms.

If Thoros is still breathing life into the dead, I'd keep him around as a "medic."

Meera Reed would be worth keeping around, maybe as an ambassador of some sort.

Many of the names on the list aren't stand-outs in any particular way, or have been written as untrustworthy. Bowen is a lick spittle, Lancel is crippled by guilt over Cersei, Darkstar can't be trusted, Bronn can be bought, Rohanne Webber was a black widow.

Brienne of Tarth - The Mother's Sword - Head of a new ecclesiastically endorsed military order with the initial charter to punish rape and the abuse of prostitutes at military camps.

Jorah Mormont - The Blade Factor - A new post on the wharves of King's Landing, working with the Cotton Factor and the Wine Factor, to negotiate the purchase of sellswords by the Iron Throne on the occasion it needs them, or the offering of feudal levies for money to foreign governments.

Lothar Frey - The King's Cloak - A new post under the King's Justice specifically dedicated to punishing those who violate marriage contracts.

Bowen Marsh - The White Crow - His job is to audit granaries in King's Landing and to travel elsewhere as necessary in order to help prepare the realm for winter. He wears a white cloak instead of a black one and reports to the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, but is not himself Kingsguard, classifying winter protection under security, not commerce.

Benjen Stark - The Treespeaker - An ecumenical political position meant as a counterpoint to the High Septon, invited to meetings concerning the Faith of the Realm, such that those of First Men ancestry who still hold to the worship of the Old Gods are respected appropriately by acts of the crown. The Treespeaker also has a philanthropic mandate from the crown to fund the renovation of the godswoods of historical castles and goes to a lot of tree-planting ceremonies.

Samwell Tarly - Royal Tournament Medic.

Barbrey Dustin - Patron of The Shaded Sisters - Ceremonial office of a similar nature to the Treespeaker and the High Septon, but liaising with the silent sisters, to a project to make sure the bones of those who worship the Old Gods are treated properly.

Skahaz Mo Kandaq - Royal Googler.

Missandei - Royal Interpreter.

Victarion Greyjoy - Master of Ships

Lancel Lannister - Chief Gaoler

Darkstar Dayne - Create a fifth Warden position - the Warden of the Arm - which isn't covered by the other Wardens

Aaaand, I ran out of gas figuring out what position to give Bronn that he can collect an income from and not do much - maybe a job projecting towns that have been sacked from outlaws while they rebuild? The King's Trowel?

Hand of the King - Maybe Darkstar Dayne, I guess, out of this lot. 

Master of ships - Victarion (would make him HotK if I could trust him and had another sailor for this gig.)

Master of coin - Lancel, I guess? Lannisters know money, right?

Master of laws - Jorah, I guess. I've never even really understood what this post does in practical sense...

Grand Maester - Samwell

Interpreter -  Missandei- and look good standing by

KG Lord Commander - Brienne (unless she rly wanted to have kids, got to keep those Dunk genes going.)

Mayor/Governor of King's Landing  - Bowen Marsh (always thought this was a position of need, someone has to turn that shit pile into a capitol city. Obviously meant for Tyrion though). Would include things like zoning, building codes and sanitation. I've never understood why KL is allowed to be a third-rate city. 

Royal Wine seeker - Dontos (bring me the best from around the globe)

- I'd have Victarion appoint a fleet of exploration. The idea that my maps just end would be maddening. Get about a dozen good Ironborn ships to go map out stuff like Sothryros (or take people who make the maps).
