What exactly qualifies as a a "senior" cabinet position?

Obviously portfolios such as Health, Finance and Trade are deemed "senior"... but what about Human Resources or Infrastructure?

Does the difference between senior and junior positions depend on the number of bureaucrats or rather the importance of the portfolio in a particular parliamentary session?

I have a feeling the number of bureaucrats is hgighly correlated to the importance of the portfolio in Parliament.

But I don't know of any dividing line. I don't think I would put HR or infrastructure in the 'senior' category. But I also think if you start pairing/tripling up the portfolios, they become more senior.
