We have a fileshare for staff but I'm unsure how to set permissions. Some staff are deleting files they're not supposed to. If I have a shared folder what security permissions are necessary for staff to create, modify and save but not delete. Right now they have full control. Is that too much?

Full control allows someone to do everything including changing permissions.

To be really granular, you need to click the advanced button.  Then you can set permissions that allow write, modify, but not delete, etc.

A better / easier option would be to redo your folder structure to more closely resemble the permissions people need.

NTFS can be fairly complicated or very easy and wide open.  You really need to read up on it though, because there's no easy solution that fits every environment.

This is a small 10 user domain so all domain users have the same permissions to the folder. Again what security permissions are necessary for staff to create, modify and save but not delete?

Here you go.  Be aware that although a user may not be able to delete a file if they can modify the file, they can delete everything IN the file and save the file.
