Current roles

As part of the Trust’s long-term planning, a number of long-standing trustees stood down in 2023 to make way for a new cohort. The departing trustees recognised that as descendants of the original founder, their exit would signify the end of Tudor operating as a family-led foundation.



Tudor Trust board in discussion


To plan for this significant change, they concentrated on developing an oversight model of governance. This included shaping the recruitment of new Board members through an open application process to ensure greater diversity of experience, thought and leadership. The objective was to assemble a group of people whose combined skills, experiences and perspectives will support the shaping of a future strategy.

We were delighted by the number of strong candidates who applied for the first round of new trustee roles and were able to make strong appointments: Derek Bardowell (Chair Designate), Christienna Fryar, Anthony Murphy, Saba Shafi and Susan Wang.

The current (2024) round of trustee recruitment builds on these appointments and will allow us to further strengthen our board. For this phase, we are particularly keen to hear from candidates with the following profiles:

  • Social Enterprise: someone who brings deep insight into the challenges faced by prospective grantees, as well as their motivations and values
  • People and Culture: broad-based experience in people strategy, with a focus on change and transformation, for example scaling up organisations

Please note all additional out of pocket expenses to all trustees are paid, for example travel, accommodation and caring responsibilities if required.

Tudor operates a conflict-of-interest policy. Applicants for this role are requested to fully disclose professional associations with any former or current Tudor grantees/staff/trustees.

At Tudor Trust, we value and celebrate the differences that make us who we are. We respect the unique, intersectional differences that each individual brings to the table.

Tudor Trust is fully committed to equity, diversity and inclusion in our sector. We want this to be reflected in the diversity of the people who work for us, and we are particularly interested in applications from people from all backgrounds.
