The Board of Trustees holds ultimate accountability for the affairs of Shaw Trust. Its job is to ensure that it is solvent, well-run, and delivers the charitable outcomes for the benefit of the public for which it has been set up. With a strong, capable and highly experienced executive team in place, we are looking for trustees whose experience further reinforces the Board’s role in creating strategy, anticipating risk, introducing new ideas, overseeing change and growth, and providing critical support and stretch to the CEO and his team.
