New Trustees

We are now looking to appoint new Trustees who will work with our founding Trustees and Omar Khan to take TASO forward and ensure we are an effective and impactful organisation.

This is a great time to join at the very start of our new journey, offering the opportunity to contribute to shaping and developing an organisation that has the potential to transform lives.

We are looking for people with wide-ranging experiences across different sectors who can bring a different way of thinking. Our Trustees will be passionate about what TASO is striving to achieve.

We are seeking a number of people with diverse skills and experiences including but not limited to: strategic finance and accountancy, HR and Talent Management, people with experience of philanthropy and PR & Communications. A priority for us is to ensure we represent the people we are seeking to support and so we are looking to appoint a student representative – someone who has not had a traditional route to university and perhaps came from a vocational route. We expect all our Trustees to be credible advocates and ambassadors of TASO. Given we are a new and growing organisation, it would be helpful to have people who are entrepreneurial and who may have direct experience of start-up.

We expect the time commitment to build up to a day a month as TASO becomes established. This will include quarterly meetings, occasional considered input into working groups and attendance at sector events.

If you are excited by the opportunity to develop TASO to become the go-to organisation for transforming equality in higher education, then please contact our consultants at Peridot Partners for a confidential discussion:
