Overview

Fulham Palace Trust                                                                 Chair

 

Fulham Palace is a truly remarkable place, it ranks amongst England’s most important heritage sites. Fulham Palace Trust was established in April 2011 to manage, restore and promote Fulham Palace and gardens.  Following two major restoration projects in 2005-06 and 2010-11 the Trust has just begun a further capital project, to be completed in 2019, to restore the Tudor section of the building and provide enhanced public access to the Tudor rooms.

 

Having raised £3.2m from a range of sources including the Heritage Lottery Fund, our fundraising for this project is almost complete, with around £370k left to find before the end of September 2017.  There will be future development and restoration projects including the restoration of our Victorian Chapel and refurbishment of office and residential accommodation.

 

We are currently looking for a non-Executive Chairman to continue the excellent work started under Tim Ingram, outgoing Chairman, as the Trust enters this exciting new phase in its history.

 

We are looking for someone who is passionate about heritage and the Trust’s work to involve people in history and horticulture.  You should have good business acumen, be a strategic thinker, a great communicator, well networked in your area of expertise, and able to develop strong working relationships with Trustees, staff and external stakeholders.
