In 1980, Lady Judge was appointed as the youngest ever commissioner of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Thereafter, she was appointed as the first woman executive director of Samuel Montagu and, subsequently, News International, among other firms.

Lady Judge joined the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority as director in 2002, became its chairman in 2004, and was reappointed in 2007. Upon completion of two terms, she was appointed chairman emeritus in 2010, the same year she was named as chairman of the U.K. Pension Protection Fund.

In addition, Lady Judge is chairman of the Energy Institute of University College London and the U.K. Global Nuclear Initiative. She is also chairman of the London Middle East Institute and a member of the Trilateral Commission and the Council of Foreign Relations.
