The latest from Rosa

Rosa is Hiring!

Rosa is the first and still the only UK-wide fund dedicated to women and girls- we raise funds to invest in change because while women aren’t short of ideas to improve their lives, they often lack the funds to underpin action. Rosa actively:

  • champions investment in women and girls
  • raises funds and invests in initiatives to advance women’s rights and equality
  • connects and advocates on issues critical to women and girl

 HM Treasury has decided to use VAT on sanitary products to fund women’s charities. It has partnered with Rosa, the UK Fund for Women and Girls, to distribute grants to smaller and locally based organisations in recognition that these groups may find it hard to access grants directly from Central Government. Both Rosa and HM Treasury share a belief that when women and girls thrive, entire communities prosper. They are committed to ensure that all areas of the UK benefit from the new Fund.

Rosa recently launched the Woman to Woman fund to strengthen and connect local grassroots women’s organisations across the UK.  With grants of between £5,000 and £25,000, no fewer than 100 local grassroots women’s organisations across the UK will be supported using funds from the ‘Tampon Tax.’

 

The Role

We wish to recruit one full-time, or two-part-time (2 days per week), experienced freelance assessors, with strong knowledge and experience of the voluntary sector.

The role will be to work with the Grants Manager to carry out assessments of grant applications to Rosa’s Woman to Woman fund programme. The assessments will be desk based only and will not require any physical visits or telephone discussions. The assessor will be required to complete a minimum of 5 assessments per day and will be responsible for collating and analyzing the information you’ve gathered, and then writing up through, objective assessment reports. The assessor will be paid a daily rate to be discussed.

The assessment period will be from Monday 20th February to Friday 10th March. The ideal assessor would be able to come into our office (North London) at least one day per week and work from home for the remaining assessment days.

 

The Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of the issues currently facing women and girls and a strong commitment to gender equality and social justice. As an experienced assessor you’ll also have excellent communication skills combined with an aptitude for financial analysis.
