Rosa is Hiring!

Rosa is the first and still the only UK-wide fund dedicated to women and girls with a mission to mobilize resources for women’s equality. Rosa is working towards a safe, prosperous, healthy and economically just future for ALL women. And we don’t believe this can be achieved without a vibrant, vocal, well-connected and resourced women’s sector.  Rosa offers grants, training, mentoring and networking to support women’s organizations and their leaders. We seek to amplify the voice of grassroots groups and national campaigns. We aim to influence funders and decision-makers across sectors to generate and leverage resources for the work of the women’s sector. Rosa leads the way on woman-centered grant-making and has built up distinctive expertise in female philanthropy.

We’re now looking for a Grants Manager (28 hours/week) to join our dynamic team.

The Grants Manager manages all aspects of the grant cycle, including telephone and online support for potential applicants, initial screening of applications, conducting due diligence, submitting shortlisted applications to the grants panel, supporting panels meetings, communicating decisions to applicants, arranging grant payments, tracking reports and outcomes. The Grants Manager will also work with other team members in developing new initiatives, researching funding opportunities and building new relationships.

The person we’re looking for is a resourceful team player, with expertise, creativity and initiative. A strong commitment to gender equality and social justice is a must-have. You’ll already have some good grant-making experience, and may now be looking for a more strategic role. In return, we can offer a flexible, supportive working environment, a 5% pension contribution, opportunities to develop your skills and ideas, and the chance to make a real, long term difference to women and girls in the UK.
