The application deadline for this role has passed

Rosa is a charitable grantmaking organisation with a mission to improve the lives of women and girls by drawing in and distributing funding and resources to the women and girl’s sector.

We strive to be a leading funder of specialist women’s and girls’ organisations (including those overlooked by other funders) as we recognise that many of these do transformational work with the most marginalised in society.  With an eleven year track record, we are trusted and respected and we pride ourselves on being thoughtful, collaborative and responsive to the needs of our grantees.

Our work focuses on the key issues affecting women’s and girls’ lives including violence and sexual abuse, reproductive rights and health, poverty and economic inequality and mental health, and recognises the connections between them. 

We have a dynamic Executive Director who leads a professional team to develop and deliver targeted programmes to meet the needs of the women and girls’ sector across these issues and across the UK.

We are currently in the process of introducing a strategy to grow the range of organisations with whom we partner for funding and we want to expand the Board to support us in this work. The role will include opportunities to engage in grantmaking, policy and strategy, organisational development and governance and fundraising.

We are committed to being representative of our society and bringing together those with a variety of skills and experiences to shape what we do and how we work.  In line with this, we are particularly keen to hear from people from Black and Asian communities as well as people with disabilities.

The role is unremunerated but we will reimburse all reasonable travel expenses to enable all Trustees to participate fully.
