Rose Chilton

Research & Analysis Manager

Rose works in Sported’s Evidence and Learning team, based in London. Much of her work is around Sported’s Capacity Model; a quantitative survey used as a diagnostic tool for community sports organisations. The tool is primarily used to help members identify needs, but a comparison of surveys pre and post support is used to demonstrate the impact of Sported’s work.


Rose is also responsible for communicating data about the needs and trends of our members, and reporting of Sported’s KPIs. In addition Rose helps to guide best practice in the monitoring, evaluation and reporting of externally funded projects.


Rose joined Sported in February 2017, after spending almost four years working in the international development sector based in Tanzania. This included two years in a capacity building role within the Ministry of Trade, and later working for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. Rose has a strong academic background in quantitative research methods, having obtained a BSc in Economics and International Development from the University of Bath, and an MSc in Economics and Econometrics from the University of Nottingham.


Rose strongly believes in sport as a tool for positive change, and particularly enjoys mixed team sport, including ultimate frisbee, tag rugby and netball.
