Tips to help you complete your application
We don’t want any part of our application process to be a barrier to your team entering so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions or concerns via firstname.lastname@example.org
We are more interested in your ideas and approach than a perfect application. We are looking for applications from many voices and backgrounds. To support your application, we encourage you to speak to one of the Rapid Recovery team and use the resources on this site. Find out more below…
The application form: The application form will help you explain how your solution meets the various assessment criteria. Download a PDF version to get an idea of how long this process might take your team.
The assessors: Each eligible application received will be reviewed by two assessors. Using a combined average of their scores (marked against criteria as detailed in the assessment criteria) all entries will be ranked and a moderated shortlist of 24 entries (12 per stream) will go to the judges. Assessors are external experts recruited specifically for this role.
The judges: The judges will meet to review the assessors’ shortlist and select 12 participants (six per stream) to take part in the Rapid Recovery Challenge as semi-finalists. The external, independent judging panel has a wealth of experience and insight relevant to the challenge and the challenge’s assessment criteria.
Due Diligence: We will undertake background checks on your organisation to assess financial security and to check your organisation against the eligibility criteria. These checks are designed to highlight issues that could affect the integrity of the Challenge or prevent you from completing the Challenge.
Applications open on Monday 14 September 2020 and close at 12pm (noon) GMT on 26 October 2020.
