In July 2008 Rose successfully applied for Girls4Gold, a UK sport initiative which was the most extensive female sporting talent recruitment drive undertaken in Great Britain. She was selected for the sport of Bob Skeleton and attended further testing days at the University of Bath push track, and in March 2009 was one of 8 girls who travelled to an Ice camp in Norway for her first experience of sliding.
In May she was selected onto the 'Skeleton Futures' development programme and began a summer of training. The 2009-2010 season was spent sliding on Tracks in Europe and America, followed by another intensive summer of training. After successful British Selection races, she competed on the European cup circuit for the 2010-2011 season, and finished 4th overall with 4 podium finishes and 4 top eight finishes. To round the season off, she progressed up to the Intercontinental circuit and acheived two 5th place finishes.
She progressed to the Intercontinental Circuit in the following season and became the 2011-2012 Overall Champion, winning half of the races on the circuit with 2 other second place finishes. The season culminated with racing in the 2012 World Championships where she finished 16th.
