Grants Manager (F/M/D)


Do you believe football has the power to change the world, for the better?

This idea that beautiful game can be an effective tool for social change is what unites the Common Goal movement.

Nearly five years ago, a team of professional footballers kicked off the Common Goal movement by committing to pledge 1% of their salary to change the world, for good.  

Today, the movement includes over 150 grassroots organisations and more than 250 professional football players and managers – including Paulo Dybala, Pernille Harder, Timo Werner, Serge Gnabry, Casey Stoney, Jürgen Klopp and Megan Rapinoe. Also influential football figures have joined the movement, such as UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin, professional clubs such as FC Nordsjælland and brands such as adidas and DAZN.

We are at a true historical milestone and as such we have created new opportunities to engage new talent with the drive and passion that changing the world requires humanity’s mindset. 


As our Grants Manager, you will oversee the grant management processes at Common Goal in line with our strategic objectives. This includes the twice-annual funding cycle and any additional funds coordinated by Common Goal, with responsibilities ranging from preparation and evaluation to contract management, project management and impact reporting. As a cross-functional position, you will work at the intersection of our Community, Programmes, Quality Management, Fundraising, Finance / Legal and Brand & Advocacy teams.

Beyond strong communication and coordination skills in the collaboration with colleagues, international organisations and funding partners, we are looking for someone who is enthusiastic about developing and improving all processes linked to grant management and programme coordination, establishing standards and guidelines, and using clever technology solutions.
