Head of Partnerships (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.


Main focus of the Head of Partnerships at Common Goal lies in accelerating our organisational and movement’s development towards financial sustainability, establishing quality investment and impact partnerships with a focus on driving the collective impact (people & planet) to exponential growth. As a driver of our partnerships strategy, the Head of Partnerships leads on the development of meaningful collaborations with the 1% mechanism serving as a reference and framework across all relationships.

We are convinced that it is both, an urgent need and a business imperative to embed purpose in football’s DNA. We believe that football has the potential to be at the core of growing the game, while enabling acceleration towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Are you excited to take on a role that is critical for growing the game and making the world a better place?
