Head of Impact (F/M/D)


With more than three billion fans, football is the largest social phenomenon on the planet. No other sport boasts such wealth, reach or cultural significance. Common Goal is rooted in the belief that the world’s most popular sport is one of the few cultural forces strong enough to help shift society towards a more sustainable and equitable future for all.

We want to maximise the game’s contribution to people and the planet by forging a lasting connection between football as a business and football as a catalyst for social transformation. We believe that achieving long-lasting change requires everyone’s collaboration. That’s why we are building a movement that creates opportunities for every stakeholder in football to participate and collaborate in support of our people and planet.

Bottom-up and inside-out, we place all our focus on strengthening local capacity to transform realities, embedding purpose at the heart of the football industry and using football as an enabler to inspire a shift in mindset.



The main focus of the Head of Impact at Common Goal lies in ensuring that the Common Goal movement is making meaningful progress towards its mission and impact goals by setting a clear direction and agenda around key impact areas (encompassing social and climate justice), strengthening the delivery of our flagship programmes in collaboration with internal and external stakeholders, and implementing relevant frameworks to measure our success.

Impact maximisation is a focus behind each initiative we take at Common Goal and you help us better structure our approach, measure our progress and learn from our action.

In summary, you’re excited to take on a role that is critical for growing the game and making the world a better place.
