Common Goal is a philanthropic movement with an ambitious aspiration: uniting the global football community in tackling the greatest social challenge of our time – from ending gender inequality to combating racism to eradicating poverty and youth unemployement. The UN has defined success against these challenges as the Global Goals.
Common Goal is the creation of streetfootballworld, the world’s leading organisation in the field of football for good. Launched in 2017, the movement enables professional football players, managers, officials and clubs to pledge a minimum of 1% of their earnings to high-impact initiatives that harness the power of football to advance the Global Goals.
To date, more than 180 professional football players and managers from over 40 countries, including recognised leaders from the men’s and women’s game such as Serge Gnabry, Pernille Harder, Megan Rapinoe, Paulo Dybala, Juan Mata, Julian Nagelsmann, Casey Stoney and Jürgen Klopp have joined Common Goal. Influential football figures such as UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin and the iconic former player Eric Cantona have also joined the movement, along with professional clubs such as FC Nordsjælland in Denmark and the Oakland Roots in the U.S. So far, Common Goal has generated over €3.5M for high-impact football for good programmes empowering young people all over the world.
As our Member Relations Manager, you’ll be responsible for building new and managing existing relationships with a particular focus on (prospective) members in the UK and Common Goal’s brand partnerships. Working closely with Common Goal’s founders and a team of like-minded professionals, you’ll develop and represent Common Goal in interactions with professional football players, managers, agents, club representatives and brand partners with the aim of attracting new and growing our collobroation with existing Common Goal members (individuals and organisations pledging 1% of their earnings in support of high-impact social and environmental change initiatives). And, of course, you’ll get to play some football. We love kicking off the day with a game from time to time!
