Common Goal is a movement of football players, managers and supporters who share a mission to change the game for good.
The idea is simple. Our members pledge a minimum of 1% of their annual wages to a collective fund. And we allocate this fund to high-impact football charities from all over the world.
It’s a small commitment that drives big change—building a bridge between the world of football and the sustainable development of our planet.
As it stands, the Common Goal team boasts around 50 members in total, including World Cup winners Juan Mata, Mats Hummels, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe.
To help us unleash the unique potential of football for good, we are looking for a passionate Community Management Intern (f/m) to join our team in Berlin.
