ABOUT COMMMON GOAL               


Common Goal (powered by streetfootballworld) is a philanthropic movement with an ambitious aspiration: uniting the global football community in tackling the greatest social challenges in the world today - from HIV/AIDS to gender inequality to youth unemployment. The UN has defined success against these challenges as the Global Goals.


The idea is simple: Common Goal’s members (football players, managers, fans and businesses) pledge 1% of their earnings to a central fund. And together we allocate this fund to high-impact community organisations that harness the power of football to advance the Global Goals.


Since Common Goal’s inception in August 2017, more than 100 professional football players and managers, including Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels, Juventus Turin’s Giorgio Chiellini and USWNT’s Alex Morgan, influential football officials such as UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin, football legends such as Eric Cantona and a first professional club (FC Nordsjaelland of the top flight league Denmark) have joined the movement.




As our Community Management Intern, you’ll be working closely with our Community Management team to deliver a world-class donor experience to Common Goal’s members (players, managers and supporters who have signed up for the pledge). As part of your day-to-day responsibilities, you will build and maintain communication with Common Goal members and partners, conduct research that helps generate insights into our members’ needs and satisfaction levels and support the continuous improvement of Common Goal’s community onboarding and engagement strategy. And, of course, you’ll get to play some football. We love kicking off the day with a game from time to time!
