By Till Wahnbaeck
December 18, 2023

Good New Year’s resolutions?

Then use the tools of business for a better world and join us as Head of Comms (ideally full-time, Hamburg)

Your job
You will be responsible for all communication-related trades. You will make Impacc the leading brand for a new, more effective way of providing development aid. You will manage a team of colleagues and pro bono experts, develop and implement marketing plans, acquire partners, conceptualise events and, last but not least, get Impacc into the media.

Your profile
You have 3 to 5 years of professional experience in marketing and ideally PR, preferably with a strong brand. International experience would be good, as the team speaks English.

You are great at your job, but selling packet soup is no longer enough for you. You want to use your skills to make the world a little better and fairer.
You have a cool head (you can think, analyse and prioritise) and a warm heart (you are socially committed) and strong hands (you are a doer type).

You share our values: we are impatient optimists who want to use the tools of business for social change.

What we offer
Plenty of freedom to build a young start-up into one of the leading aid organisations in Europe. An office in Hamburg’s cool Schanzenviertel neighbourhood (and the opportunity to work flexibly), with lots of travel to Africa. The opportunity to mentor and be mentored. Less money than you earn, but enough to make ends meet. And the chance to make the world a little better.

About us
Impacc is the first and so far only non-profit organisation in Germany that converts donations into investments. The best way out of poverty is a job, and 9 out of 10 jobs in developing countries are created by small businesses. That’s why we invest in African start-ups, so that great founders can grow on their own and create jobs that provide dignity and prospects.
