1 CHIEF Membership and impact officer (f/m/x)

The IPC offers the newly created position of a full-time Chief Membership and Impact Officer (f/m/x) in a multi-cultural team at the IPC Headquarters in Bonn, Germany, starting in early 2022.


The IPC is a purpose-driven non-profit member association. At the IPC, we work as one team, aligned and focused on fulfilling our vision and mission.

The IPC’s vision is for an inclusive world through Para sport. We believe that Change Starts With Sport, and that the work of the Paralympic Movement is a catalyst for driving social inclusion and advancing the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

The IPC seeks to use the influential global position of the Paralympic Movement and the growing profile of Para athletes and the WeThe15 campaign to challenge the stigma attached to disability and empower social transformation for the world’s 1.2 billion persons with disabilities who represent 15% of the global population.

Our mission is to lead the Paralympic Movement, oversee the delivery of the Paralympic Games and support members to enable Para athletes to achieve sporting excellence. Since 1989, we have been creating change through sport with the Paralympic Games and Paralympic athletes at our core.


The IPC Chief Membership and Impact Officer reports to the IPC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and primarily will be responsible for leading the innovation, strategic planning and delivery of programmes in the areas of member development and engagement, government and institutional relations, advocacy and legacy. In addition, the successful candidate will join the CEO, General Counsel, Chief Paralympic Games Delivery Officer, Chief Brand & Communications Officer and Managing Director of World Para Sports in providing organisational leadership and guiding efforts to build an inclusive intercultural environment where staff of all backgrounds and abilities can thrive.



The IPC seeks a dynamic leader who has a demonstrated ability to uphold and maintain our organisational values, is a creative and diplomatic problem-solver, has a strong curiosity and the desire to continue learning, has a collegial collaborative work style, a sense of humour, and the dedication to work hard to achieve and promote excellence.
