Do you want to write to us and create your own opportunity?

In general, if we are not actively hiring or you are looking for a different opportunity than those we currently call for, you can always write to us at talent@roots-of-impact.org with the subject „I want to be registered in your talent pool“.

In such case, please send us a letter of interest explaining WHY you would like to work for Roots of Impact and what you’re currently doing. Your CV is an important representation of the work you have done to date and a first indicator of how you might fit in with the team. Equally important for us, however, is that you make us understand who you are and what drives your engagement in the sector. Skills can be taught, but a passion for impact finance and an understanding of how you can contribute to that ecosystem can’t. Therefore, we want you to be very specific regarding HOW you would like to contribute to our work.

We look forward to receiving your letter of interest at talent@roots-of-impact.org
