As the organizers of the world's biggest inclusive sports event for people with and without intellectual disabilities, we are expecting around 7,000 athletes as well as Unified partners from 170 countries in Berlin from 17 to 25 June 2023.

  • Experience in handling data centric application or event management systems is a plus
  • Ability to formulate easy-to-understand recommendations based on your experience and understanding of a tool from the user's perspective

  • Ability to maintain stable performance under pressure, especially during Games-Time
  • Ability to communicate technical concepts to non-technical audience/stakeholders
  • Excellent problem-solving and analytical skills
  • Proven experience working on IT projects that have gone through the full project lifecycle; from scoping, development, implementation and review
  • Collaborative approach and being a team player
  • Eager to meet and provide a memorable experience for Volunteers
  • Communication in English and German
Besides huge emotions and the immeasurable thanks of our athletes, we also offer you the opportunity…
  • … to help organize a unique event at the heart of Europe
  • … to deal with an extremely important range of social issues
  • … to enjoy the greatest possible design freedom and personal responsibility
  • … to get to know a gigantic network within the world of German sport
We are much more than a conventional major sports event. That's why we want you in all of your uniqueness, just as you are, with all of your facets. Here, everyone can be
what and how he/she wants to be and is. We welcome all applications regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic and social origin, religion, disability, age, and sexual orientation and identity.
