What we do
Employment & Skills
Tottenham Hotspur has created 2,726 new jobs for local people as a direct result of its ongoing new stadium development scheme and sport-led regeneration of the area.
Since 2013, the Club and its Foundation have worked in partnership with Haringey Council and the Department for Work and Pensions to ensure as many jobs as possible emerging from the development have gone to local residents.
To date, the partnership has successfully engaged with employers to ensure job vacancies are open to local people and has actively worked with individuals across the community to help with CVs, support the application process and provide access to training and employment opportunities.
The Foundation has helped place Haringey residents within jobs across a wide range of industries associated with the stadium development, including construction, IT, hospitality, security and retail.

In addition to live job opportunities, we run a range of programmes to equip local people with the skills and training required to find employment or training opportunities.
Our Jobs Fairs help employers connect with future colleagues within the local workforce. We've created over 4,000 employment opportunities for the local community through our award-winning Jobs Fairs, apprenticeship schemes and partner initiatives.
These events are the ideal place to explore job opportunities at your own pace. Come and spend time engaging with employers.

Pathways to Employment
In partnership with Waltham Forest College, the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is offering a supported pre-employment programme for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
This programme will offer 10 week (three hours per week) employability skills workshops and a 5 week supported work placement. The employability skills workshops will help participants to improve social interaction, communication, leadership, health & safety, presentation skills, and health & wellbeing.
Project SEARCH accommodates ten students aged 18-24, with the course split into three ten-week work placements.
The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation provides two job coaches who work with local organisations to help individuals access and apply for employment opportunities. The average employment rate for individuals aged 18–24 with a learning disability in the UK is just 7%. That figure increases to 65% for those that have been through Project SEARCH programmes.
The programme aims to help over 50s who are looking for work, changing their career, or returning to work.
Participants will receive 1-2-1 employment support from the Foundation's employment advisors, as well as the opportunity to take part in employability workshops. This programme is a collaboration with the Health & Wellbeing department, and as such, offers participants 1-2-1 personal training sessions.
REIGNITE applicants must be over 50.
Tackling Tottenham Youth Unemployment & Crime Through Sport
The Community Development team currently delivers a variety of themed programmes that strategically link with national and local government agendas that are a powerful force for change. Our partners help us to develop and deliver creative, innovative and engaging programmes for people from our local communities.
Young people who access these programmes improve their sports skills which has a positive mental impact, building self-esteem and empowered attitudes. By engaging young people in a range of constructive activities, it creates opportunities to get back into education, training or employment.
Through this work, together we can steer young people in Tottenham away from the trap of adolescent unemployment and crime.
