Construction jobs on offer to local people
09 December 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
The Club this week hosted its first construction-focused Jobs Fair at White Hart Lane as part of its continued aim to deliver employment opportunities on the site of the new stadium development.
A total of 20 employers, including contractors and sub-contractors involved in building the new 61,000-seater venue, offered live jobs and training opportunities to around 500 local young people in attendance.
An estimated 3,000 construction jobs are expected to have been delivered by the time the new stadium opens in August 2018, and the Club is ensuring that people living within the local area benefit from the employment opportunities created by the scheme.
As part of a drive to address unemployment levels amongst 18-25 year-olds, the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation has launched a Construction Academy, offering teenagers interested in construction careers a two-week programme that involves on-the-job training on the new stadium site.
