WHAT YOU’VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR JOB FAIRS...
On the jobs fairs...
“The Tottenham Hotspur job fair was a great opportunity for us to advertise our positions to the local community. We interviewed several candidates and were delighted to offer an administrative position to someone who has now started work for us and is settling in well.”
Michelle McAuliffe, Ardmore Construction
On the apprenticeship schemes...
“Ensuring our young people gain the skills and training they need to fulfil their potential is vital to getting more of our residents into long-lasting employment. The apprenticeships on offer in Tottenham are a fantastic way for our young people to get a first foot on the jobs ladder.”
Councillor Joe Goldberg, cabinet member for employment
“I’d been going down to the job centre in Tottenham and my advisor told me about the apprenticeships open day at White Hart Lane. Through the apprenticeship scheme I gained my FA Level 2 football coaching qualification and was offered a contract at Tottenham Hotspur Foundation. That was three years ago and I’ve been here ever since.”
Tottenham Hotspur Foundation coach, Mo Mumin
