William Hill to support Club’s employability work
12 April 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
The Club and William Hill have launched a new programme aimed at helping young people in Haringey into employment.
The Tottenham Hotspur Elevator Programme, delivered by the Club’s Foundation in partnership with William Hill, will provide 18- to 24-year-olds from Haringey with education, training and opportunities to secure work experience and employment.
It builds upon the Club’s wider employability work in relation to the new stadium development, which once complete is expected to support around 3,500 jobs – an increase of 1,700 new jobs a year.
William Hill, whose headquarters are based near the Club in Wood Green, has provided the Tottenham Hotspur Elevator Programme with a £100,000 grant to fund the programme as part of its community commitment, Close to HOME, which seeks to make a positive contribution to the local communities where the company is based.
Participants can expect to have access to:
• Over 100 traineeships and employment opportunities
• Customer Service and Business Administration Certificate qualifications
• Work Placements, apprenticeships and full time employment at William Hill
• Ongoing 1-2-1 mentoring support from the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation
Grant Cornwell MBE, CEO of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, said: “The Club is committed to driving employment within its local community and we are delighted to be adding the Elevator Programme to our wide range of projects with the support of William Hill.”
Bill South, Group Director of Security and Community Affairs at William Hill, said: “We are proud to be launching the Elevator Programme with the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, which will continue our company commitment to providing skills and employment opportunities to individuals in our local communities.”
