Employment & Skills
Tottenham Hotspur has created 1,697 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.

Construction traineeship - Kamari’s Story
Kamari is a local young person and was referred to the Kick-Off project from Homes for Haringey.
He struggled with confidence issues, did not have a clear plan for the future, and wanted support with finding employment.
As is the case with many of our appointments, we built up a solid CV and started looking at employment options. Kamari expressed that he was interested in the working within the Construction field and was put forward for the Construction Academy.
Soon after gaining his CSCS card, Kamari started the Construction traineeship which meant that he would get ten weeks of groundwork experience.
Kamari impressed the employers at Base so much that he was offered a permanent job on site after two days on the traineeship!
He is thoroughly enjoying this and recommends the Construction traineeship. “The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation has really helped me gain confidence and I don’t think that I would have a job without their help.”
Visit our Jobs board to explore current job opportunities and the impact of the new stadium development on the employment prospects of local residents.
The new stadium will be the largest capacity football club stadium in London, creating a new sports and leisure destination for the capital with a hive of activity 365 days a year.
The Foundation is working with key partners to fill the jobs we need to serve guests and match goers when the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium opens.
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.

Tottenham Hotspur Foundation works with the Premier League and Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) to deliver this successful football-based youth mentoring programme.

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.

The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation provides two job coaches who work with local organisations to help individuals access and apply for employment opportunities.
