Tottenham Hotspur Foundation (The Foundation) is a registered charity and is the community arm of Premier League football club, Tottenham Hotspur. The Club, through the Foundation, seeks to use the power and unique appeal of football to provide opportunities that change lives throughout its local community.
The Foundation is based at the Grade II listed 18th century Percy House on Tottenham High Road – painstakingly restored by the Club as part of the wider sport-led regeneration of the area. We are driven by a passion for creating positive change in people’s lives within an area of significant socio-economic deprivation, yet where a vibrancy and richness of talent and ambition exists. The Foundation harnesses and builds on this through a range of projects and initiatives to pursue, achieve and sustain desired impacts and outcomes, utilising partnerships within the private, not-for-profit and public sectors.
The Foundation is seeking a person-centered, enthusiastic and experienced Job Coach to support young people aged 16 to 25 on the Project Search programme. The successful candidate will have great respect for people with special education needs and disabilities (SEND) and be highly motivated and determined to develop the skills, qualities, and aspirations of participants increasing their access to full-time employment.
