Job description

Founded in 1882, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club is an English Premier League and Women’s Super League Club, based in North London, with millions of global followers.

 

Led by the late great Bill Nicholson, the Club became the first in England to win the League and FA Cup Double in 1961, and the first in the UK to win a European Trophy two years later. Spurs has since been home to some of the game’s great entertainers, including Jimmy Greaves, Glenn Hoddle, Paul Gascoigne, David Ginola, Gareth Bale, Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane.

 

The Women’s team gained promotion for the 2019–20 FA WSL season after finishing second in the 2018–19 FA Women's Championship and has been a professional full-time set-up since.
