Job description

Tottenham Hotspur Foundation (the Foundation) is a registered charity and 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 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.

Premier League Inspires uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to support 11-18-year-olds who are marginalised or at risk of not reaching their potential; supporting them as they move through the education system and early adulthood. Under the Premier League Inspires brand, the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation delivers life skills, Health and Wellbeing interventions, collapsed curriculum days, social action projects and a range of other educational activities.

At the Foundation, we believe in the immense power of our football club to transform people lives for the better.
