Tottenham launch recruitment drive for Army veterans to fill steward and security roles

London, March 13: Tottenham Hotspur are set to give an opening to veteran unemployed military officials as the club has launched a recruitment drive for ex-military servicemen and women to become stewards, security staff and hosts at their new stadium which begins operation, later this year.

According to the Royal British Legion’s Household Survey, out of the 1.1million military veterans of working age in this country, around 120,000 are unemployed.

In order to give some of them an opportunity to return to business again - working in partnership with military charity Sporting Force - Spurs are hoping to fill at least 50 full time and part time jobs for their new stadium which is still under renovation.

This initiative is said to be the largest veteran recruitment scheme by any Premier League club.

Donna-Maria Cullen, executive director of Tottenham said: "The club is a long-standing supporter of our armed forces and we are proud to be offering meaningful, long-term employment opportunities to ex-military servicemen and women through our new stadium development scheme."

Candidates have already started to apply for the job and if selected they will go through appropriate training in time to prepare them for their new role for the next season.

Spurs new reinvigorated stadium when finished will be the largest stadium in London and the stadium has reportedly already given jobs to around 3500 people. And now with such new opening, the people of UK will surely relish their chance to join Harry Kane and the rest of the squad in the new stadium.
