Further Demand For Even More Electricians At New Tottenham Stadium!

We've all heard about the struggle that is getting the new Tottenham Stadium built in time for the season. The demand for construction workers shot up as the club aim to meet the high expectations they have set upon themselves. The latest talks on the new stadium state that there is now even further delay which has seen yet another call for even more electricians! Paying very well as you guys may have heard, we thought we would tell you guys the latest on where could be your next place of work.

Football London reports that such construction problems are being caused due to the emergency safety systems on site which are the reason for the even stronger demand for electricians. If you guys have been looking lately, there have been adverts posting about electrician jobs offering very lucrative day rates with longer hours than usual all in an attempt to finally finish the stadium. We all knew there were problems, but to put yet another advert out for more available work is cutting it pretty fine!

As for the company overseeing the project, here's what they had to say,

 

"hugely frustrated that this has occurred with these systems at such a late stage"

Matches have already been arranged to be played at other venues but hopefully, with the new job adverts, all will be put to an end and fans can look forward to the opening ceremony. However, as it stands, there is still uncertainty over where Tottenham vs Manchester City will be held...and thats 2 months away!!

Football London reports that there are already 600 electricians working on site with the new job ports offering work rates ranging from £30 an hour to £1,250 per week with "significant quantities of overtime" available.

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was originally due to open on September 15. In response to the delays the club has offered refunds to season ticket holders for the Liverpool and Cardiff matches.

Here's what the Spurs' Manager had to say:

"We all feel disappointed of course with the announcement from the club this week. I feel so sorry for myself first of all, for our fans, the players, everyone, and of course for our chairman. He tried with the board and everyone who is involved with building the new stadium to arrive on time. It’s been a massive effort.

"We feel it every day, that effort. That we cannot deliver for the Liverpool game is massively disappointing for everyone. I understand that. But the first to be disappointed is Daniel [Levy]. Our job is to try to help, to be positive, to adapt ourselves in the moment that we are going to play in our stadium.

"Of course I understand the problems about the tickets, the money and everything, and I feel sorry for them. I want to say thank you and apologise. We’re going to try to reward them by winning games. It’s the only way we can add and can pay all the effort they are doing and they are going to do for the club."

We hope for the clubs sake that the new qualified electricians on site can get it done in time!
