The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London


London’s #1 College for Skills

Following the North London Citizenship sifting and selection event at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London earlier this month, 130 people were invited back to the College to take part in the final stage of the recruitment process to work at the Olympic Park during the 2012 Games.

Following the North London Citizenship sifting and selection event at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London earlier this month, 130 people were invited back to the College to take part in the final stage of the recruitment process to work at the Olympic Park during the 2012 Games.

The process involved a final interview with recruitment agency Michael Wisher who, if accepted, will guarantee candidates a four week job during the Olympics working in either retail or catering.

College mentor, Kane Walker, who completed his Business BTEC Level 3 at the College last year, sailed through his interview and has secured a job in the Olympic Park during July. He said: "I'm always open to any opportunities the College presents, and this one is particularly beneficial. I'm currently at university and I'm running my own business, so I'm hoping this experience will add to my CV and provide me memorable experience."

In addition, current Science Level 2 student and College ambassador, Adaize DeSilva, left the event with a smile after successfully completing her second interview and guaranteeing herself a job in catering. She said: "I was already looking for work at the Olympics so when this came up, I was really excited.

"Working at the Olympics will be a new and fantastic experience and something that will look impressive on my CV wherever I go in the world. I really appreciate the opportunity and I'm thankful that the College provides these types of opportunities for its students"

Hani Gue, who completed his Public Services Level 3 at the College last year, also sailed through his interview to secured a job at the 2012 Games. 

Adaize, Kane and Hani will join approximately 100 other successful candidates at the Olympic Games in July.

North London Citizens set up the recruitment project to get as many people from North London working at the Olympic Park as possible. The College recently became a member of North London Citizenship, and as a result participated in the jobs fair.

North London representative, Matthew Bolton, said: "Over the last 6 months we have secured Olympic jobs for 1,200 young people, all at a living wage.  Today is it so important to bring opportunities to young people in Haringey and North East London."
