Specialisterne Northern Ireland is a not-for-private-profit community interest company which supports autistic people and people with other neurodivergent conditions to get ready for, secure, sustain and progress in careers. As part of the international Specialisterne network which pioneered the Autism at Work movement and which spans thirty-two cities in fifteen countries for seventeen years, we partner with leading employers internationally to work towards the goal of one million careers for autistic people and people with other neurodivergent conditions.
Established in 2014, Specialisterne NI took a co-design route to address unemployment and under-employment of autistic people. Together with autistic people we have developed a community model of employability for and by autistic people. We are now expanding the community model of employability to include neurodivergent people who are autistic and people who have dyslexia, ADHD, OCD, or Tourette’s Syndrome. Ongoing listening to neurodivergent people means that programmes continue to adapt to provide the additional supports that help neurodivergent people secure rewarding careers.
This is a unique opportunity to use client facing skills to support diversity and inclusion. At Specialisterne NI you will have the opportunity to work with a small team of autism and neurodiversity specialists as we develop new tools and techniques which support companies to recruit, retain, and develop the talents of neurodivergent people, and support the career development and well-being of neurodivergent people.
