Autism Advantage Programs

The Autism Advantage Programs will assess candidates for multiple roles with Canberra and Brisbane employers via an online 3-week program, or via a condensed talent match process. 

Over the 3 weeks candidates will undertake a range of technical, practical assessments which are led by both Specialisterne and the partner employers, designed to assess aptitude for job roles. The program also involves workshops related to developing your employability skills, a team agile challenge, and the opportunity to experience a ‘day in the life’ with employers.

Below are the program dates which may be subject to change:

Hiring

Specialisterne Australia exists because autistic candidates are being overlooked for employment, largely due to the many barriers that autistic candidates come up against when competing for employment in typical recruitment practices.

Specialisterne has created an end-to-end recruitment and employee support framework that removes those typically found barriers, and replaces them with practical, demonstrative assessments and activities whereby candidates, over a patient process, have the opportunity to:

 

  • better understand the requirements of the roles they are competing for to assess if they are the right opportunities for them
  • meet team members and managers throughout the process
  • connect with others who have previously gained employment via this program
  • demonstrate through practical assessments and activities their motivation and suitability for the available roles over a patient process
  • ‘show’ what they can do (not just tell someone what you can do)

At Specialisterne Australia our values are Respect, Clarity, Accommodation, and Accessibility. We keep these in mind in all that we do.  We work with our partner employers to promote and sustain a diverse and inclusive workforce.  To support you further throughout your journey, we provide a mentor and buddy, and we work with you to tailor an individual plan to accommodate your needs in the workplace, also providing a period of support for both you and your future employer, ensuring a successful transition into your new role.
