Specialisterne NI is a specialist consultancy that recruits and supports talented people with Autism, Aspergers, or communication difference in the workplace. We work with people who may have a diagnosis of Autism or Aspergers, or who can find communication in the workplace difficult. Our experience helps employers recruit and retain people with communication difference in the workplace, and grow diverse, effective teams.
As part of the Specialist People Foundation, we contribute to a global aim of one million jobs for people with Autism.
Specialisterne NI are delighted to invite autistic people who are job seeking to join Recruit+ and Recruit++ programmes, which are part funded through the Northern Ireland European Social Fund Programme 2014 -2020, the Department for the Economy, and the Department for Communities. Recruit++ is also part funded by the Belfast City Council.
Recruit+ and Recruit++ are designed with input from autistic people and employers, and have the aim of providing the specific supports autistic people can find useful to start or resume rewarding careers. A number of participants on Recruit+/++ have secured jobs and our Autism Specialist team are inviting new participants to join the programmes. Should these be of interest, please contact email@example.com Mobile 07565 936191

For the team at Specialisterne NI, ‘playing’ with Lego is all in a day’s work, a social enterprise recruitment consultancy that pairs people on the autistic spectrum with highly skilled jobs in the burgeoning IT sector.
At Specialisterne NI, we use Lego Mindstorms Robots to identify skills and any support needs of participants. By building Lego Robots in small teams, participants demonstrate skills in completing a systematic task, as well as self and team management. We then share what we see with participants and where appropriate use this information to match participants to job roles. When completing the assessment for a current employee, we use the information to help the employee perform at their best in the workplace.
Specialisterne opened in N. Ireland in April 2014 and as a first project supported participants on the Autistic Spectrum in the DEL2014/15 Software Test Academy, all of whom secured job roles.
