3 ways you can help us help adults on the Autistic Spectrum in NI

Giving Tuesday 2

 

On Giving Tuesday there are 3 ways you can help Specialisterne NI help people on the Autistic Spectrum get ready for employment:
Option 1: Become a Corporate Partner
 A not-for-private profit social enterprise, we are seeking 10 corporate partners who will help fundraise for weekly Career Clinics for long term unemployed people on the Autistic Spectrum. A 2013 NI survey showed 60% of respondents knew someone with ASD in their own family, circle of friends or work colleagues, that is why fundraising for Career Clinics should resonate with many employees.
Our team have lots of fundraising ideas and team-building initiatives that will have positive outcomes for your staff and for unemployed people on the Autistic Spectrum! Specialisterne NI are trained in utilising social impact measurement tools such as Social Return on Investment and so corporate partners are kept updated regarding the impact each £ raised makes for the local Autistic Community and the local economy, which helps your employees see the difference they are making.
Option 2: Become a client
With over 200 graduate job seekers and students seeking placements, selecting Specialisterne NI as your recruitment partner helps bring you talent you may otherwise miss and helps create a level playing field for people on the Autistic Spectrum. Our team of Recruitment Consultants and Autism Specialists have over 17 years combined experience in recruitment match CVs to your environment and support you through the Recruitment process, and during the initial employment period for new starts.
Specialisterne NI training workshops coach your team in communicating with all staff and overcoming biases to make better decisions. Our next workshops are Monday 5 December:
