Welcome to Specialisterne NI
Specialisterne NI is a social enterprise which contributes to Specialisterne’s international goal of 1 million careers for autistic people. With autistic people and employers, we create solutions that reduce the barriers for autistic people to be part of communities, and to enjoy careers.
Meet the Team
We have a team of dedicated professionals who are passionate about Autism and skilled in recruitment consultancy, assessment and career support.
What makes us different is our knowledge of Autism and of business environments. All of our team have studied Autism at university, usually to Masters level. Everything we do is guided and informed by our autistic community.
We use these skills to help autistic people or people who have a communication difference, start or continue careers and we assist companies to welcome and develop the talents of autistic people.
