Employment Opportunities for Autistic Adults

Submitted via our Guest Contribution Form


In this month’s Mensa magazine there was mention of a company called Auticon of London who employ autistic adults for IT and Compliance consultancy.

The following is taken from their website:

‘Auticon Consultants have exceptional strengths:
  • Intuitive recognition of hidden patterns in mass data
  • Genuine quality awareness: seeing errors rather than searching for errors
  • Special interests and a passion for IT: in-depth technical knowledge
  • Unconditional honesty: autistic professionals tend to be forthright and honest – a significant advantage in compliance projects
  • Above-average attention to detail and concentration, even in lengthy or repetitive tasks’

This is interesting albeit with a fairly narrow focus. Anybody know of autism-friendly employers who are looking for other types of skills?
