Specialisterne Canada, is a non-profit organization that specializes in working with employers to help them recruit and integrate individuals on the autism spectrum or who face similar challenges in the employment market, including people with ADHD/ADD, OCD, Clinical Anxiety and similar neurodiversities. We recognize that people with autism or other neurodiversities are disadvantaged in standard hiring processes and therefore often end up under or unemployed, despite innate talent and great academic achievements.
We are currently working with TD to help them recruit for emerging talent roles in IT. This is a great opportunity for computer science (and other related faculties) students, perhaps graduates or recent graduates looking to gain valuable work experience in an accommodating environment where they are offered all the support they may need. The roles are of various levels so both under and postgraduate students and alumni are encouraged to apply.
