ASPIeRATIONS work with employers and people with Asperger Syndrome and high-functioning Autism.
ASPIeRATIONS has been set up to build a bridge between business and talented people within the Asperger community and to create employment opportunities that have a lasting benefit for all.
We do that by recognising that there can be some distinct challenges that come with welcoming people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism into the workplace, and then using our expertise and experience to help businesses overcome them.
The Asperger community boasts a wealth of talent that UK business is currently missing out on.
Through insight, support, guidance and expert knowledge around neurodiversity, we can connect forward-thinking employers with people who have the ability and creativity to deliver innovation and results.
Creating the right working environment for you
Employers may be asked to make reasonable adjustments to make sure they are offering you a working environment that meets your individual needs.
The organisations we work with have an understanding and awareness of changes they may need to make in order to give colleagues with AS the best possible environment to work in.
Levelling the playing field
We help employers understand that many traditional recruitment techniques are challenging for those with Aspergers or high functioning autism. We work with them to design recruitment and selection processes that provide clarity and reassurance to mitigate the inherent challenges associated with interviews and assessments.
Improving workplace cultures
Our work with employers to both raise awareness and also support specific situations improves understanding of those with Aspergers and high functioning autism amongst recruiters, colleagues and managers. Creating cultures in which diversity of thought is welcome and encouraged has benefits for all employees, not simply those with an autism spectrum difference.
Helping you to find the right employer
We will only place our candidates in organisations that we deem to be Asperger Fit ‘n’ Friendly. That means businesses which meet our own ambition in ensuring people with AS are welcomed, supported and valued in the workplace.
