Autistic adults often have extraordinary cognitive and technical abilities, yet many find it difficult to secure or maintain mainstream employment. There is also an ongoing STEM skills shortage that poses a real challenge to UK businesses.auticon recognises this situation and is the first international enterprise to exclusively employ autistic adults as consultants.
The extraordinary talents of our consultants are what makes auticon unique - their cognitive diversity allows them to bring new perspectives to otherwise unsolvable problems. By creating autism-positive work environments and offering highly individualised sustained support mechanisms to autistic employees, auticon provides its corporate clients with a means to tap into the amazing talents of autistic people while creating well-paid long-term careers for its team.
Our business is based on the traditional IT consultancy model: highly talented experts are employed by auticon on a permanent basis. Each individual’s skill set is then matched to a specific client assignment. Clients are charged a day rate for auticon’s consultants at a level that matches the standard market rate. auticon’s consultants and clients are offered the support of our in-house job coaches who ensure that the consultants’ work environments enable them to deliver to their full potential.
