Specialisterne is a specialist consultancy that recruits and supports talented people with Autism and Aspergers, and similar challenges. Our experience helps employers recruit and retain talented people and grow diverse, effective teams. We are a national organisation, which partners with local service providers and businesses to develop the most sustainable programmes possible while developing a mentorship/management model to enable employers to expand their recruitment to include high functioning people with autism and similar challenges. As part of the Specialist People Foundation, we contribute to a global aim of one million jobs for people with Autism.

This programme is supported by Ability which is co-financed by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.

What Others Say About Us

Liam Ryan
Employing people with Autism has brought a greater sense of cohesion to our teams. It has also allowed us to bring additional talent on board through a different channel as people with Autism tend to be more technically minded and think in a diverse but structured way. This is a way of harnessing that talent and diversifying our workforce at the same time.
Liam RyanManaging Director - SAP Ireland
Specialisterne has helped me go from unemployed to full time employed in the IT Sector. The excellent support, guidance and mentoring throughout the assessment and placement process, had resulted in SAP offering me a full time position. I could not have achieved this without the help and support of Specialisterne
