Welcome to Specialisterne Ireland

Specialisterne is an innovative social business concept originally founded in Denmark in 2004 and has since expanded to operate in 12 countries. Specialisterne is internationally recognized as the first and foremost example of how people on the autism spectrum can be included and realise their potential in meaningful and productive jobs.

Specialisterne Ireland was set up in 2013 to support people on the autism spectrum to gain and maintain employment in an Irish context. Specialisterne Ireland has developed hiring and management practices that facilitate the employment of our candidates by removing the barriers to once inaccessible industries and careers. Since our establishment in 2013, Specialisterne Ireland have successfully partnered with more than 30 companies. We, along with Specialisterne organisations worldwide are working to prove the business value in hiring people who think and communicate differently and to build capacity for diversity in the labour market.

In 2016, under changes in the Companies Act (2014), Specialisterne Ireland Ltd. became Specialisterne Ireland CLG (Company Limited by Guarantee, Company Number: 2981268PH). It is also a registered employment agency (EA 3757) and a registered charity (RCN 20200622). Specialisterne Ireland is a social enterprise with a mandate to be self-sustaining
