Every autistic person and their autistic traits are unique. The truth is, autism has no “look” or even one set of traits, strengths, or struggles. At auticon, our team members have broad and diverse interests – including as technology experts – and we are respected for it.
The auticon recruitment process is specifically tailored to autistic adults, away from traditional job interviews. The process is divided into three parts: Initial Assessment, In depth testing and the Final Assessment
Once we have reviewed the application, we will invite the suitable candidate for an initial informal chat. During this time we will ask the candidate to complete a technical questionnaire, which provides us with an understanding of the candidate’s technical skills.
In Depth Testing:
In the second phase, the candidate will complete a more comprehensive test that assesses the candidates technical and soft skills.
Once that is completed the candidate will be invited to a three-day workshop. The workshop simulates a workplace environment where group activities, logical tests and case studies are completed.
At the end, the group will present their findings back to the business.
The session finished with a one-on-one coaching session by one of our job coaches that provides useful feedback to the candidates.
For those candidates who have been successful, auticon will do refence checks and then provide the candidate with an offer of employment.

James has been working in auticon Australia for about a year and a half now. He says one of the things he’s most proud of is the way he has integrated with client teams across vastly different areas.
He was given an autism diagnosis at the age of four and working at auticon is James’s first role. On completing his schooling, he found the prospect of employment and job search daunting and was anxious about his ability to “fit in”. Since starting at auticon things have really changed for James.
“In terms of work, it is going great. There’s very little stress and anxiety and I think that it can be attributed to auticon’s unique job coach system which essentially pairs consultants with a job coach who can act as an outlet to discuss any issues.”
“I really think this sort of robust system really makes auticon standout amongst similar consulting firms.”
Most of our autistic team members are hired out of 2 years of unemployment and the value that a career adds to their life is significant. Our belief is that long-term employment can improve the lives of autistic adults, creating personal autonomy, enhanced job skills, and increased personal confidence.
By asking annual survey questions of our autistic consultants, we measure how our efforts have collectively contributed to sustainable change. Evidence shows that our employees experience significant improvements in self esteem, autonomy, and the development of valuable new professional skills.
