Kicks off the year with a recruitment campaign aimed at enabling talented people on the autism spectrum to build successful, fulfilling technology careers.
Toronto, ON — January 26, 2022 — auticon Canada, an organization that recruits, trains, and employs adults on the autism spectrum for lifelong careers in technology, is kicking off 2022 by launching a recruitment campaign aimed at adults with autism who are looking for workplaces that help them live happier, healthier lives by building successful and fulfilling technology careers.
auticon recognizes that many adults on the autism spectrum often have higher aptitudes in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and the talents for a career in information technology. Despite this, many find it difficult to secure or maintain employment. To help them succeed, auticon works with companies to identify the right jobs and work environments and pairs them and its technology consultants with job coaches who provide management-style training and ongoing coaching.
The launch of the 2022 recruitment campaign follows a very successful year in 2021 for auticon Canada, where the organization saw record growth in the recruitment and placement of consultants. Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, auticon Canada hired 50 new consultants during 2021; and the percentage of consultants placed grew by 24% over 2020.
“We are incredibly proud of the growth we saw in 2021, and more importantly of the work that our consultants have undertaken in client engagements,” said Garth Johnson, CEO of auticon Canada. “In addition to the new consultants we were able to bring on board, we were also successful in adding a number of high profile company names from across Canada to our list of clients, including Canadian Tire, Rodeo FX, Technisys, and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). We are excited to launch our 2022 recruitment campaign to drive our growth and bring exciting opportunities ahead for our consultants.”
auticon Canada is currently looking for talented autistic technology professionals at all skill levels to fill a number of positions in the areas of software development, data science, cybersecurity, and QA and testing.
