Recruit neurodivergent employees
We work with businesses who want to recruit a more diverse pool of employees. ASM works in partnership with corporates and other organisations to create opportunities for neurodivergent candidates.
From ring-fenced internships for autistic graduates, to a suitably-adjusted recruitment, induction and retention process which levels the playing field for neurodivergent candidates. We will support you to achieve a good match between the specific role and the skills, experience and aptitude of a particular cohort of recruits. We can then provide ongoing advice and support, if and as required, to enable each neurodivergent employee to achieve their potential in the workplace.
