Specialisterne USA is recruiting!

Specialisterne USA works with employers to help them integrate more neurodiversity into their workforce. Presently, Specialisterne USA is working with Booz Allen Hamilton to recruit for several roles under their Neurodiversity@Work program.

Specialisterne USA provides recruitment, staffing solutions and management support to businesses interested in employing neurodiverse talent. A different perspective or an alternative communication style can be a great asset to any employer, yet because of standard recruitment processes and management practices, many people on the autism spectrum or with other neurodivergence face systematic barriers to accessing and maintaining employment. Our process is designed to avoid these barriers.  

Booz Allen Hamilton is an EOE that empowers our people—no matter their race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, veteran status, or other protected characteristic—to fearlessly drive change.

Descriptions of the roles are provided below. Applications should be submitted in full no later than  July 23, 2021

The Recruitment Process

 

Application

The first step in the recruitment process is for interested candidates to apply for the roles. This will involve completing an online questionnaire as well as submitting their resume to Specialisterne USA. Instructions for applying are included below. Applicants will be shortlisted for participation in the next step based on a review of each online questionnaire and assessing the likelihood of fit for the roles for which we are recruiting. 

Employment Workshop

The next step in the Specialisterne recruitment process is an Employment Workshop. It is a hands-on, task-based experience where you will work on specific projects in a relaxed setting. It is an opportunity to learn about our approach to hiring, and for us to get to know you – what motivates you, your interests and your skills. 

Training Program

Candidates whose profiles are well-suited for the roles for which we are recruiting will be invited to participate in a three-week skills evaluation and training program on the employer’s site. It will include case studies, real-life projects, as well as on-site training relevant to the roles and working environment. While employment is not guaranteed after the training program is completed, only in very rare circumstances have candidates not moved on to become full-time employees. 

Employment

Employment offers are made to the candidates with the best fit. Once accepted, the individuals will transition into their positions at the organization. Specialisterne USA will provide support where necessary, which may include modifications to the work environment.

Those not selected can have their profiles added to our database for consideration for other more suitable job opportunities in the future.
