Specialisterne USA is recruiting!

Specialisterne USA works with employers to help them integrate more neurodiversity into their workforce. Presently, Specialisterne USA is working with IPG Mediabrands to recruit for several roles through their Neurodiversity Hiring Initiative.

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. 

IPG Mediabrands is a new world agency group designed with dynamic marketing at its core. As the global media and data arm of Interpublic Group, Mediabrands is comprised of +10,500 marketing communication, media and technology specialists in over 130 countries. They are a diverse group of innovators, technologists, designers, scientists, strategists, buyers, thinkers, planners and mathematicians that are committed to building new solutions for the world’s top brands.
