About the organisation

Aspierations

More and more people have come across and want to learn about Asperger Syndrome in the workplace.

There is a high incidence of Aspergers (often undetected) in the top echelons of the professional, technical and business sectors. They tend to be very intelligent but find it difficult to flourish or even survive in the large corporations that could best utilise and benefit from their talent. People with Asperger Syndrome (AS) are a most valuable resource, just waiting to be tapped.

An agency is desperately required to provide fulfilling, appropriate employment for people with AS and to help management provide more suitable working environments for their mutual benefit. Companies should reward the talents of this unique part of their workforce and reap the rewards – increased product and profitability.

Aspierations intends to be that organisation.

We are inspired to action, fired by the realisation that so many are affected by this condition. Sharing and exchanging experiences, resources, advice and information with others can certainly help to find best practice. Having discovered that similar initiatives are beginning in other European countries, we have been motivated to create some practical, pragmatic and positive solutions.

Aspierations is an advocate group for people with Asperger Syndrome in the corporate world.

Our dedicated recruitment channel is due to be launched early Autumn and a new website is currently in development. This will help us go forward and therefore makes for a highly exciting time for an intern to join us!

You will work across every aspect of our social enterprise - getting involved with marketing, development, PR, social media, fundraising and more! You will be in constant contact with a wide range of people, often at very senior levels and will attend events and high level meetings. This is a great opportunity for you to get involved with our innovative outreach initiatives and to gain hands-on experience in the various aspects of running an organisation.

We are also recruiting for people to be part of Campaign Campus Initiative - check out our other opportunity or contact us for more information!
