Opportunities created in the region for job seekers with Autism

A new employment program for the local region – the Talent Hub Albury, has created new
job opportunities for local jobseekers on the Autism Spectrum.

Specialisterne has been working with multiple public service agencies to create job
opportunities for people with Autism who may otherwise have been disadvantaged by the
regular recruitment process.

Specialisterne recently facilitated a talent program for people with Autism with a government
agency in Albury and collaborated with local disability employment service, The Personnel
Group, to support the program at a local level. The program, the Talent Hub Albury is an
employment program showcasing the skills and abilities of people on the Autism Spectrum.

Specialisterne Australia work with companies seeking to diversify their workforce and help
find talented jobseekers with Autism looking for a career in a particular role or area.
Specialisterne have worked with some of Australia’s most recognisable organisations,
such as; Services Australia, Australian Taxation Office, Westpac, Australian Bureau of
Statistics, Weir Minerals, SunPork Farms, and the Victorian Department of Health and
Human Services. Local disability employment service – The Personnel Group, was thrilled
to be invited to help source candidates for this program.

A total of ten positions were available at the government employer’s Albury office with five of
these positions filled by jobseekers with The Personnel Group. The successful candidates
are now managing the input of data, such as client correspondence, scanning and sorting of

Mr. James Smith, Business Development Manager at The Personnel Group said “We are
excited to have been a small part of the Talent Hub Program here in
Albury/Wodonga and to have brought opportunities to our deserving jobseekers.”

“To have new roles created in the local community, especially in a time like this, has been a
real positive. Add on to that, the fact that our jobseekers have been showcased for their
abilities and you start to understand why this is such a wonderful opportunity. We cannot
thank Specialisterne Australia enough for the opportunity to collaborate,” said Mr. Smith.
