ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT A WORLD THAT EMBRACES AUTISM?

If so, we invite you to learn more about opportunities with our I CAN team. A key distinguishing feature of I CAN, and a source of enormous strength, is our commitment to ensuring that at least 50% of our team is Autistic. We feel very strongly about providing a workplace which celebrates and nurtures Autistic talent and also attracts non-Autistic team members who relish the opportunity to work for an Autistic-led organisation.
