Do you need help looking for employment?

The Auckland branch is now supporting jobseekers on the autism spectrum, after receiving funding from the MSD for this purpose. We can assist with all parts of the employment process, e.g. identifying career options, writing cover letters and CVs, or practising interview skills. We can also accompany clients to job interviews, approach prospective employers, provide on-the-job coaching and post-placement support.

In order to be eligible for this service, jobseekers should:

  • Have an ASD diagnosis, and
  • Be on a main benefit from WINZ, and
  • Be willing to work a minimum of 15h/week in a mainstream workplace.

Please get in touch with Romy, our employment support person, via email if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment:

romy.hume@autismnz.org.nz
