A TV company are looking for people with autism to take part in a programme about employment

Please see below a call from a company called Optomen TV who are hoping that the BBC will commission a programme that will demonstrate the positive contribution people with autism can make to the workplace.

A new BBC project is looking for people with Asperger Syndrome who are job seekers to help with research. The project team are keen to contact people with autism who feel they have skills to offer employers but who are finding it difficult to get a job.

The idea of this project is to look at the science of how people who could be considered to have a neuro -diversity are an asset to an employer, focusing on individual strengths, rather than difficulties.

If you would like to find out more please contact Emma or Simon at Optomen TV.

020 3227 5927


The project also has a facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Employ-Me-Optomen-TV/805137639556390.
