First project in Portugal

Jun 22, 2021

The list of countries in which Specialisterne carries out projects continues to grow. This June we have started the first project for the inclusion of people with autism in Portugal. Critical Software, a leading IT company in Portugal, will hire a first group of people with autism for software testing, programming and other IT tasks at its offices in Lisbon, Porto and Coimbra. Specialisterne will carry out its usual process of search and selection of candidates, training of candidates for several weeks, preparing the company for inclusion, and inclusion itself with the support of a job coach.

The project will be carried out by staff from Specialisterne Spain and Specialisterne Brazil and, we hope, will be the first of many other projects that will promote the labor inclusion of people with autism in the neighboring country.
