City, University of London (City) and Autistica are collaborating to deliver a 30-month project to validate and promote an accreditation scheme that demonstrates how well businesses include and support neurodivergent individuals in the workplace.

The candidate will be the driver of this KTP partnership, working with academic and company partners to ensure key objectives are met. The Associate will apply statistical models to data, develop facilitated and robust data storage and access techniques, and automate the index.

In addition, the candidate will identify trends, patterns, and correlations within the collected baseline data, and manage stakeholders, engage with employers, and effectively communicate benefits and criticality of neurodiversity inclusion.
