Business Disability Forum Partner Royal Bank of Scotland teams up with auticon to offer jobs to Edinburgh-based autistic consultants

12 February 2019

auticon UK, a social enterprise which exclusively employs IT consultants who are on the autism spectrum, has teamed up in partnership with Business Disability Forum Partners Royal Bank of Scotland, launching a new base in Edinburgh, as part of its strategy to create more jobs for autistic adults in Scotland.

Now in partnership with Royal Bank of Scotland, its first step will be to offer full-time permanent employment to three autistic consultants who will work on IT projects at the Royal Bank of Scotland Headquarters in Edinburgh.

auticon UK’s CEO, Ray Coyle, said: 

“Unemployment among autistic adults is a major issue in Scotland, so we are thrilled to be working with Royal Bank of Scotland to launch a new base for auticon in Edinburgh. Our goal is to offer sustainable, long-term employment to as many autistic individuals in Scotland as possible, and we are inviting any candidates with a background in tech to get in touch.

auticon consultants offer market-leading services in tech and IT, and are incredibly popular with blue chips. Our partnership with Royal Bank of Scotland has paved the way to our launch in Edinburgh - and we are keen to grow our presence and work with major firms and SMEs across the country.”

Royal Bank of Scotland’s Chief Marketing Officer, and Executive Sponsor for the bank’s disability agenda, David Wheldon, added:

“Royal Bank is committed to, and passionate about, building an inclusive bank for both our customers and our colleagues.
