Neurodiverse individuals bring diversity of thought, innovative ideas and creative solutions to complex problems. Diverse teams positively impact an organisation’s culture, working environment, productivity and work output.

WithYouWithMe helps neurodivergent individuals overcome traditional barriers to employment and break into high-paying, high-demand tech roles by providing free role matching, tech training and job placement.

Whether you are new to technology or already a tech professional, our aim is to give you the opportunity to find a career that celebrates your unique abilities.

How it works

The first step is to take our online self-paced assessments, which will generate a comprehensive report covering your unique skills, aptitude, learning style and ideal cultural fit.

From there, we’ll recommend some high-demand tech roles you would naturally excel at – and give you access to our free, industry accredited training.

Finally, we have a global network of like-minded partners who are looking to employ neurodiverse talent just like you into their teams – and we’ll guide you through this process.

If you are ready to see what tech roles await you, sign up to our neurodivergent program.

Our user success stories

Erin Deacon

Meet Erin Deacon

“I was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as an adult. ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects the parts of the brain that help us plan, focus on, and carry out tasks. This diagnosis changed my life. It also uncovered the underlying cause of my speech impediment (Palilalia), which is defined by the involuntary repetition of words and phrases during verbal output.

As a result, I struggled in starting a career. I had a business degree, but I had no one to help me look for work. I needed extra support and guidance, but I didn’t know who to ask or how to ask for it. I struggled with making a good first impression in phone and face-to-face interviews. I knew I wanted to work in digital marketing, but I didn't have experience.

With the assistance of my ADHD Coach, I discovered WithYouWithMe, completed their aptitude assessment, and discovered that I was a creative thinker and that I excelled at digital marketing and project management. When I told WithYouWithMe’s Career Success team about my situation, they made it their mission to find me the necessary marketing work experience. Following my four-month work placement, I was hired as a full-time Digital Marketing Specialist by WithYouWithMe, and I have since expanded my career into other organisations and possibilities.”

“I was diagnosed recently with ADHD which helped me to understand some of the challenges I’ve faced through my career. I had always wanted to get into tech but as a single parent I didn’t have the flexibility to be able to attend formal classes at TAFE or uni. And then I came across WithYouWithMe.

All of the things that had previously held me back – like resumes and cover letters – weren’t needed. The team was warm and genuinely helpful. The aptitude and skills assessments were spot on and helped match me to a great entry-level Service Desk Analyst role. I did that role for 10 months before WithYouWithMe found a new opportunity with one of their partners. I still can’t believe I landed my dream job – an Associate Analyst (Operations Support) at Monash University.

“WYWM has changed my life completely. I gained training, support, encouragement and a sense of value and community. I was able to pivot into tech. I would never have been able to do this without the free training and flexibility provided by WYWM. I can’t recommend this organisation and their life-changing program enough.”
