TalkTalk launches autism employability programme

TalkTalk has partnered with charity Ambitious about Autism to launch Employ Autism in the North West.

TalkTalk has had a longstanding relationship with Ambitious about Autism, raising an £4 million for the charity since 2006, helping the charity’s nationwide employability programme that aims to prepare 10,000 autistic young people for work by 2022.

TalkTalk chief executive, Tristia Harrison, said: “We are proud to be partnering with Ambitious about Autism to enable thousands of autistic young adults reach fulltime employment. Through showcasing the wonderful capabilities of this programme at our event we hope this will encourage other leading businesses to follow suit.”

This partnership follows TalkTalk’s HQ relocation from London to Salford and its major recruitment drive across the region, creating 350 new jobs in the region.

The internet company is also a member of the UK Government’s Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme which is committed to growing the economy in the North of England.
